Narrative

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.  Our Staff Assisted Cruises continue to meet and exceed our guests expectations, but do not take our word for it, take theirs:  Testimonials

Our Staff Assisted Cruises are selected from regular cruises throughout the year, and we 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.  Our professional Staff (educated, experienced, background checked and sanctioned by the cruise lines) accompanies you on your cruise to provide these amazing vacation and travel experiences onboard Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Norwegian, Disney and Carnival Cruise Lines.   Find out What's Included

To accommodate families even further, our Staff Assisted Cruises are open to all Extended Family and Friends.  Extended family and friends can book directly with us, and they also receive all of the same benefits and services, including expedited/priority boarding, private muster drill, dinner seating, private venue sessions, reserved show seating, siblings and child friends can attend our respite sessions and everything found here:  What's Included

Some guests prefer to cruise on their own.  For those guests, we provide a "Cruise Assistance Package" (Cruises without our Staff) on all of the major Cruise Lines.  This service is free of charge, by simply booking with us.
