Great news!  Glad it went well! Yes, asking for wheelchair both boarding and disembarking is important - that's a very long walk to get off the ship - and then no benches, etc to grab.  And standing in lines, etc. If you are assisted off, it's quick and easy - usually through luggage pickup, Customs and out to your bus area, pick up waiting point, taxi, etc.  Makes life much easier!  I have a scooter at home and rent one for the ship - and it has completely changed my life. I don't need it in the house as I can walk 10 steps or so, but going to a store, a show, restaurant, etc are impossible.  As much as I hate to admit the age and disability - these aids make life so much more pleasant for BOTH my husband and me!!  I'm glad we have them!!  Keep in touch!


Hi Balboa 79! I just wanted to check with you and see how you're doing. You were so kind last year in giving me advice. Hope you are well - Take care!
