Panorama, with autistic adult, 12/28-1/4

Recommended Posts

Off the Panorama this morning, the staff was beyond wonderful in dealing with my son's special needs.  If any of you are worried don't be afraid, everything from embarkation, to muster, to room cleaning, through disembarkation handled exactly as I requested.  And if your autistic adult/child doesn't like to leave the room for meals, the handy dandy Carnival Hub app was the best!  From ordering to the room in 12 minutes!  

As far as the ship itself...new, beautiful, lots of fun.  I would sail it again, same itinerary, just because it was so easy given our family's needs.  Was it my favorite?  No.  All of us like the Oasis class ships, and DH and I prefer MSC.  But the service, the comedians, the Carnival Kitchen, Java Blue, Cheers inclusions...truly enjoyed it.  Next time DH said we had to do Havana Cabanas, and I can live with that 🙂

We stayed at the Queen Mary, which I recommend.  It was so convenient to walk across the parking lot with our bags, and it was nice not being in a traffic jam trying to get to the ship.  

Happy to answer any questions.

Thank you so much for the positive comments about what you experienced. 
‘That’s so wonderful, it can be overwhelming sometimes for families. 
As the mom of an adult autism spectrum son it makes me smile!! 

I’ve been really tiring of the negative/critical/holier than thou comments on here lately. 
Nearly every thread has them now. 
Thanks again for the positive post!!!
