The essential cruise ship supplies for kids with special needs include items such as hats and sunblock because of the increased exposure to the sun. If your child is hearing-impaired or vision-impaired, it is important that you ask for an alert kit at the time of booking your cruise. Familiarize your child with the alert kit, so that he or she knows how to detect a danger (e.g., fire). If your child has problems with controlling his or her digestion, bring enough supplies such as diapers, pull ups, wipes, etc. Regarding wheelchairs, most ships are mandated by the ADA to have ramps, lifts, wide doors an corridors, roll-in shower and other ADA-mandated requirements. Check with the cruise line ahead of time to discuss your options and to understand the room accessibility.
