Pixie Vacations is now working with Autism on the Seas.
This program is a free service which goes the extra mile for autistic passengers. I was made aware of this service through my sister-in-law and her husband. They have a 6 year old son who is autistic, and another sister-in-law has a 9 year old daughter who is autistic- so these are things we want to keep in mind as we plan a family reunion. This will make the trip easier for the kids, as well as the parents if we have these services.
They arrange for all your needs: diet, dinner seating, priority boarding and disembarkation, extra assistance at pier, and any special equipment needed.
You may opt to cruise on one of their group cruises which are set up dates, otherwise you can go on your own schedule and have some of these extras for your family.
They work with many different cruise lines- Royal Caribbean, Disney, Norwegian, Celebrity and Carnival.
These services are specific to Royal Caribbean and Carnival:
* Autism awareness cruise staff
* Special nametags
* Service animal needs
* Pre-cruise questionnaire so they can make sure they have all needs covered
* Cruise PECS
* Social story- printable pages to share with your family member what will happen and what to expect
* Private muster drill area
* Special gifts
* Exemption from dinner dress codes
* Any other special requests made at time of booking
How to book:
If you are interested in this service, I can help you get your booking and deposit set up (group or individual), then I will contact Autism on the Seas for their services once we have a confirmation number. As long as you haven’t applied full payment, Autism on the Seas is happy to take your request.
