Hi all,
Has anyone been on a hemo dialysis cruise, as I have a big birthday next year and would like to do something special.

Any comments please

Hello fellow cat.
I haven't done it but have sent for a brochure and info and am a bit
confused by the dialysis prices. I'm unsure if we can claim the money back after.

I have booked a dialysis cruise for September. The dialysis costs more than the cruise . Check with your Trust what they will refund, if anything. Although it was confirmed to me before I booked that all my dialysis costs would be covered the Trust changed their holiday rules 4 months later and I was left with no alternative but to find another £2,000.00. Together with the appropriate insurance it has proved to be a very very expensive holiday and that's before I think about excursions. Let's hope it turns out to be a holiday to remember for all the right reasons :roll:
