  1. Like a previous poster I find that, paradoxically, having a scooter/powerchair enables me to be more independent, not less. Mine means that OH and I can both go off and do what we want, without having to wait for/worry about the other. If I'm tired, I can change my plans at short notice without disturbing anyone else. It really has made my cruises even more enjoyable, and I hope it does the same for the OP's MIL 🙂
  2. I don't know what kind of thing you are looking for, Beales in Bournemouth have a special on 'prom dresses' at the moment.
  3. I really hope you eventually get your belongings back. That luggage would have a story to tell if only it could talk!
  4. We are on this cruise too. I hadn't even thought to look at the excursion yet - thanks for the 'heads up' OP (have you joined the rollcall yet?)! 🙂
  5. I'm so sorry to hear this. My thoughts are with the family and friends of the person who was lost.
  6. It would take something special for me to book with Fred. Olsen again but I can't say 'never'.
  7. Everything in Norway is expensive!
  8. This is what worries me. What starts as a way to make life a little easier would soon become a restriction.
  9. That's interesting - I cruise out of Southampton and have never seen this happen, on any line I have been on!
  10. My heart would sink if I saw we were put on a table with children but I would probably give it one night to see if the situation was tolerable (to me). I do agree though that many teenagers can hold a very interesting conversation.
  11. We enjoy Freedom (except for Christmas cruises where it is nice to get to know our tablemates before the big day) but I do think it will be a shame if people who enjoy Club dining no longer have that option.
  12. Along with the points already made, I fear it would be a short step from reserving one lift for the use of people with mobility problems to saying that such people can only use that lift. This would, IMHO, cause more inconvenience rather than less.
  13. You could be right but I am interested to hear from people who have tried them. Bonine has not worked for me.
  14. As another poster has mentioned, there is a mandatory 'muster' (emergency stations) drill before the ship sails, so there is no point trying to find a good vantage point for sailaway before this has happened. The queues for lifts directly after muster are probably about the worst you will see at any time in the cruise, so it might be better to get comfortable and let the crowd thin out if you are able to do so.
  15. I use the seasickness patches and tolerate them quite well, except for a terribly dry mouth. I would gladly try something that prevented seasickness without having to resort to string medication. Accupressure bands etc do not work for me so I will be very interested to hear how people get on with these.
