  1. On our last trip, we had the half day when we arrived and then another full day the next day at McKinley. We didn’t do any excursions. The half day after arriving we walked up to the treehouse built by the Discovery Channel’s Treehouse Masters. There is a path but it is a little challenging if using a chair or scooter. Gene took it very slow and was able to do it. Though I have to say quite frankly you wouldn’t be missing anything if you can’t get to it. I was disappointed with it. We did laundry one day as we had been gone for a week already. We took the full day as a relaxing day.
  2. I take it on the plane. I have a fireproof bag that I purchased on Amazon that I put the battery in. I also take a spare battery in a fireproof bag. I have the information regarding the watts, etc from the battery company that I have laminated and carry in our medical bag. I whip it out when we get the gate check tag from the gate agent. I had one gate agent tell me she wished everyone carried their info like that. It made her job much easier. The only airline I’ve ever had problems with it is Luftansana. Had to get a supervisor but eventually we were allowed to board.
  3. We used Harv and Marv for our whale watching tour. We had the three of us, our two adult grandsons, and two more friends so we were able to split the cost between seven of us. I booked a boat that was just the seven of us, the first mate, and the captain. All of us loved it. Our crew was an all female crew! It was a small boat that was probably at least of full 12-15 inches to step from the dock into the boat. With all of our help along with us, I knew we’d be okay. Our grandsons are both over 6 feet tall so they could basically just lift him onto the boat and off of it. I f
  4. We have a Luggie foldable scooter. We have traveled all over the world with it. You can buy a bag that attaches under the seat. We take our own tote bag and just put it under the seat. My mom used this scooter on a cruise to Hawaii. She had a portable oxygen concentrator that fit nicely under the seat. The Luggie folds easily and weighs about 50 lbs. I put it in and out of the car. My husband drives it to the door of the plane, I take the battery out and fold it down, and leave it for the ramp agent. It is a great little scooter. My husband has carried many many packages with it. I
  5. Hello! We did the 15 day connessiour tour in 2019. My husband uses a scooter full time. The land portion of the tour was FANTASTIC! They were very accommodating for everything we needed. The lodges were very accessible. The tour conductor was amazing. She took care of every little thing we needed. She would come to us on the bus while driving to the next lodge and confirm the accommodations that we needed at the next lodge. She booked us on a separate Tundra tour from the rest of the group so that we could be in one of the lift equipped buses. We were on a handicap rail car between
  6. Can you tell me what you do as a healthcare worker? My niece works at a hospital but not Dr or nurse so wondering if she qualifies. thanks, Kari
  7. I had a FCD on a June cruise. The refund of taxes and FCC to my account were completed about mid July. I kept waiting for my FCD to be put back in my personalizer. I’ve called multiple times and sent a couple of emails. I finally got someone who actually looked into it and informed me that my FCD were included in my FCC. But I was told when I used the FCC on a booking that I could call and get the related OBC added to my booking.
  8. We have stayed in the HC window suite on the Golden and the Caribbean Princess. The sink is not much lower. It just has the area free underneath it so a scooter or wheelchair can drive underneath it. I brush my teeth and don’t have to bend much further, if any, than I do in other cabins. There is fixed handrail on the right side of the toilet and one movable (up and down) on the left side of the toilet. There is a bench seat in the shower that folds up if someone else doesn’t need it. There is two handrails in the shower (if I’m remembering correctly). There is a drain that goes aroun
  9. We did the 15 day connessiour tour last summer to celebrate my 50th birthday. We did 2 nights each in Fairbanks, Denali, McKinley, and Kenai. Originally we were not going to do the connessiour tour because I thought we could do it cheaper by paying for food ourselves. But we had friends who really wanted to do the connessiour, so we switched. After experiencing the trip, it was absolutely the best decision for us. My husband is mobility impaired and our tour director took care of every last detail for us. As we were waiting for our Tundra tour, I mentioned to her that the shower stool in
  10. I had previously requested and had the OBC applied to my Nov 2020 (before it was cancelled) and my February and Dec 2021 cruises. Suddenly one day the Nov and Feb cruises had the shareholder OBC missing, but the Dec 2021 remained. A small part of me made me wondering if those cruises will be cancelled.
  11. We used Alla Tours. We booked a two day tour in St. Petersburg and we had a private lift equipped van with driver and tour guide. There were five in my party. It was absolutely fantastic. It was cheaper per person than Princess Tours. We went everywhere the regular Alla Grand tour did. Happy to answer any questions you may have.
  12. This is a great idea. We just got new apple watches so I think I will buy an additional charger to take with us next month. Thanks for the suggestion.
  13. Mary Kay! Where are you headed??? We are going to Caribbean in Feb and June 2020. I’ll be adding on two perks this weekend for the June cruise. We are doing Panama Canal in 21 and got it added to that one already. Our last one booked right now is on the Discovery in Dec 21 so that one isn’t included. I think this is a great sale!

  14. Rick and Diana We have the Z2 travel cpap. I chose this one because it’s small, runs on batteries or can be plugged in, the battery can be charged in the power shell, and most importantly, for us, was the fact that we could use the mask that we use at home. That way we didn’t have to adjust to a different mask. https://www.apriadirect.com/z2-travel-auto-cpap-machine-by-human-design-medical It is a little different than our home ones so took a little getting used to but we do really like them now that we've got used to them. We bought the Q tube but don’t
  15. WE used Alla Tours in Copenhagen, Helsinki and St. Petersburg. My husband travels with a foldable scooter. In Copenhagen, the van that arrived had a lift on it, but the driver had not taken the seats out so we were not able to use it. That was my only disappointment with the arrangements. I had told them we traveled with a scooter and the driver should have been prepared. After that tour I contacted Alla ahead of our arrival in Helsinki to reconfirm that we would like a van with a lift. There was one waiting for us when we got off the ship. And the same in St. Petersburg. This made our
