Buddy Cruise in such an amazing organization! We took our first cruise in 2016 and had the time of our lives. New friends became family. This conference at sea is invaluable for all it serves.

We have the best time cruising with the Buddy Cruise family. The dances are my favorite but the conference speakers are always so good. Such a great opportunity for families to vacation with other families like theirs. Memories that last a lifetime.

Never thought of traveling on a cruise ship. Scared for the well being of my daughter and her medical history. After I saw the “Facebook page to Best Buddies” I began to believe this cruise would be a great adventure for my daughter and me. This is our “first” Buddy Cruise. Able to connect with other families, ask questions about the cruise ship, also about the excursions. What makes it even better: When I ask a question on our Facebook page, I will get a response from previous Buddy Cruisers who have experience about traveling on a ship. We also, have a 1-800 number to call Royal Caribbean Group Customer Service. We look forward to our trip.

Buddy Cruise is an amazing group. We loved the cruise with a conference at sea. Our group leaders are great with organizing and keeping everyone informed. When COVID closed everything down, Buddy Cruise leaders stepped up and provided a weekly schedule of on line Zoom activities to provide our loved ones with fun when everything stopped. Awesome group.

It’s an educational conference at sea, mixed with making new friends, dinners dancing and excursions at exotic ports

From group rates and seamless interface with the cruise line to on-board safety and conference support, they are invaluable.

We went on our first buddy cruise two years ago. To say the least we loved it. It was so well organized and so welcoming.
What helped me love it more was the work they put into making sure we all stayed connected over the lockdown. (The photo posted is of my daughter celebrating New Year’s Eve with buddy cruise friends )
In less than two weeks we will be enjoying our second one and we have brought along other token Montrealers/Canadians.

We were invited on our very first Buddy Cruise in 2014 by some friends. Had a wonderful time, breakfast and dinners were amazing. Every employee that we ran into was very pleasant, kind and we’re willing to do anything to help you. 2021 and we are still cruising with the Buddy Organization. We just can’t get enough of it. Every time my son gets off the ship he asks when are we going next.

We just happen to find Buddy Cruise in 2017. After my dad past away, my mom wanted to do a cruise. I did some research and came across Buddy Cruise. We were so welcomed when we got there. I was a wonderful time. 5 cruise years later. I couldn’t imagine our lives without them.. it’s a great organization and the experience is wonderful. You can pick and chose just how lil or how much you want to participate in activities.. either way they are going to know who you are.. Buddy is now a huge part of our lives. They people we have met, the friends and now what we consider family we have made are irreplaceable…

An amazing group of people! This organization has meant so much to us - from the very first day we sailed six years ago until now. BC is a family. There is a ton of support from Pam, Jorge and the Board. Everyone is included and there are so many activities to choose from. The conference has many timely topics. Excursions - top notch. Can’t recommend highly enough. Come join us!

Once you go cruising with the Buddy Cruise you will always want to join them the next year. Not only are you helping advocate for people with Down Syndrome but you will meet many new friends from around the country.
They will help you with excursions and have plenty of fun things to do on the ship.
The money raised during the walk on the ship will help families with children and adults with Down Syndrome.
Great time, great experience and great people, all for a great cause

We have enjoyed Buddy Cruise since our first in 2013 and go every since. It is our main vacation planned each year. We enjoy seeing friends from past cruises as well as meeting new cruisers and conference speakers.

It is well worth looking into Buddy Cruise for your next family vacation since there is something for everyone in the family to enjoy themselves as well as relax. Check out the BC videos on You Tube and don not forget to watch the "Buddy Cruise News" which is video presentation of the Buddy Cruise kids interviewing fellow BC members.

Even in the challenging time with Covid 19, the Buddy Cruise Directors put together different events for the Buddy Cruise family to help keep the BC kids engaged in fun activities with their BC friends, as well as something for the parents. The Zoom Dance Party on Fridays night via Zoom is our daughters favorite event to dance with her BC friends.

We are proud to be ambassadors for Buddy Cruise living in New Hampshire.

You can read about Buddy Cruise in the "Diversability Magazine" Oct 27, 2019 release.

So check out Buddy Cruise, you will not be disappointed.

My family and I have been on two Buddy Cruises thus far and find it to be a wonderful experience for the whole family. It is a great way to take a vacation since you are with other families who have a child with a intellectual or physical disability. There is something for everyone in the family to do and enjoy on board and at the excursions.
Since it is also a conference at sea you learn from the many topics listed and have great presenters from across the country that have their heart and soul into their presentation's for the family to learn something new. We have meet many great families and have great friendships that have developed as well. We also like how the other cruisers not part of the BC group make our families feel included on board and at the excursions. It was impressive to see over 600 passengers (~300 Buddy Cruisers & ~ 300 other passenger's) on the walking deck during to Buddy Walk (BC15) to spread the mission of diversity and inclusiveness. We tip our hat to what the Arnoldson Family has created in Buddy Cruise. We look forward to each Buddy Cruise we go on to see our friends from past cruises and the new friendships developed on future Buddy Cruises. Thank you for creating great memories for the whole family.

My son and I first met the wonderful organizers of Buddy Cruise 3 yrs ago when we first traveled with them on RC Cruise Ship! We have joined the Buddy Cruise family every year since and are looking forward to our next cruise in November. The Buddy Cruise Family makes new families and friends feel welcome and part of their BC family so that you want to continue with this yearly travel adventure. Everyone has a wonderful time and appreciate all the efforts the BC organizers and board members put into making everyone's experience a memorable one.

When we first went on the Buddy Cruise we are expecting a wonderful vacation however Buddy Cruise is so much more. It is an opportunity to create family and lifetime memories. It’s an opportunity to change the world by changing others perspectives about those with differing abilities. There’s an opportunity to educate yourself to make memories and to have fun in a way that you probably never have. If you have someone with special needs in your life then the Buddy Cruise might just be the thing that changes your world.

We have been traveling with the Buddy Cruise since 2011 and it is still an amazing, fun experience each time! We love the activities, the people, the conference on board the ship and everything about the event. It is expertly run and well managed. We love that we feel that the fellow Buddy Cruisers are now family.

The Buddy Cruise does an amazing job of showing the world that people with differing abilities are more alike than different. We get on board the ship with people asking why they picked this week and get off with them planning to join us next year! Where else can you literally change the world one cruise at a time!

As the parent of individuals with special needs, vacations aren't always something you think you will experience. You are concerned people won't understand your kids or your family. Then, BUDDY CRUISE! It's a vacation, a wonderful family experience, a conference and so much more. For us, it's a dream come true. The most unexpected result of this experience was the new family we gained. Whether it's your first time or you have gone every year, you are part of this amazing family.

I might be biased because my BFF Pamela is a director of Buddy Cruise and her awesome kids came up with the idea to cruise and educate. But, my family and I are more than inspired by this amazing group. I’ve met people who are not “associated” with Buddy Cruise but plan their cruises at the same time as Buddy Cruise because they are so inspired by this group of wonderful people.. I can not say enough about all these wonderful inspirational people!

Our family loves Buddy Cruise! We come every year because it’s so much fun, it’s educational, we get to reconnect with friends we don’t see the rest of the year, and because it’s just good for us. All the programs, activities, seminars are top notch. Pam and Jorge go above and beyond to make each Buddy Cruise an unforgettable experience, and they are successful. We tell everybody about Buddy Cruise because we want other families to experience what we do on Buddy Cruise-love and acceptance and an experience that will make them want to come back year after year!

My 36 year old son has Down syndrome. Prior to his first Buddy Cruise in 2008, he was very hesitant to travel with us (my wife and I are retired). He enjoyed the cruise so much that he has since travelled with us to 36 countries. The travel on the Buddy Cruise is not the main attraction, it is the opportunity to meet with others who are in the same "boat", so to speak. The 2017 cruise will be our 4th. We are both on the Steering Committee of our local Special Olympics and the timing sometimes conflicts with the Buddy Cruise. He looks forward to this event every year.

I have been on two Buddy Cruises with my 30 year old son, who has Down Syndrome. It was a great opportunity to meet others in the same situation. My son and I both made new friends and had some nice trips. Patrick has travelled extensively with his mother and me. The Buddy Cruises were a good way for him to meet some peers. It was a good opportunity for me to meet some of the other parents and speakers to know that we are not alone.

Where did I even start. From Jet skiing in Saint Martin to Dune buggy's in Jamaica to Dancing the night away to workshops with other families, buddy cruise has greatly impacted the lives of many families, mine included. What we have here isn't just a group, but a family where everyone is not only accepted but truly cared for. The networking within the group is phenomenal in connecting families with similar situations, along with offering a grand support group within itself. My family has been part of Buddy Cruise for 5 Years now & we are lifelong members. Come check us out & get involved!

When we found out about Buddy Cruise, the thought of taking my brother-in-law who is now 58 and has Down Syndrome on a cruise with is peers intrigued us. We found out how fantastic the people who plan this event every year are. They make sure there are activities to include all folks no matter what their disability, chances to do something you can not do at home, and make new friends who you can keep in touch with through the year.
My husband and I have taken my brother-in-law on the Buddy Cruise 3 times now and it has been an forgettable experience each time.
Buddy Cruise has the most caring and helpful people working to make the experiences unforgettable to the people who attend whether they are young or old, family or friends.
I would recommend this cruise to anyone who has a family member or friend with a disability.

Our family first found out about the Buddy Cruise several years ago while we were living in Alaska, and have since attended 3 sailings. It has been a fantastic experience for us being the person in our family who has a disability is my 57 year old brother in law with Down Syndrome.
The experience of going on a ship for him has been wonderful great. There are so many people and being with his peers makes him very happy. Even though he is older, there are always activities he can participate in.
Jorge and Pam Arnoldson who founded Buddy Cruise, their family and the crew who help them (they work year round) every year, think of everything for the inclusion of the participants no matter what age. Parents are always included each trip with seminars to help them cope with happenings in their lives.
I can't say enough about the Arnoldsons and the cruise. Anyone who has a child, sibling or any member of their family with a disability should attend a Buddy Cruise to have a fantastic memorable experience.

We cruise ALOT. But traveling with three special needs children is challenging and at times, in the past, isolating. UNTIL we met Buddy Cruise! From my first contact with Pam Arnoldson (director of BC), I felt like family! Not many understand an autistic child with sensory issue that cries and hides because the "lights were too bright" or a child with difficult to understand speech, or children with very complex medical issues, but Buddy Cruise understands and welcomed us. We travel with a suitcase of meds, IV poles and pumps- not a problem for BC.
In the past we may have "travelled " but never felt "included". With Buddy Cruise we were not only included- we had an instant sense of "belonging".
I loved advocating for our children on the Buddy Walk at Sea and showing folks that our kids are more alike than different.
We made great friends, formed strong bonds and enjoyed chatting with people who truely do understand.
The workshops were fabulous- so much to learn.. There was great food and fun and the time went by WAY to quickly. We are registered for BC 2916 and will book soon for 2017.
THIS is acceptance, equality, love and family fun.

Buddy Cruise Inc.-Lithia, FL in three words… AN AMAZING ORGANIZATION! 2015 was the first year my sister and I stumbled across their website, BuddyCruise.org by way of search engines affiliated with Down syndrome. As a sister, caregiver, and a nervous nelly about travel all together I spent just a couple of hours discussing and pointing our family, friends, and my sister’s physicians to Buddycruise.org regarding this opportunity, their response was very positive and encouraging. From the time I contacted the assigned travel agency until the time we returned home, the entire Buddy Cruise organization was very prepared, responsive to all my questions, and made us feel part of a much bigger family. We were welcomed with so many hugs, included in a variety of activities, educated about additional resources, and made many forever friends. The Buddy Cruise organization has given us an opportunity to share our story and experiences on a day-to-day basis with people we work with and meet along life’s journey. Thank you Buddy Cruise Inc.! We’re excited to be seeing you and making more forever friends in 2016!

I have been on every Buddy Cruise since the first sailing. At the beginning of each cruise you barely know anyone but by the end, it is like we are one big family. The cruise includes a variety of amazing speakers and between the entertainment that the cruise line has and what Buddy Cruise provides there is no way you will be bored. If you have the chance to join Buddy Cruise on a voyage one year, I definitely recommend it.

Buddy Cruise, Inc. is one of our favorite organizations in the world and we have participated in many. We have sailed on 5 or 6 Buddy Cruises and each year the experience just gets even better.
