  1. Reminds me of the time we spent 12 days in SoCal (we live on the East coast)on vacation many years ago -- my oldest DD has epilepsy, & takes multiple medications for it. Now, I always bring extra meds when we travel -- don't want to get stuck somewhere with an insufficient supply -- but DH still insists I went overboard. I had a 6 week supply of her meds, split into 2 week supplies in 3 different carry-on bags -- plus a copy of her Rx's, just in case..... When we cruise, I always have enough for the cruise, plus an extra week's worth. I'll put a 1 week's supply in her weekly medication holder that's in one bag (mine that I'm carrying), and the remainder in whichever carryon is assigned as our medical supply bag. Good thing she's in a wheelchair, as we can then hang the extra bags off of it
  2. I must have lucked out, mine was $20 on my January 2019 Anthem cruise. I just made sure to eat a light breakfast, & DD joined me at the end to help me eat it for an early lunch
  3. I believe the spicy tuna is either raw or "ceviche" -- but it was very good! Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  4. Belt & Suspenders -- request ahead, then plan on asking onboard. Older DD is disabled, we need a shower stool for her. Requested 3 times, only in room once, but got it before dinner the first night after s/w room steward for the others. Younger DD is celiac/gluten free diet -- marked in reservation, still have the conversations with waiter/headwaiter in MDR. Sad on the first day of 1 cruise, b/c she wanted the mushroom soup which was marked GF, but unfortunately our waiter had to come back & tell us it was not. Luckily for us it's not more severe than that, but we always try ahead anyway....
  5. I was on Anthem in January and saw signs in the Theater "For Key Members Only" outside 1 seating area, so I would say that it is.
  6. Similar situation -- a few years ago, my older brother ended up in the hospital the day after our mother left on a weeklong trip to Aruba. He had passed out at work, and the only reason he called me is that he needed someone to take care of his dog! Our sister was also away, visiting her son at college. Upshot was, he ended up needing a quadruple bypass and internal defibrillator installed. I called my sister while she was away, because at that point I did not want to be the only one that knew about it but we decided not to call our mom -- for one thing, there was only one flight a day out of Aruba, and there was terrible weather where we lived (NY area), so there was no guarantee that she would be able to get home sooner than she had planned anyway. Weirdly, it happened the day before the anniversary of our father's death, also from cardiac issues, and my brother was only a year younger than Dad had been at the time of his death -- and Mom swore she had felt wrong that whole day
  7. No, the person not buying the deluxe must get the refreshment package, which is $20-26 / day. It includes everything EXCEPT the alcohol. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Forums mobile app
  8. Are the smoothies included in the deluxe package? Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Forums mobile app
  9. Thanks!! I'm going in January, these are all great tips.
  10. Can the person get out of the chair & climb a free steps? They have a golf cart to bring you most of the way, & a beach wheelchair for over sand, to get to the cabanas, but you do have to climb a couple of steps in. I believe the bungalow is just slightly elevated, so you might be able to wheel them up by elevating the front wheels. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Forums mobile app
  11. Unfortunately,as DH has no trouble walking, or pushing the wheelchair, it didn't occur to him that it was a problem, or think it was that far, and I didn't realize it till we were there for dinner. Will definitely be making the request on our next cruise! Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Forums mobile app
  12. DD said the same thing, since she can't have JR milkshakes -- she has celiac, & they can't guarantee no cross contamination :(
  13. This is VERY good advice -- DD is in a wheelchair for distances (Cerebral Palsy, can walk but slowly, & not safe in crowds) & I was using a cane this past May (severe knee pain, very slow walking). DH went to dining room to see our table, but did NOT tell me it was ALL THE WAY in the rear of the dining room, which made it 1) difficult to push the chair through all the tables, & 2) a longer, UNNECESSARY walk for me :(
  14. If you don't know what a "penny squashing" machine is-- http://www.pennybandz.com/penny-press-machines.html
  15. You could print it out & bring it to the ship with you -- see if they let you board :D:D
