  • “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
