Great news! Glad it went well! Yes, asking for wheelchair both boarding and disembarking is important - that's a very long walk to get off the ship - and then no benches, etc to grab. And standing in lines, etc. If you are assisted off, it's quick and easy - usually through luggage pickup, Customs and out to your bus area, pick up waiting point, taxi, etc. Makes life much easier! I have a scooter at home and rent one for the ship - and it has completely changed my life. I don't need it in the house as I can walk 10 steps or so, but going to a store, a show, restaurant, etc are impossible. As much as I hate to admit the age and disability - these aids make life so much more pleasant for BOTH my husband and me!! I'm glad we have them!! Keep in touch!
