As Cruise Lines implement and continue to evolve their temporary health and safety plans and requirements, we’re committed to adapting to these plans and providing you the continued support you have come to expect from Autism on the Seas.

Listed below are the general measures we have implemented and will continue to enhance.

Details of these measures will be available closer to your cruise date and onboard your cruise, as these measures will be evolving as time passes. 
In the meantime, do not hesitate to Contact Us with any questions or concerns.

Our Cruises/Services

Our Staff Assisted cruises remain as scheduled, based on the cruise lines ability to conduct cruising.  We will contact our booked guests when and as soon as we learn anything affecting any of our cruises.

There is no requirement that Autism on the Seas guests must meet (relative to Covid-19) to receive the Autism on the Seas services, other than what is required by the Cruise Line (or resort) or any country, federal or local government.



Masks, Testing and Vaccine Accommodations 

  • Please refer to the published Cruise Line protocols (links below) for updated protocol details.  Masks, Testing & Vaccine reuirements are continuously evolving.
  • Any guest that has difficulty with, has a medical, religious or disability reason in wearing a mask, taking a nasal swab test, and/or taking the Covid Vaccine, please contact us for accommodation information.

Published Protocols for Guests Cruising on their Own (Cruise Assistance Package)   Added 7-22-21

  • For cruises without Staff Assistance (using our Cruise Assistance Package), our office will contact guests the week of their cruise to convey any differences in the regular assistance cruise lines provide to families.  Please contact us with any concerns or questions.

Published Protocols for AotS Sailings    Updated 7-22-21

  • For official information on each of the cruise lines protocols and requirements, the effect of those protocols on the regular cruise line services, please visit their websites below.  Our goal is for our onboard Staff to conform to these protocols and provide to you as much assistance as possible in helping you and your family have the safest and healthiest vacation possible.

  • *Potential Modifications to AotS Group Activities and Services
    Cruise Line Physical Distancing protocols and Ship Venue capacity limits may in turn cause modifications (or in some cases the possibility exists for an exclusion of an accommodation) to some of the typical AotS Activities and Services.  Cruise Line protocols are potentially different from ship to ship, and most likely to change from cruise to cruise, and even day to day once onboard.  As your cruise approaches and if you have any questions, please contact our office.  We will make every attempt to deliver the same accommodations as we have pre-pandemic, and in lieu of any restrictions by the ship, we will alter our accommodations the best way possible. 

  • Notable Enhancements

For the safety of our guests and volunteer staff, Autism on the Seas is requiring its Staff Volunteers to be fully Covid-19 vaccinated, for sailings (and resort stays) departing in 2021.  This requirement may be extended without notice.

We realize the challenge some guests may have in adhering to some of the temporary Covid-19 Cruise Protocols.  An AotS staff member dedicated to your family during our Staff Assisted cruises will provide exclusive assistance in aiding you and/or your family in adhering to cruise line Covid health and safety protocols, and at the same time provide reduced interaction with multiple Staff.
