About Dialysis at Sea Cruises®

We are the world’s largest provider of dialysis services aboard cruise ships. Since the formation of our company in 1977, we have helped thousands of individuals on dialysis and their families experience the pleasures of cruising and the excitement of taking their dream vacation. Travel with us in confidence as all of your shipboard medical needs are handled by trained medical professionals.

Experienced Professionals

Each cruise is accompanied by a board eligible/certified nephrologist and two or more dialysis nurses, based on the number of dialysis cruise patients. Our medical staff is English speaking and recruited primarily from North America. Twenty-four hours a day, patients can "beep" our shipboard dialysis staff, and if necessary, they can reach our stateside medical support personnel around the clock.

Medical Equipment

We use the new generation Fresenius 2008K for your dialysis treatment. It provides maximum flexibility for your specific prescription with excellent performance and reliability. The sophistication and ease of use of the Fresenius 2008K are unsurpassed and will allow us to duplicate the exact therapy that the patient is accustomed to receiving at their home unit. All of our bio-medical technicians are Fresenius 2008K factory certified.
