Oxygen on ship

Recommended Posts

We are very hampered by my wife needing oxygen. She has been using a concentrator but since Covid even that has been problematic. What is the situation for each of the cruise lines operating in Europe? We can’t fly but might be able to get into mainland Europe by train. Otherwise we’ll travel from a UK port.

She may not be able to sail at all in the foreseeable future.  Some lines, like Cunard, are denying passage to anybody who needs supplemental oxygen.  (With the exception of CPAP machines.)  The reasoning is that anybody with impaired respiratory function is at very high risk of serious disease if infected with covid.

Princess recently revised their guidelines to allow oxygen concentrators, some other lines had not restricted them.  I agree you should check with the individual cruise line.  My husband used his personal concentrator around the ship and we rented a room one from Special Needs at Sea for the cabin.
