My husband uses a scooter but we usually take his portable wheelchair 'on board'. However we have cruised with Celebrity and you will not be alone with your scooter. Even with a standard cabin the doorways and corridors are wide enough to ride through easily. The staff are very helpful and usually allocate a seat near the entrance in the dining room so you don't have far to walk. As far as the plane goes, we have friends who take a scooter and they have never experienced any problem providing you contact the customer services at the airline and advise the make, weight and dimensions. I hope this of help, enjoy your cruise.

I travelled the Baltic on Jewel of the seas and used my own portable scooter. I went all over the ship in it and they found a place for me to park the scooter by the side of the lift, but better still I parked it just outside the cabin door and took the battery inside the cabin to charge it overnight. I would advise you to take the scooter on coach trips with you and inform the ship officers that it collapses to a smaller unit than a folded wheel chair. Amanda H. Pampli.

It seems to me these days that people spend so much time moaning and whingeing about this and that, nothing works like it should and nothing is ever good enough, I thought it nice to share the thoughts of this refreshingly positive chap recently stranded on the NCL Star out in Australia.Francis Lahue and his wife were passengers of the Norwegian Star as it faced engine problems last Friday morning after leaving port. The luxury cruise ship was forced to bob without direction 30km off the coas...

So this week marks the Japan week promoting various different cruise lines that are incorporating a stay and cruise, with new 2018 itineraries now in place.So why is Japan a top destination in 2017 – Here’s what my colleague Holly had to say.“Japan had proved to be a top destination for 2017 and is already in demand for 2018 so why is this the case?
