  1. Lovely video...where were the beaches where the kuds were running in and the guys smoking cigars?....i am going with a family group in dec and looking for for places like that...
  2. If the hallway isnt wide enough there is not space to turn into the doorway...if you go with a reg cabin try to get one in a hallway that includes hc cabins...
  3. Look up tours with ellis on fb...awesome tour guide who will tailor the day to what you want...
  4. Ellis is the best tour we have ever taken anywhere....we spent a whole day and evening as he took us to farado for the bio-luminescence tour,waited for us and drove us back to sju to our hotel...he set up a fab hike for my husband who didnt stop smiling all day....we visited friends living a simple life in the jungle...i think he has numerous ideas and puts a distinctive day together for folks...could not recommend him highly enough...this was 3 years ago and his vehicle was a comfy suv holding 4 passengers...be sure to communicare what your preferences are and you'll be lucky to meet such a kind and knowledgeable man...
  5. Try to confirm an hc cabin....while the smallest scooter will fit through the door i could not get mine to swing into the doorway as the hallway was too narrow...i was just visiting this cabin but its a good thing i didnt book it assuming the scooter would actually go in...the hallways with hc cabins are wider...this was the regal princess....loved the ship and the hc balcony cabin was very nice and spacious...i hope your recovery continues well...
  6. Possibly you might get a positive response but if you dont have ins that will cover this you may be out your deposit....im not a frequent carnival cruiser so others can tell you...i just wanted to wish you and your husband a full and speedy recovery....i am receiving treatment into infinity and know how much you desire life to get back to "normal"...
  7. If this happens to you again please think twice about going into the bathroom without someone with you...a member of my family was alone outdoors and nearly died as she crawled to the side of the road for help after being stung by something...she was just darn lucky...had you collapsed it might have taken too long for you to be discovered....
  8. πŸ‡§πŸ‡² BERMUDA...any day of the week!
  9. I have used an adapter with no problem...might gave been beginners luck...
  10. Im following several generations of my tribe to carnival....stt,sju,amber cove and gt...no stairs into the ship pools so i will do those at 2 or 3 of the stops...going to stj on the ferry from stt......only planning to take the scooter off at gt unless they come up with a golf cart or something...i have used a scooter on several cruises but do not like the bumps on the gangway or having to dodge people getting on...easy to feel invisible on a scooter....once my husband was ready to call security as it took me an hr to get back from the muster station...
  11. And on an ncl ship i could have backed out of an elevator and down a flight of stairs!...you really have to pay attention to your surroundings..
  12. I went to visit an interior cabin where the hallway was not wide enough to turn into the cabin tho it theoretically should have fit..if you know you can fit the scooter in your cabin and dont need an hc be sure you pick a cabin in the same hallway as an hc so the hallway will be wide enough...
  13. After i booked specialneeds for carnival this week i was informed i had to pick up the scooter before entering the terimal...now im pretty good with a scooter in a supermarket but dont use one otherwise...could not see myself safely navigating the terminal and gangway so cancelled and booked with scootaround...would rather pick it up in the cabin...
  14. 180 degree view and it doesn't get dark til so late there is always something to see!....it was our first aft assigned at the last minute and our family members were jealous....whole family switched to afts and continue years later.
  15. In 1959 my parents cruised to bermuda on a cunard ship...we were able to walk around the ship....see their cabin...get a shirley temple from the steward who was dressed like a bell boy...waved from the nyc harbor while the band played and streamers abounded....it was so awesome for this 10yo farm girl...my mother brought back menus with silk flowers and bows on them....i was enchanted...now im just glad they dont allow tank tops for formal night!πŸ˜€
  16. Credit cards often give travel benefits in all that fine print they send to you...a call may be helpful...medivac ins is not terribly expensive in the is....at least make sure you have that...my family is lucky enough to own one of those thousand islands on the canadian side...serendipity isle...
  17. I dont have anything profound to contribute...i have mobility problems and in cancer treatment...i am proficient using a scooter but i sure wish carnival put some STAIRS into their pools...all the other major lines have at least one pool with access i can use...traveling with multigeneration family this year so they picked the line and ship...surprising that even the newer ships dont gave them...we are doing the breeze...
  18. Going to the baths from stt is going to be a lot of travel time and very little time at the baths....there is a climb down that can be uneven....i have ra and replaced knees and your age and would not do it...you can swim in if you go by boat....maybe save it for when tortola is a port....much less transpotation involved...have a lovely trip!
  19. You picked a great destination for your first cruise...staying in bermuda for a while is so different then a new island at every stop...take the boat to st georges and go to tobacco bay....there is a bar with tasty food and delicious hibiscus tea...it is shallow aways out and then you can snorkel along the rocks...great rock formations...one of my favorite places in over 20 years of cruising...take a cab back to the swizzle inn and have bemuda chowder and an awesome fish sandwich with your rum drink....way better than most of the food on the ship... twice a local has offered us a ride from the beach to the swizzle..maybe you'll get lucky!..have a wonderful time...give your wife 2 weekends so she has time to shop!...we only take carryon but the first few times you will over pack...
  20. For years we handed ours over until my sister saw bags disappear into the water as they were boarding...letting that scenario complete itself in my imagination and no way was i taking that chance ....we only pack carryon and a medical bag and try not to have anything we dont really need...
  21. Years ago my mom brought 19 of us to alaska...each"kid" and their family took a day pushing her wherever she wanted to go...it was great to spend time alone with her and for the grandchildren to have her attention...we were all expected to attend dinner together....it was a great trip and brought her so much pleasure...
  22. I tried to visit a regular cabin with a scooter and the hall was too narrow to turn into the cabin....i would suggest getting help booking a cabin in the same hallway near ab hc cabin as it will be wider giving you a chance to get into a regular cabin....i was in an ov hc cabin on ncl and the reg sized scooter was a nightmare to store...
  23. I dont do any of them...back in the day a travel agent was asking me a lot of questions to help narrow down line and cabin choice...she got a little huffy and frustrated asking me....WELL if you dont drink,dont dance,dont gamble and dont use a gym just why are you taking a cuise?....i told her it was all about the blue water and fish...other than that im not fussy...that was 25 years ago....im a little pickier now due to medical stuff but still dont do any of the activities...
  24. I traveled in the caribbean for a few weeks and was reminded by my pulmonologist to also record the settings for my cpap in case i was separated from it and needed medical attention...i had never thought of that and could not have come up with that info off the top of my head...
  25. Best laugh of the day....saying due to upgrades of the menus....are you kidding me?...the food was so much better years ago....we rarely bother with the mdr anymore on any line as it is just adequate most of the time...certainly would not pay for a second entree...
