  1. anyone travel to greece with a mobility scooter if so which one. tx.
  2. my friends and i are looking at greece for our next trip. however, from what i've read/seen since greece is built into a mountain will i be able to use a mobility scooter to get around. tx.
  3. first let me say have a wonderful time tokyo. did you take a scooter or rent one? will take a look at the transformer. ive looked at so many after a while it all jells together. have a great time. tell us about your trip when you come back.
  4. thank you for all the info. especially the triaxe. i do not have a hatchback probably never will. and i really, really do not like the idea of taking the scooter apart. but i will look into the triaxe sport @ 44#'s. tx.
  5. when we went on some excursions there were people that had scooters that didnt fold and the bus driver would not take these people on the bus. also a lot easier when you go onto a tender when you have a folding scooter. chances are the crew will help you get onto the tender. how are you goin to manage a non-foldable scooter on a tender? i think not!
  6. we also recently back from a cruise and i saw the triaxe in action. the lady was not small and she went over every type of road condition w/o problem. and the battery lasted her all day. she said she went last year to paris and it handled wonderfully over cobblestone roads. im seriously looking at one.
  7. we just returned from ncl bliss alaska cruise. i wanted to discuss the mobility issue or lack thereof. i used a mobility scooter both on the bliss and in ports. there was absolutely no problem at all. yes, the elevators on the ship are crowded. but for the most part people will step aside and try to help you. if you can walk a bit but still have a problem, a scooter is a necessity on board. whether its this ship or another. you are spending so much money anyway, whats the difference. there was absolutely no problem in getting around in juneau, ketchikam, skagway or victoria. went to mendenhall glacier and the drivers put the scooter under the bus w/o issue. i also went to ocean raft wildlife adventure and these people went out of their way to make sure i was taken care of. the only thing to fear is fear itself. so its up to you whether you stay on the ship or not. you didnt pay all this money to stay on the ship. so take a deep breath and go for it. you'll love the adventure.
  8. so tim did you just go into the door to the bar that has the sign on it?
  9. any thoughts on luigi scooter?
  10. thats exactly what i dont want to do. i dont want to take anything apart & carry it.
  11. ncl bliss told me what company they used for scooters. i wasnt thrilled as they use go go.
  12. if you look at the tours offered whether w/the cruise lines or by yourself, they will tell you if wheelchair accessible.
  13. no problem getting around anywhere in bermuda or hamilton w/a scooter.
  14. i agree. a scooter gives me more freedom. i dont have to have someone pushing me. i dont need my husband breaking his back and getting exhaused because he has to push me around. then i want to see one thing and he's interested in something else.
  15. i think that is more of the problem than the walker. if you cannot climb the steps how will you get on?
