  1. We are on the November 7th cruise. We are anxious to hear about the embarkation process. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences. We have done this cruise several times. Hope you enjoy Mexico. Have a great vacation. Don't spend all your time working on live reviews...
  2. We are about to sail on our 16th NCL cruise. We have sailed on many of the ships in their fleet and have not had an issue with any of them. I’m not sure I would sail on the Sun or the Sky but that’s just because of size and age of those two ships. Take the plunge and book a cruise on NCL. You’ll be happy that you did…
  3. We always purchase our insurance through a company that our TA suggests. It's considerably more expensive than what the cruise lines insurance companies charge but the peace of mind makes it worth it. Our coverage is top notch...
  4. Some good advice/tips provided. I use a scooter instead of a wheelchair and have experienced some very rude people. On the other hand, I have seen LOTS of very polite and courteous folks. Enjoy your cruise...
  5. We are new to river cruising but not to big ship cruising. We completed our 21st cruise a couple years ago. It is beginning to look like it will be several months before the larger lines will start back up--if at all in 2021. That is the reason we are thinking about a river cruise with ACS. I think we are looking at a Nashville to Memphis itinerary cruise in August on the Jazz. Having never taken a river cruise, we don't know what to expect. Teresia and I are hoping that some of you folks can give us some first hand accounts of your experiences with ACS. I think that one of our biggest fears is not having as many activities as the larger ships do. I guess the cruise experience is much different on a river cruise. That being said, my mobility is getting worse and big ships are becoming more of a challenge. I do use a collapsible travel scooter part of the time but I don't believe that would be an issue on the Jazz---but I don't know. We would appreciate some insight into your experiences and recommendations on making the best of our cruise... Ray & Teresia
  6. Thanks to all that responded. I appreciate everyone taking the time to post. I guess my reason for asking the question is wanting some idea as to whether ACL is going to have the same issues facing the larger cruise lines when it comes to resuming their operations this year. Lately I have heard that ACL was cancelling a few of their early March sailings and I am just trying to get an idea as to what the rest of the season looks like for ACL. Hope to see you all on a cruise sometime this year!!
  7. This may be a stupid question but does any one know if American Cruise line is subject to the same CDC rules that the big cruise lines are following? I thought I heard or read that because of the size of the ships and number of passengers onboard they were not under the same protocols. Anybody have knowledge of such a thing? Perhaps I was having another senior moment...
  8. We have sailed 21 times and discovered we had collected stuff from 17 of those cruises. We have put all of the cruise related paper in 1 1/2" binders for each cruise. They are displayed in one of our bookcases, sorted by date and destination of each cruise. It's fun to go back and remanence...
  9. Thanks to all that responded. It's been about 10 years since we last sailed with Princess. Our loyalty has been with NCL but their Haven prices have gone through the roof. We love the Haven but no suites/perks are worth that much. I thought we would go back and try Princess again. Knowing what decks have the largest balconies helps a lot....Thanks
  10. We are considering booking a Penthouse suite on the Royal Princess. I know that not all balconies are the same in size. Does anyone know which decks have the larger aft balconies?
  11. Thanks for the kind words. I think the Pride Go Go is one of the more popular brands/style scooters. I hope your dh enjoys the scooter and it helps both of you enjoy your travels.
  12. First of all, I would definitely contact the airlines. Each airline has their own protocol for mobility scooters. If you call them in advance it will save you time at the airport check in. I have flown 5 times with my RV Rider and have never been asked to remove the battery. As long as the battery is non-spillable (which EV Riders are) there should be no issues. I just bought the latest model from EV Rider and my battery has the same specs as yours and it is TSA approved. I'm not flying again until May, but I am not anticipating any problems.
  13. Pat--I hope by now you have received your scooter and you are happy with it. I just mail ordered my 2nd EV Rider scooter. It was delivered yesterday and I used it for the first time today. It is just a little bit smaller but also weighs less than my first one. Let us know what you think.
  14. So sorry for the delay in answering your question. I guess it was another senior moment on my part. I don't believe that any of the EV Rider foldable scooters have armrests. I thought it was a bit awkward at first not having armrests but I got used to it and it has not caused me any comfort issues. It actually give me more room get on and off the scooter. I understand your concern about damage to the scooter while being stowed in the baggage compartment. I have flown 5 times with the scooter and have not had any damage to the scooter...….Hope this helps.
  15. I am 6’1” and weigh about 210. I have a ev Rider auto fold+ 4 wheel scooter. The scooter has an adjustable tiller which allows the handle bars to either raise or lower the height. I have been very happy with mine.
