A RICHER Holiday Experience for Maree & Peter's Daughter on Group Cruise

Apart from the Cruise being a great holiday in itself, i cannot express how great it was travelling with like minded or rather same-situated families. We understood each other without explaining. We had each other's backs, we felt comfortable leaving our kids in the company of someone else without fear of judgement or misunderstandings. It was great eating together and going on port adventures together. We met some lovely people and shared alot in one week.

Michelle Ivery & Extended Family Love Our Cruises

Our family has been on two of the Mission Possible cruises (now Rosalie's Cruises & Tours), so far. I was so glad that we happened to find out about them just in time to be part of the inaugural Mission Possible voyage to Haiti and Jamaica in 2013! These trips are great fun, but also very important to us as a family of a special needs child. We will be going on our third cruise soon, after joining the 2014 cruise to Alaska for our second adventure

Brenda says Cruising is a fantastic way to have a family vacation!

Sightseeing cruises, like the Celebrity Alaskan cruise, also allow us to spend more time sightseeing and less time pack and unpacking to get to new destinations. While this is a benefit for us as parents, it's also a benefit for kids who do better with consistency and who prefer to exactly what to expect and what comes next.

Celebrity Cruises Fun Factory great for the Loo Family!

In 2015, we had our second cruise on Celebrity Infinity, my son loved the cruise this time. He usually needs a long time to finish his food; however, he finished within 15-20 minutes and asked to go to the "Fun Factory" (the kids club), he also performed in the talent show. They took very good care of him, they also have a lot of resources like, PECs, quiet corners... And the staffs are all well trained to help him...

This July (2016) we took a cruise to Alaska with Rosalie's Developmental Disability Cruises. It was a trip of a life time -- those that live with autism would understand, the first few days were rough, not sea rough, but autism rough until the boys got the lay of the ship -- the unknown can be a challenge for our boys.

Susan Zimmermann & Family Now LOVE Cruising !

Traveling with our family can be challenging. Our oldest son, Oliver (now 14), has Down Syndrome. He is nonverbal and so frustrates easily; he is unable to walk for long periods of time; and he is known to wander away from us without any hesitation or concern for his own safety.

Why Rosanne & Madeline Stuart LOVE Cruising !

Since our first Cruise, we have been on many Cruises which we try to do once a year at least. We love it and Maddy is in her element, making new friends and practicing every day for the talent quest or dancing show at the end of the Cruise, not to mention I can have a glass of wine and relax as I don't have to drive home after!
