  1. I found out that the Pride GoGo Sport is what the Scootaround store rents out- it’s a 3-wheel Scooter, with a 21” base , holds 325 lbs and can be disassembled . I’m now off to research what size Balcony-cabin will fit that scooter
  2. Thank you again ! I left messages with both companies. I’ve never booked this far out, but have a feeling that this cruise will be planned and booked before the end of the year. If I hadn’t seen a fellow cruiser last year reassemble their scooter in the hallways - and maybe it was an electric wheelchair ? , I wouldn’t have given it an extra thought to check what was available.
  3. Thank you so much for the great information presented. Ideally, I would like to get the scooter when we arrive a few days ahead of time, so we can enjoy the home Port. I’ll call both companies to get an idea of what types of scooters they have & if any are collapsible for a larger person. I’ve been checking out cruises in Late 2022 through 2023 and most, if not all, accessible rooms are not available. My next step is to start making some calls in the next week to get the process started. thanks again ! Lyannea
  4. What hasn’t been addressed is whether a scooter user still has their driver’s license & why not ? A good friend used a Walmart scooter as we were shopping & kept on hitting things on the right- when I asked her about it, she said her eyesight was bad & that’s why her license wasn’t renewed
  5. That’s good news I just looked at them online and will definitely research more about them
  6. Thank you ! I’ve been looking At accessible cabins & many aren’t even available. I’ll most likely have to call the cruise line instead of booking online .
  7. I have 2 questions I’ve promised my BFF a cruise for her 70th birthday & will be renting her a scooter, as she can’t walk too far. is there a weight limit ? second question: I’ve seen a fellow cruiser assembling their scooter in the hallway- attaching the back on to the base- I wish I had asked about it and, if that would open up what cabins we could get into Thank you !

  8. You can find U-Tube videos of their cruises
  9. I read that the likelihood of catching COVID19 from someone else is related to the amount of time one spends with them. As in over 30 minutes. That’s why thousands of cashiers at grocery stores are not all infected. I hope that cruise lines change the way we board- having hundreds in one room for a long period of time may be a recipe for disaster. i was reading a trip review on CC from someone who was on Costa recently and they had the drill shown on their TV and then their room key swiped at a specific location. I’m also thinking that pool covers
  10. Though these were videos, I did a screenshot of this week’s cruise in the Mediterranean
  11. The original link didn’t work as it was a video posted on Facepalm, by a passenger on MSC , showing dancing pax and crew on deck all wearing masks. It still looked like a lot of fun- i’m waiting for some U-tube videos to come out Personally, I thought I wouldn’t cruise if masks were required but, after seeing all the fun, I’ve changed my mind
  12. Not Carnival but people are cruising- with masks https://www.*****/seifandiMSCse/permalink/2610599712536741/
  13. I hate to admit it, but throughout the drill, I was strategizing on the quickest way to exit the room, and . It.Never.Worked.
  14. I’ll miss the staff on the Inspiration and Imagination- some had stayed with the same ship for many years. I’ll miss flying into Long Beach from Seattle too & do some shopping the day before the trip I finally found a nice AirB&B too this past February before a relaxing 4-day trip on the -Inspiration - did the Chef’s table and had a marvelous time- the staff too-notch.
  15. I was in the same boat - I made an appointment with homeland security (go online today to set the appointment- it took me 6wks for the first opening) During the appointment, they gave me a letter stamped, saying that I could travel for the next 6 months out of the country with my old card and the letter. I also brought my birth certificate along, as per their suggestion and had no problems.
