Head out on an incredible family cruise with the help of Autism on the Seas. In partnership with Royal Caribbean since 2007, the cruise vacation service seeks to accommodate adults, families and children living with special needs.


Engage your family and friends with interactive adventures, sightseeing and even educational services provided on select ships. Mix and mingle with families living with autism, Asperger’s, down syndrome, cerebral palsy and all cognitive, intellectual and developmental disabilities, or opt for a more privatized family experience.


Choose to cruise with or without specialty staff onboard. Staffed cruises include private sessions and activities with expertly trained staff ranging from one–three hours at a time. Check out the site’s full list of accommodations, services and activities for a wide range of needs.


Some guests prefer to cruise on their own, without professional assistance. Once you have your destination and travel schedule in mind, check out the Cruise Assistance Package and various cruises available. This option is offered on all of the major cruise lines and is a free service available upon booking.

Give the kids the ultimate fantasy experience onboard a Royal Caribbean International and DreamWorks Animation cruise expedition. Kids (and parents), meet your favorite characters from Kung Fu Panda, Shrek and Madagascar over breakfast and watch 3D films, ice shows and live performances by night. Enjoy quality time with the family in a safe, friendly and fun environment.


The cruise lineup is constantly updating, so be sure to check autismontheseas.com for up-to-date sailings, added activities and special events. Head out on the open sea for New Years, or hold out for the spring sailings next year. Enjoy unforgettable travel experiences onboard select cruise lines including Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Norwegian, Disney and Carnival.
