Our sailing friend's son is high functioning autistic and he was not on the trip though he does cruise with his dad most times. I will pass your info along to him as it is important. His son is as precious as a kid can be and we say he just says and does things we all wish we could say and do. Thanks for your perspective and hopefully others may read it and not fear cruising.
RCCL also has a special program they advertise.
Here is the link:
You may want to forward that to your friend.
Carnival has basically done the same things for us but I have never seen them advertise it anywhere. Of course, we are all still learning. Back when we started cruising with our son, there wasn't much known in the general public about autism accept the movie "Rainman".
We have come a long way!!! Thankfully!!
