  1. Thank you for the replies. Much appreciated. I will contact HAL. (BTW - Hoping that cabin 4107 becomes available because it's view is not blocked as much as 4167).
  2. We need an accessible cabin and the only one available on our ship (Koningsdam) is cabin 4167 that is a balcony cabin with obstructed view (there is a lifeboat). Wondering if we will be able to see anything at all or if the lifeboat blocks everything. I would like to be able to see some of the port area etc. Any info appreciated (I can't find any pictures or info on any sites I checked). Wendy
  3. Great advice - I always forget about checking with Costco and I know they have good rates. I will do that. Thanks for the info. Good to know. I am not familiar with the "cab credit"? How does that work = who do you get it from etc.?
  4. Anyone know if Budget car rental (or any other car rental) is close to the Vancouver port? I would like to rent a car when we disembark for the day. Our flight only leaves at 5:00 p.m. so we have the day to explore. Thanks.
  5. I have also cruised with both HAL and NCL (and a few others) and agree with your assessment of both cruise lines. We do enjoy the varied food offered on NCL and the slant towards Indian foods on some of the NCL ships. With HAL we still like the fact we can order room service with no charge. After a long day touring it is nice to be able to have quick snack in our cabin when we come back hungry and tired. We always enjoy the afternoon tea on HAL (love those scones and cream/jam).
  6. When you dock in Halifax, Nova Scotia there is a huge market area (covered) that is so easy with a scooter. You can also go outside and to the downtown area right beside the ocean. Very easy to do.
  7. Thanks to everyone that replied. I have lots to read and will be able to decide if I can visit all the different towns. They do look beautiful and I look forward to seeing all that I can.
  8. "Skipped the starters and sweets that night" good way to show restraint!!!
  9. I can just imagine the comments on the past posts. I can foresee the prices going up dramatically if people are allowed to order 7 starters and 4 main courses etc. etc. Also the poor waiters having to serve all those plates and the dirty dishes and on and on. I personally to not care to sit with these people and be crowded by their dishes and have poor service because of them taking up all the waiters time. I hope the cruise lines do not permit these people to ruin it for the rest of us!
  10. Cruisemom42: Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to post all the information. I feel so much better prepared to make a decision based on the web sites you attached. I also signed up to receive the newsletter from the accessible tours group. Thank you.
  11. I'd rather be at a table for 2 than be subjected to such boorish behavour. Sitting with a glutton would ruin my appetite.
  12. If I only see the part of Positano that is at the bottom of the hill is it worthwhile? When you say there is a lift to the port what do you mean? Is it a bus or a van or ?? The first part of the tour is to visit Hercalaneum (spelling might be wrong). The tour company said I would be able to see most of it but some parts would not be accessible. Do you know anything about that? I don't want to book the tour and find out that I have to sit on the bus the whole day. My husband could still go but I could stay around the port area. Trying to decide.
  13. I want to join a tour that takes us to Positano and Sorrento and they tell me that Positano is on a hill and that Sorrento has uneven paving. Wondering if I will be able to get around those two places on my mobility scooter without too much problems? I think the van drops us off in Positano near the top of the hill and them meets us at the bottom. I believe it's a pedestrian only street from the top to the bottom? Any info would be appreciated. I don't want to book the tour and then have problems getting around.
  14. I have a small mobility scooter and the tour company are telling me that Positano is on a hill. Do you think I will be able to get from the top of the hill to the bottom on a mobility scooter? (I believe they let us off at the top and then meet us at the bottom so I am concerned about being able to do that)? Also whether I can get around Sorento on my scooter? I was told it's uneven pavement. Not sure if I should sign up for the tour or not? Any info appreciated.
