The mission of Buddy Cruise is to provide educational opportunities and resources for families, while promoting awareness, acceptance, inclusion and advancement for individuals with Down syndrome.
Our events are a forum for prominent educational speakers to address a wide range of Down syndrome and disability related topics. Buddy Cruise is unique because we not only give families the opportunity to gain information through educational workshops & events, but they are able to network with other families from across the globe that are in similar situations and form lasting bonds. All of this is done on a cruise ship allowing for inclusive opportunities throughout the ship and in the various ports of call. Families who otherwise have a very hard time finding a scenario to meet all family members’ needs are accommodated with a variety of activities for all ages and abilities.
