    I have arranged to have my dad accompany me and DH on our February 10th 7 day cruise. He requires oxygen 24 hours a day and my travel agent assured me it could be done. We are now just shy of six weeks away from our trip and I am really starting to get nervous. I didn't realize how expensive it is (oxygen on the plane, oxygen in the connecting airports, oxygen from the Orlando airport to the terminal and back to the airport, and oxygen on the ship). Has anyone else done a cruise while on oxygen? I guess I am just looking for a little reassurance that it can be done and that it will all work out in the end. Thanks! <IMG SRC="/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif" alt="confused">

    We have had posts from people who have done oxygen at the parks, but no one has posted yet about the cruise. I can't see that it would be that much differnt than the parks. You would just need to make sure you have an adequate supply for the whole cruise.
    If you haven't made arrangements yet, I found one Medical supply place that specifically lists repsiratory supplies on their website. Here's the info:
    Colonial Medical

    If you don't have a WDW contact person, you may also want to contact WDW RESORTS/SPECIAL RESERVATIONS
    (407) 939-7807 [voice]
    (407) 939-7670 [TTY]
    These numbers are listed in the Guidebook for Guests with Disabilities as the place to contact for special room arrangements and equipment.
