    How many shoes?

    One pair tansandals, one pair metallic sandals, one pair flip flops for showers.........that’s all. I used to take a suitcase full.....nobody ever noticed any, so this is easier, Sent from my iPad using Forums
  2. Me,too! They also didn’t have to be told what appropriate dress was. They wore socks, dress shoes, slacks (no such things as dress jeans——-jeans were work pants), a woven pressed shirt, and, depending on the occasion, a jacket and tie. This description covered private parties, church attendance, school special occasions, weddings, funerals, and, yes, office work. What a difference! Sent from my iPad using Forums

    Hotels in Fort Lauderdale

    We have stayed at the LaQuinta near the airport. Free shuttle from the airport, clean, friendly and a free breakfast. There are three or four in the area. The one we have been in had a pay shuttle to the port. Also, pets are allowed so you might hear a woof or two but never a problem for us, but someone with allergies might have a problem. People with pets are restricted to particular rooms so you won’t be in a pet friendly room. They do have a website. Sent from my iPad using Forums

  6. I don’t think your husband would have any problems on sun decks. I go anywhere with mine and just stay on scooter or sit in chair with scooter right next to it.Have a great cruise! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  7. So sad..... You can look up Cruise Ship Island Escape on You Tube. Island Escape is the name of the ship after RCI sold her. Last info I found was that she had a different name and was headed to be a refuge ship, or was going to the breakers, but kept having a new life suggested, but not finished. I saw she was still around in 2016. We loved this ship on our four day jaunt out of L.A. in 1995.
