Neil and Ida Down - Answered a Question by Blair (01 May 08 15:41)

Go for the newer ships and you will be fine particularly if you ask and get a specially adapted cabin for disabled people. Also don't be afraid to fly to your destination as airlines are very helpful with wheelchair passengers if you let them know in advance as well children. regards ....Nei.

Where did that come from? Surely a question like that deserves a little more than the applied invective. I am willing to stand my ground on any topic and if proved wrong apologise, are you? ....Neil.

Yes airports do help but Oh my god the waits are even worse for disabled more often than not and any delays are a nightmare. Go from Southampton, dover or Harwich. Park car, walk on ship ! Keep to a smaller ship 70,000 tons as the bigger ones 2 - 3,000 passengers, can be overwhelming and exhausting to get around even for the able ! I reccomend P&O (Oceana and Oriana) and Princess, because of the trained childrens staff (she will love it)and the ambience. Sea Princess is a lovely ship and as it deals in dollars on board it is great with the exchange rat at present. Just make sure you make your needs clear when you book and all will be well - enjoy .

Yes, I can recommend P & O too - I would be reluctant to fly again as it is SO simple to embark from Southampton. Their ships are fab for young children (mine love the clubs!) and there are always loads of wheelchair users on board. The staff always seem to be very helpful to passengers with mobility problems too.

Mysterious Myth or Superstitio...

By Alana Mills

Ahoy there!Sailors over the years have had many superstitions that they believed in. It is no wonder if you think about it as they navigated around the world with no satellites or ship to shore in-case of an emergency. Also, bear in mind as going to sea is one of the worlds oldest occupations, the time these myths were established, it is only natural that where inexplicable events have occurred, superstition and myth have played a major role in providing reasons for their occurrence.So here ...

My first Transatlantic.

By Steve Fuller

Steve Fuller's blog

I’ve just returned from my first transatlantic cruise. I’ve always wanted to sail into the U.S.A and fly home. To say I’ve been and seen my friends across the pond without flying. I have to say i did really enjoy it. I very much liked the ship. There were a couple of hiccups and if I’m honest I probably wouldn’t do a transatlantic again but I’ve ticked it off. Thais why you have a bucket list to do what you want to do and tick it off the list.It had been 10...

Naples a great port to visit

By Shirley McCue

Shirley McCue's blog

 I remember my experience of returning to Naples as a cruise passenger with fond memories. Most passengers were eager to scramble into coaches that would whisk them away to see the fascinating ruins of Pompeii or drive down to the winding roads of the Amalfi coast on their journey to Sorrento. This was not my plan as I wanted my family to experience some of my childhood memories. Naples is a large city steeped in history with lots of hidden treasures, some a little too far to venture to ...
