Find Your Cruise
I would suggest that if this is how you ask a question (I presume it IS a question!)
you are not a suitable person for a cruise holiday or this forum, where folk are usually pleasant and well mannered.
I don't believe it, another would be moderator of this forum. Can you tell me how you define a "suitable" person for a cruise holiday. Fortunately cruises are not just for the so called "snobs" of this country anymore and may I suggest that with your reply that you fall into the category of being a snob. You're not alone in this forum though, there are another one or two who fit that category.
As for being well mannered or polite, I don't think your reply falls into either category. You should read other posts where two people got "stuck" into a person because he asked a question about wearing a "monkey suit". So may I suggest that you read a question, then read it again before posting stupid comments. I read it once and understood that the person was asking for advice on the best cabin taking into account the specific needs.
I'm not going to bother too much with the insults. Just let me ask you this question:- Would you go into a travel agents and use the exact words that Cohen used? Of course not! So why are they acceptable on here? If having reasonable manners makes me a snob, so be it.
Insults? Seems to me that telling someone you don't know, on the evidence of 13 words, that "you are not a suitable person for a cruise holiday or this forum" is the insult.
This is an unpleasant response that doesn't even bother to try to see what the questioner is asking.
Mr /Mrs Ms Cohen please ignore the pretentious and unwarranted conclusion that you are not suitable to go on a cruise.
If this is your first cruise then rest assured people from all walks of life cruise these days. A few might be unpleasant but the majority simply want to enjoy a worthwhile holiday.
Enjoy your holiday and as Roberts of Chester says contact the cruise line. They will be good mannered and will help you.
Which ship? Island have 2. I would suggest contacting island direct to reserve a cabin or taking a look at the Island website and deck floors where they indicate cabins suitable for disabled access. I doesnt say what your disibility requirements are so hard to answer the question.
We wnt on Island Escape in September booked a balcony on the port side, must say we were dissapointed as these were only constructed in February, you could see were they had cut in from the inside to make the door. If you really want a balcony I would suggest you go for the ones at the stern which I beleive were built for the purpose. I did post photo's on here trying to show balcony. I do hope I have not been too negative for you, trying to be truthful. Enjoyed our holiday with Escape though. I do not know about Island Star. Enjoy what ever you choose.
