Adults with Special Needs - Services

Staff Assisted Cruises ONLY

We cater our vacation services to all adults with Special Needs (including Autism, Down Syndrome, and all Cognitive, Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities) who travel with thier family, group home or caregiver.  We provide the same opportunities and services for adults as we do for children cruising with us.  From the same amount of respite with our staff, to private venue sessions..... everything.

Accommodations & Services

adults-with-special-needs---accomodations-and-servciesAll services outlined in our Staff Assisted Cruises, are provided to each of our adults, adjusted to accomodate each guests ability.  Please review our Interactive Brochure for more detailed information and a sample schedule of activities.

Customized Activities

We customize the activities we provide, based on the adults traveling with us.  We provide an Adult oriented Questionnaire to be completed prior to each cruise, so we can learn the likes and dislikes, needs and expectations of each adult cruising with us.  Many PRIVATE activities will be custom planned for each cruise, based on the preferences of our adults with autism.  These activities may include Karaoke, Dance Parties, Board Game Sessions, Group Shore Excursions, and more.

Private Adult Events and activities

There are opportunities for our adults to socialize in low key, quiet areas, and we will have Private gatherings organized as a great get-away from the hustle and bustle of all of the ships activities, as well as the opportunity to enjoy ship venues in a Private setting.






Staff and Respite

The Autism on the Seas staff accompanies you to coordinate all of the private activities,services and Respite we provide.  Our staff interacts with our adults of all disabilities during all of our events and activities to promote participation and to ensure each adult expereinces all the cruise has to offer.  


Parents and caregivers of adults with Special Needs cruising with us receive the same amount of Respite as do Parents with children 17 and younger.  There is NO aging out of our services.
