Just recently I have had a few clients enquire regarding having dialysis treatments whilst taking a cruise. After an exhausting search, questioning and calling different companies, I found out that you can still take a fantastic cruise and receive dialysis treatment!
In basic terms, there are two types of dialysis treatments; Hemodialysis and Peritoneal dialysis. Hemodialysis requires the use of a machine to filter blood and then re-feed the blood back into the patient. With Peritoneal dialysis, the patient requires a sterile, glucose solution to be fed straight into an abdominal cavity that goes around the abdominal organs.
At the moment, there are a few options if you require dialysis treatment and want to take a cruise, but it all depends on what type of dialysis you need. If you require a machine based dialysis, essentially, there are two types of machines you can use. A small portable machine that does a partial cleansing or a large machine that does the full treatment.
Currently, if you require the small machine, the patient can rent these and take the small, rentable machine onboard most of the cruise lines as long as this has been mentioned to the travel agent and agreed by the cruise line.

Well, according to USA TODAY, the best entertainment onboard went to Norwegian Cruise Line on the Epic!!!How did the voting pan out? “Nearly 10,000 of you voted in our online poll in which we asked which ship you find the most appealing for entertainment, and 50% of you cast your lot with the seven-month-old Epic. Another 42% voted for Royal Caribbean's much-ballyhooed, one-month-old Allure of the Seas, the world's largest cruise ship. The remainder voted for Disney Cruise Line's new Disney Dream.”

For two thirds of the cruise, ALL the water activities were closed; the Hydro pool, the 2 swimming pools, the 5 whirl pool spas, even the Sauna/steam room, ALL of them closed!! To top it all off, even the menus on all the restaurants took a hit. The only restaurant that was available for the 2000+ passengers was The Belvedere. This meant that for breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea, the passengers could only get service at The Belvedere restaurant on board the Arcadia!! All due to 6 passengers boarding the ship with the virus, this is according the announcements done by the captain during the cruise.

The final challenge was to build a pyramid in one night. The King gathered all of his men managed to build only five steps. The Alux though, being all by himself sought out the help of his Mother, the witch. The witch went into the forest, collected hundreds of turtle eggs and through magic, created hundreds of Alux.
Like I mentioned before, nearly everyone I met in the Yucatan Peninsula have had some sort of encounter, experience or have had some sort of incident involving an Alux.
