  • “We had a wonderful cruise and having dialysis on board was not a problem it worked out for all the shore trips, I had the early morning session which gave us breakfast at normal time and the rest of the day to ourselves, would have no hesitation in recommending Dialysis at Sea.”

    Mr I Dougall
  • “We returned from the Celebrity Eclipse cruise to the Western Med and wanted to let you know how smoothly the dialysis and arrangements on board went.  The dialysis staff were so attentive and friendly with back up from the cruise staff. I appreciated being able to spend some time on shore whilst my husband was well looked after.  Thank you for help and personal approach in coordinating the cruise arrangements.”

    Mr & Mrs W Banner
  • “For someone who had never been on a Sea Cruise and also being a Dialysis patient this venture was viewed with excitement but also with some degree of trepidation and worry.- Well we are back and what’s more are already looking to plan the next one. All our fears and worries quickly evaporated. The dialysis ran seamlessly.  The service provided by the caring and considerate staff and the facilities were second to none, in my opinion they were 6 star. Through out the whole journey everyone had the Can Do attitude.  It was a holiday of a lifetime. Thank you Lisa for all your help and support.  We will be back”

    Mr B Porter
  • “We had a lovely time the trips at port were just long enough for us before we had to go back onboard for dialysis.  The nurses were friendly and it was all really organised and relaxing.  Thank you”.

    Mrs R Thwaite
  • “We went on the 14 night Celebrity Eclipse cruise departing Southampton on 3rd September 2017 to Gibraltar, Lisbon etc and it was brilliant.  Everything about the trip was superb. Without exception the staff was helpful, cheerful and friendly.  The dialysis unit under Dr Dale was very efficient.  Will definitely book another cruise with you from Southampton”.

    Mr & Mrs D Tarrant
  • “An e-mail to say that we really enjoyed the Rhine cruise. The boat was good, the food nice, the company great. The dialysis went OK.  Thank you for all the arrangements and making the holiday very enjoyable.”

    Mr A Richardson
  • “Jack and I would like to thank you for organizing our very interesting holiday.  The service from the start was amazing everything went according to plan and those who were supposed to meet us were there, it made the holiday for me.  The staff on board Belvedere were always polite and pleasant.  Jack was very happy with the way the dialysis was dealt with and the doctors and nurses were very professional.  We look forward to having more holidays with you in the future.”

    Mrs A Allen
  • “As my father cannot travel around for holidays easily and enjoys going abroad we decided to try a cruise.  We would never have thought to take a wheel chair if it not been for your recommendation. Armed with a lightweight wheel chair for trips ashore we were on our way.  Father was then able to go ashore even on treatment day, and save energy for pottering around the ship later in the day.  The wheelchair has been a real boon, it features as a Zimmer frame and was so useful going round the airport, it has transformed our view on what is possible for holidays and day trips.  Dialysis treatment on board is easy and is usually fitted in for time in port.  All your booking is taken care of including treatment with medical reports sent by your unit. We have done several with another next year. It’s well worth a try.”

    Miss Y Schofield
  • “First of all  –  thank you for all your help both before and during the cruise.  We enjoyed it very much  – the Belvedere was very comfortable and the food was good.  We were also lucky with the weather  – the only rain was at Nuremberg on the last day !  The dialysis sessions worked well also.”

    Mr R Rowe
  • “We are safely home and I thought I would drop you a quick line to thank you for all your help and support both in arranging the cruise, the dialysis and during our stay.”

    Mrs C Willing
  • “Just a brief thank you note for arranging our trip and the dialysis on board Europa2. We had a great time and the nephrologist and the technician took very good care of me. We are planning another trip sometime next year and will contact you again. Warm regards”

    Mr H Chatlani
  • “My friend and I just got back from a Baltic cruise onboard the Astor.We had a magnificent time really out of this world. The staff spoke English and the other people on board were extremely kind to us. The dialysis was great, the renal doctor even drank champagne with me. We want to sail on the Astor again. Thank you Lisa for everything.”

    Mrs H Vann
  • “The Europa2 was really beautiful and kept in pristine condition. The crew were extremely friendly and the service was impeccable.

    Language was not a problem as all crew spoke English. The dialysis centre was first class and the treatment as good as you would get in your own hospital.
    The Doctor was a very experienced Nephrologist and he really looked after me during the cruise… and the food was excellent.”

    Mr D Stalker
  • “I have just returned from a cruise on Navigator of the Seas. I must say that my dialysis experience onboard was excellent. The three American nurses were very efficient.  The Doctor was charming and attentive.   I can only say that I highly recommend the treatment and care I received. Thank you.”

    Mrs A Benton
  • “Just to say thank you for helping to arrange our holiday, we really enjoyed it and are looking forward to our next.”

    Mrs R Thwaite
  • “We had a very enjoyable river trip. All the arrangements were fine, food and staff very good.  Fortunate also to get excellent table company.”

    Mr D Hunt
  • “Just returned from a wonderful trip on the Belvedere down the Danube.  Good weather, good food and good company with lots of interesting sights along the way and beautiful places to visit  (the dialysis was okay too!)”

    Ms C Martin
  • “Thank you for organising such a lovely holiday and especially help at the airport we would highly recommend you thanks again”

    Mr & Mrs N Kirkpatrick
  • “Just to say a big thank you for all your help with the Dialysis Unit in Teldi, it worked out well for Mick and everything went well in the unit, It was all a learning time for us but very glad we have done this,  Mick was told to carry on with life as usual (ie:holidays) when he first went onto dialysis and without your help we may not have had this lovely holiday.”

    Mrs M Saunders
  • “We had a wonderful cruise and great connections in the travel arrangements.  The Belvedere was very comfortable and the food excellent. The staff were extremely attentive and helpful with one or two outstanding. Wynne’s dialysis  went very well”.

    Mr B Lewis
  • “The Europa2 is a great ship, they really took care of us. The dialysis doctor was very good. Shannon was very pleased with his medical care. I haven’t traveled on other small luxury ships, so I can’t compare them to the Europa2, but I have to say the Europa2 sure knows how to take care of their passengers. Several of the crew that were on past trips were on the ship this time and they made us all feel like we were home. I can’t wait until my next Europa2 cruise in March.”


    Mr R DeSoto
  • “We just came back from the Astor cruise.  Overall a good trip.  We had glorious weather all 12 days, fantastic sunshine, the beauty of Norway came through brilliantly.  Finally the entertainment was all in English and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The musicians, band and the artistes were very, very good.”

    Mr V Philip
  • “Cruise Dialysis means we (my husband and I) can have a holiday abroad.  Dialysis treatments were very good.  It has been so good finding your firm and we have told many other people how good your service is.”

    Mrs G English
  • “A wonderful experience for any Renal patient wanting to go abroad for the first time, dialysis performed by experienced staff who speak English, beautiful scenery, comfortable cabins, wonderful food served by friendly staff and the security of having the company of an experienced Company Representative to help with concerns.”  (Bellejour, Accompanied Cruise)

    Mrs S Hardie
  • “Lisa provides a first class service. It was very reassuring that she accompanied what was my first dialysis cruise. In future I shall be quite happy to take another dialysis cruise with TransOcean.”

    Mr M Pitcher
  • “We are home! It was a very nice two trips (onboard the Bellejour). The weather was cold with showers week 1 but week 2 was lovely weather. Dialysis went well. Now we are thinking where to go next.”


    Mrs S Pearl
  • “A big thank you for all your organisation re the cruise and dialysis,  The Panama cruise was awesome, so interesting and varied. We were truly pampered and felt very relaxed immediately on embarkation. The dialysis was excellent. It was a smooth process which fitted in well with our itinerary and the staff were kind and efficient. It did not impede the enjoyment of such a memorable holiday.”

    Mrs M Junor
  • “The nurses were very friendly, competent, and caring and the resident nephrologist checked me over at the end of every session. I found the whole experience so good that I have already booked my next cruise for 1st October 2016 on a Royal Caribbean boat this time.”

    Mr M Brody
  • “It’s reassuring that an organisation such as yours exist to offer such brilliant opportunities. I just wanted to say thank you for the skill, service and normality you offer to patients and families alike.”

  • “We very much enjoyed the cruise on the Celebrity Eclipse.  The cabin was ample with plenty of cleverly designed space and the food on board was wonderful as was the service. Although I had elected to attend the 5.30am dialysis sessions, I soon got used to getting up that early and it  was the best choice of times as the session was finished early enough to still undertake plenty of excursions at the various ports of call and also to fit in the breakfasts.”


    Mr M Brody
  • “We are back and very pleased about our cruise.  Our expectations were not only met, but greatly exceeded – the ship was excellent, the dialysis treatments very good.”

    Mr M Krautter
  • “We had a super time on Celebrity Equinox.  The cruise and ports of call were spectacular.  Dialysis was fine on board too”

    Mr D Hall
