  1. The last time I was in Cozumel I bought a variety of rum cakes and had one a week when I got home, calling it Rum Cake Wednesday, a great reminder of a great port of call

  2. Cruise ships are indeed set up to accommodate in all kinds of shapes and forms the many kinds of disabilities, thank goodness... Larger restrooms, power doors, smoother and wider walkways, relief areas for dogs, etc. we're seeing more and more assistive devices and animals so that handicapped people can enjoy many aspects of cruising.

  3. Flagrant abuses of service animal policies are a major disservice to those with real needs and professionally trained service animals. If your dog is in a stroller, it is a pet.

     

     

    I agree with your first statement. But everything is not so clear cut. A service dog may need to be kept in a buggy for its safety in crowds or in inclement weather when not performing its service. I've also made friends with an owner whose service dog was zipped up in a buggy in the dining room to allay onlookers' fears that the dog will eat from the table. She explained that due to her severely arthritic hands her dog can pick up and hold small items for her, which is especially helpful to her when getting ready for the day or for bed. The dog helps her be independent. When out and about during the day, the dog is well trained, though she sells gets plenty of rude comments about her disability when they notice the dog's sparkly bow and not the owner's disfigured hands.

  4. I feel like I get better at cruising with each trip, knowing what I like to eat, how to read the schedule to find what's fun, meeting new friends and connecting quickly with kindred spirits. I can't wait for the next cruise to use what I've learned each time.
