TexasMom2 Posted November 13, 2006 #1 Share Posted November 13, 2006 I tried a search and couldn't come up with anything, so please forgive if this question has been answered already. I'm taking Mom on the Jewel in December for her 65th birthday. I will be in the 6th week of recovery from surgery and Mom has complications from diabetes (nerve damage in feet and legs). I should be fine by then to walk a lot, but it is painful for Mom to walk or stand for long periods. She refuses to use a wheelchair or scooter just yet. I am so pleased with the cabin we were able to get, central to the elevators on deck 7. The few excursions we plan to take won't have much walking or standing involved but will still afford us the ability to see great scenery and get off the ship and have fun. My question concerns boarding at Port Everglades. What is the best time to get to the ship to avoid standing for a long time? Go earlier or later? Check-out time at our hotel is 11:00 a.m. but we could hang out there as long as we need to avoid the crowds. TIA for any help from recent or near future cruisers.
