    Each and everyone was a different memory and I am so happy I have been able to share all these trips with my sister Patty and nephew Tate. We all have the time of our life, and have everlasting memories of each one that I shall cherish the rest of my life. 3/6/2016 2:18:38 AM

    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. 12/19/2015 1:23:35 PM

    2015 will be the fifth cruise we have been on since 2009 with our Buddy Cruise family. In 2011 we had our daughter and missed it. In 2013, we decided to go on a separate cruise and did not realize how much we would miss our family. This is truly the most amazing experience and you do not only educate and grow awareness but you also gain lifetime friends and what I call my BC family. If you are considering joining us...I say you have no idea what you are missing out on and you will too become a BUDDY CRUISER FOR LIFE! 11/9/2014 10:15:38 PM
