“Thank you for planning an excellent holiday which we thoroughly enjoyed – wish it was for another 3 days. The dialysis worked very well as we were a bit apprehensive for the first time Celebrity was great, our first time.” Mrs N Rahim

“Just a note to say how enjoyable the Rhine cruise was. The dialysis was both caring and sociable.” Mr R Ward

“Just wanted to say many thanks for the Cruise. We had a fantastic time.” Mr P McGouran

“I do wish to thank you, the Charge Nurse and the rest of your dialysis team. You’re doing a great service to those in need of it and who are keen to travel at the same time.  Your variety of ocean and river cruises gives all those who may be interested a wide choice of styles and destinations, while at the same time being able to rely on professional care and service in dialysis needs. Keep up the good work. Thank you once again.” Mr D Yau

“Cruise was wonderful. We loved the Europa2  and Dr. Westerman was a delight to have do our dialysis sessions.” Mrs S Pearl

“We had a lovely holiday and have lots of pictures to remind us of where we went – they are on my screensaver already and are a very enjoyable reminder.  As you know I love these holidays. I am really grateful that I could have a holiday while on dialysis – it is so lovely to get away from home for more than a night!.” Mrs L Osborn

“I’d just like to thank you and your professional Dialysis Team for making my first ever cruise experience so wonderful.  Starting from the time of booking, through the worst parts – waiting for the departure date to come around, right through until disembarkation. The paperwork, though comprehensive was clear and easy for myself and my home clinic nurses to complete, and your advice on what to pack for the expectations of the cruise liner took that stress away. It was good to meet everyone in your team and my compatriots for treatment so soon after embarkation and everything always felt like it was no problem and easily handled.  The dialysis team was totally professional at all times, but that was also complimented by their personalities which meant time on dialysis went quite quickly chatting etc.  The Nephrologist was extremely thorough at all times but was also quite amusing in her own way.  The Charge Nurse was a wealth of experience and definitely the glue bonding the team together and always available for everyone at all times.  The two nurses providing support were effective team players and knew their stuff. Being an accompanied cruise meant there was always someone about if you wanted a chat even on the excellent inclusive shore trips.  It was good to see the planning that went in to arranging dialysis sessions around these activities and the team were always looking to be flexible on start stop times. I will do this again in the future, need to save up a bit first, but would recommend it to anyone.  Thanks for a wonderful holiday.” Mr K Summerhayes

“I wanted to tell you that it was a wonderful cruise and thank you for all the efforts you have had in respect to the dialyses.  Everything was working at the full satisfaction.” Mr J Steinmann

“Just a quick email to thank you very much for all your help with organising our Canary Island Cruise and dialysis on board for my mum.  Everything ran smoothly and the dialysis staff were excellent, friendly, professional and a pleasure to meet.  Hopefully we will be able to travel again using your excellent dialysis at sea service.” Ms C Sharratt

“I want to let you know we really enjoyed the holiday, the ship was very good and the dialysis went well.” Mrs S Platt

“I just wanted to send you an email and say THANK YOU so much for all your help with organising the cruise for my mum and me!  Anoop had a really good time on the cruise.  It was definitely an experience, we managed to go on the organised day trips and see new places.  Many thanks once again, I really appreciate all the help you gave me.” Mrs A Chandhock

“My father asked me to contact you upon his return from his recent cruise which we booked with you.  He wanted me to pass on what a great trip he had and a fantastic break.  On a personal note I would also like to thank you for your service throughout the booking and my endless enquiries.” Ms S Lupton

“Trip was great and dialysis team work excellently together. Nephrologist and Charge Nurse were top notch.  Again thanks you did a great job.” Mr R Gray

“We arrived home safe, well and happy. You might like to know we were delighted with the whole Cruise Dialysis adventure. Apart from the impressively competent and conscientious attention of the dialysis team we both very much enjoyed their company and hope to be able to have future involvement. Rae’s health stood up very well, and she came home better than for years. The river cruise itself was also a great pleasure, at just the right level of comfort, interest and variety without opulence. Just about everything was well suited to our needs and desires – as experienced travellers and critical customers. You would be welcome to let others who might be interested contact us in case they have any questions about customers’ experience with your system.” Mr S Bogner

“Just returned from a fantastic cruise. Everything was excellent and dialysis was 1st class . Have no hesitation in recommending you to others. Thanks for all your help. Hope to book again as soon as unit allows. Thanks again.” Mrs E Adrain

“Recently my husband and I were fortunate to holiday with AmaWaterways. It was ‘The Enchanting Rhine’ cruise travelling from Basel in Switzerland to Amsterdam.  The whole holiday from start to finish was fantastic. The staff on-board couldn’t do enough to ensure we were well looked after.  The food was lovely and plentiful. The excursions were very well organised and catered for everyone. My husband had dialysis on-board which was also very well organised and arranged so no excursions were missed. The medical team were lovely and looked after my husband well.  I would thoroughly recommend this cruise and hope future travellers enjoy it as much as we did.” Mrs S Setchfield

“Enchanting Rhine Cruise.  This was our first cruise with AmaWaterways on Dialysis. Unbelievable staff with impeccable service and attention to every detail from beginning to the end of our cruise. Well organised excursions for all passengers from the very fit to those who needed a slower pace.  The Dialysis team was amazing – professional, efficient, caring and friendly. Thank you Lisa for all your help and support.  This cruise exceeded all our expectations.” Mrs K Coogan

“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 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 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 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.” Mrs 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

“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.”  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.” Katie

“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

“Just a belated note to say thank you and your staff for making the cruise so enjoyable.  The treatment and attention were first class, and I would certainly recommend to anyone thinking of Cruising. As a Widower, Dialysis patient, and first time Cruiser I was very apprehensive about booking a cruise. From the outset Lisa was extremely helpful and made the whole process easy, alleviating many of my concerns.  The paperwork was very easy to follow and my dialysis unit very helpful in ensuring all tests etc were completed. Once on board we met the Charge Nurse and his team.  The Charge Nurse’s enthusiasm for dialysis was remarkable explaining every detail with great clarity.  The treatment was as good as any private hospital. Being single status was not an issue as I met several friendly people including the nursing staff (on their day off) for dining and in the bar. Any Dialysis patient out there considering a cruise – take the plunge- I can thoroughly recommend it.” Mr Graham Curtis

“Apologies for a very overdue message – an extremely busy spell for me with a new job starting and moving house – but we both wanted to say a huge thank you for making our time on board absolutely fantastic. We really appreciate the hard work and care put into making our trip so special, and many thanks too to all the team (not just for adopting me!). We hope to come back sometime in the future.” Antonio Coleman-Harvey

“I just wanted to say how great the cruise was. The facilities on board were above and beyond what Mark and I were expecting. Nothing was too much trouble for the crew members. As for the dialysis, we’ll what can I say? Lisa; the Charge Nurse and his team were amazing! The care they gave to all the patients was fantastic – they all made us feel special and really looked after us. I have to admit I was pretty nervous about dialysing on a boat with strange people but about 10 minutes after meeting the team it was as if we’d been friends forever! The welcome speech given by Lisa and the Charge Nurse really put everyone at ease and it was a great opportunity to ask any questions. I would say to anyone who feels like they can’t go on holiday because of being on dialysis to just get in touch with Cruise Dialysis and see the world open up again. We are already planning next year’s holiday – a river cruise along the Danube. I think we’re hooked now!! e’ll see you again soon.” Kim Fountain
