Interesting comments folks.
My, now 90 year old father-in-law sends his regards from approximately 900 nautical miles south east of Hawaii.
I is certainly enjoying himself, as are we. The Oosterdam crew has been excellent. And, yes, there are many folks at or near his age, all with some level of mobility challenge. Interestingly, there is a gentleman on board who just celebrated his 100th birthday a few days ago. Now that's dedication to cruising.
For those who are in need of mobility assistance, and would like to investigate a level of assistance slightly above a walker, there are a number of Aussies and North Americans on board who have brought their new portable electric scooters. Not only are these excellent shipboard and dockside, but the airlines are now beginning to accept them more readily for cargo transport - providing they have dry cell batteries. They're worth checking out, only if for your peace of mind.
Keep on cruising folks, and continue to use this thread to your own advantage.
