I'm going to be doing a back to back dialysis cruise next week!!
I don't even have my cabin assignment yet, but I seem to remember that I have to get off the ship and go through customs, but my thing stay on board. Is that right?

Marsha,

First of all you are doing a great service to those in need of dialysis, so take some well-deserved accolades.

My understanding is that you don't have to cart your belongings off the ship. Just you and your passport and booking docs for the second cruise. In some cases you don't have to even leave the ship and they handle it for you.

You don't even need your booking docs. You will be notified on where to meet with other B2B passengers and will be given your new seapass cards and then escorted off the ship with an officer or staff member. You'll have your picture taken when you're lead back onto the ship just like you did when you first boarded the ship on your first week. B2B passengers will board before any new passengers can board. The whole thing takes about 30 minutes.

Awesome, Marsha! I don't mean to sound dumb, but do y'all do dialysis on board?

I think it is through this organization.

Is that B2B on the Oasis?

not dumb at all. It's one of those niche markets that thankfully you don't have any need to know about. If you look carefully, you'll see the dialysis at sea sign down by the infirmary. They have a limited number of lines that they work with, but a great variety of itineraies. My Panama Canal cruise is through them as well.

It's on the Explorer, she seems to be my ship! And no need for accolades, I'm merely reaping the benefits of a company founded by someone who had the wherewithal to combine my two passions into a great arrangement for all of those involved. I'll travel solo, but will hook up with a group with similar interests.
Not much time for planning, but I've been to all of the ports before, so I won't be devastated if I wind up having to stick close to the ship.

My thanks to you both, and to your colleagues. My favorite Uncle requires dialysis every other day, and he loves to travel. I know you said no accolades, yet I thank you for taking time away from your friends and family to make it possible for people (like my Uncle) to travel.
