Just found out about cruise via the NxStage Home publication. Interested in the cruise BUT, my biggest concern is what happens if you need medical help while on the cruise? Medicare does NOT cover charges in foreign countries I am told. Most cruise ships have a medical unit but will not bill insurance companies and require payment up front. These charges are quite high. Do I understand info posted that a Home Hemo patient can take their own NxStage machine on the cruise and do their treatments in their rooms???What IF they have a problem with their machine. (If you were at home, NxStage would overnight you a replacement machine.) As far as land excursions are concerned,you can generally do A LOT better if you book thru a local sight-seeing company/or individual in each port rather than with the tours that the cruise ship offers; also less expensive. Please check into that avenue. Thx, Donnie
