    I've done more than 50 flights with my Pride Go Go Sport and I've never, ever contacted the airline to get approval for my scooter.  I've never been denied boarding and my batteries have not been taken away.  Maybe it's a Canadian thing?


    OP, just make sure you have gel batteries and you won't have a problem.


    You can rent a scooter in one city and have it picked up in another.  When we cruised the Med in May, they brought the scooter to the ship in Rome and they picked it up 24 days later in Barcelona.  We used Scootaround for the rental.  


    If you bring your own scooter, they will allow you to ride it to the plane's door and the baggage handlers will put it in the luggage hold.  It's better if you fold the tiller down as it makes it easier to carry the scooter down the steps.  


    So, you  never have to take the scooter apart at the gate? Just fold the tiller? The go go sport is the one I am considering but wasn't sure about getting to a plane with it.

    Re cabin doors - it all depends on the ship, however, if you want to not collapse it, you can shorten the   Steering arm and turn sideways, or collapse it and lift inside. Not a problem.

    yes, unless the grass is wet, it goes ok on grass

    Thank you for the reply. So one would need to physically stand and lift it through some cabin doors? If so, that is not going to be feasible in my husband's situation if I were not with him.


  3. I don't even see how this is avoidable in some cases. The overnight cruise stops in Havana leave at something like 6:00 a.m. so how would you even change your Cuban bills back to US dollars if there is no exchange open?

  4. I'll be going on this cruise in September. For those of you that were in Havana on a Monday, did you find things were closed? I've read that the market is not open on Mondays, nor the Art pub. Anyone been to the Cabaret Las Vegas drag show. Kind of guessing that won't be going on on a Monday night either?

  5. Haven't been yet but look into strawberry tours. They operate on a "tip as you see fit" amount and they have great reviews. It's what I plan on doing for my September trip. Or...you can always ditch the family and do what YOU want to do, lol.


  6. Was on the Conquest end of June/early July. Plenty of entertainment to be found, in fact, we spent several times running from one to catch the next in a different area of the ship. If they still have the same two female production show singers from my cruise, you will be completely wowed. Can't remember the last time I heard such phenomenal singing and I really couldn't decide which of the two had a better voice. I thought is so odd that Carnival would put two such talented singers on the same ship.

  7. Just rented the 6 seater from them last week. Nice guy. Had a bit of trouble locating him as first. We went right to the golf cart area outside the gates and he was somewhere inside. No matter, we finally caught up with him and he gave us a map and some details about where to go. Note: golf cart would backfire sometimes when we turned it off so just stay away from the horses up by the lighthouse. We spooked a few that were tied:(

  8. Okay, in case anyone else should have this issue here is my resolution. Called the Carnival 800 number and they told me I was supposed to download the photos. Problem is that I have no idea WHERE I was or would have done that. I never got any notice to any of my devices (email, phone) to go ahead and do the download. The rep on the phone did not know where I should have been notified to do the download. Anyway, she was able to resolve the issue by requesting a USB be sent to my home and they will also try and email the photos since it was only 3 of them. Told me it would be 2-3 weeks so we'll see.

  9. So, I ordered one photo from the hub on my phone. No problem, it got downloaded to my pictures on my phone. The last night at like midnight, I ordered 3 more from the ipad at the Pixels location on the ship but never got them. I don't recall answering any questions about where they would be downloaded, I assumed it would go to my phone like the first one but they never came through. Anyone know how this works. Did I order printed copies without knowing? I thought they all would be digital. Never got any email either with them attached or with a link to download. Trying to get in touch with Carnival too but thought I'd ask here as well.

  10. That would be some feat if you got all that done in one day! Anyway, if you want to save some money, Pompeii is easily doable on your own. Take a taxi from the port to the main train station, take the Circumvesuviana train on the lower level of the station directly to Pompeii where you can walk to the entrance. I do recommend getting a guide for Pompeii (easily obtained once there as they pretty much accost you) unless you are very familiar with the ruins as it's HUGE and not easy to understand what you are looking at and all of the detailed tidbits that go along with the ruins.


    Sorrento is also on the same train line to Pompeii. It's the last stop, no need to change trains.

  11. We took a taxi and asked the same driver to pick us back up at a designated time. While the zoo was fun, I felt a bit sorry for the small containments for the larger animals. The flamingos and feeding the lorry birds was worth it alone and the employees there were all very pleasant.
