on the Seas
Autism on the Seas, an international organization, has been in collaboration with Royal Caribbean International since 2007 in developing cruise vacation services to accommodate adults and families living with children with Special Needs, including, but not limited to, Autism, Asperger Syndrome, Down Syndrome, Tourette Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and all Cognitive, Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. These services quickly expanded to other cruise lines.
The Foundation’s website also has a Financial Assistance Program
The Staff Assisted Cruises are selected from regular cruises throughout the year, and assist adults and families in accommodating the typical cruise services, as well as providing specialized Respite and Private Activities/Sessions that allow our guests the use of the ships entertainment venues in an accommodated and assisted manner. Staff who are educated, experienced, background checked and sanctioned by the cruise lines accompany you on your cruise to provide these amazing vacation and travel experiences onboard Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Norwegian, Disney and Carnival Cruise Lines. The Autism on the Seas Foundation offers two types of financial assistance for families that have a child diagnosed with a disability, wishing to vacation with Autism on the Seas Cruises with Staff.
