    Too new to crusing to say
  1. My husband has only one lung (surgery for lung cancer) and problems with his joints after chemotherapy so cannot stand for long periods or walk very far without resting but does not need a disabled cabin as he can shower in a normal shower or use a bath with shower over. He uses a Travelscoot (which we first saw on a CC forum and then imported from the U.S.) to get around on land but does not use it on board as he uses a shooting stick which has a seat on it. We wanted to go on a P&O cruise from the U.K. but were told we had to book a disabled cabin or a suite if he wished to take the scooter with him. We cannot afford a suite and he does not want to take the use of a disabled cabin away from someone who needs it - therefore no cruise with P&O. We have sailed with Celebrity where there was no problem but they have limited cruises commencing in the U.K. So this year no cruise.
  2. I'm not sure how long before your visit you have but we have attended the Ceremony of the Keys at the Tower of London. You have to apply for tickets beforehand and give certain information for security purposes but it is worth it. This ceremony has been going on for hundreds of years and didn't even stop during WW11 (in fact a bomb dropped nearby knocking over the Yeoman Warders - they apologised to King George VI for being late but the ceremony went ahead!). It is the "locking of the Tower" and occurs in the evening after the Tower has closed to the general public. The information is on the internet.
  3. Thanks - new to Cruise Critics so still finding my way around
  4. Friends cruised on the Summit about 3 years ago and loved it - we are booked to cruise next year round the Med but have read some comments that it is getting a bit tatty. Has anyone travelled on it recently?
