We have just returned from a very successful Discovering New Horizons Mexican Riviera cruise. Over 120 Vegas Voyagers had a fantastic time and Princess Cruise Line’s Discovery Princess is a wonderful brand new ship.
We like the ship so much that we are returning to that vessel March 9 – 16 on a Coastal California itinerary. And we will be cruising with the FOLK LEGACY TRIO as we “folk music” our way along the west coast. There is still space available if you want to join us. Call 516-485-3200 for full details.
As our Vegas Voyagers know, our group is primarily “Seniors”. Most are vibrant and very active. We do have a fair number of participants with mobility issues. We encourage, those of you with these issues to bring walkers, wheel chairs or electric scooters with you. We can accommodate these on the bus and they are very helpful during the cruise.
Here is a little trick of the trade. If you have these mobility issues you should seriously consider bringing along your walker, wheel-chair or scooter. The cruise line will not provide these devises for you on the trip.
And while there are wheel chairs to assist you on and off the ship upon embarkation and disembarkation, it could be a while before porters arrive at our bus or in the terminal to help in getting you on the ship. Remember, close to 3,000 passengers are boarding the ship with all their luggage, so passengers with mobility issues can take a while to embark. And, without your own mobility equipment on the ship, there will be no wheel-chairs available for the length of the cruise.
Remember, we do encourage those with mobility issues to cruise with us. However, we strongly recommend that you bring your own mobility equipment and we also urge you to be patient the day of embarkation and the day the cruise ends while we and the port staff assist you in getting on and off the ship. Hope this little travel tip helps.
