Norwegian Epic

November 2016 - Norwegian Epic to Caribbean - Eastern

my cruise experience; Disappointed!

I am handicapped and the bathtub was way too high for my damaged spine, I requested a handicap room when I placed the reservations.the metal strips at the doorways jarred my spine, not mentioning what it did to my undercarriage of my new expensive scooter. I could not go on any of the excursions, There were steps I couldn,'t take even the tours because of my scooter. On your Island I couldn"t go because of the tenure steps and not enough room for people that must be in the shade due to medications on the Island. Many older folk came right back and said I could never make it.

 The drink package was ridiculous.The fact that everyone in the room had to buy it for one person to have it. If I took a drink it would kill me. I have Cir, of the Liver, Diabetic and can not touch a drop of liquor,.Wasn:t fair to my daughter.

 The ones that made our cruise worth wild was Bradley our room attendant and the animals he made on our bed at night. He was kind enough to bring my scooter to me cause there was not room in our room for the scooter. Jr. Chapman head bartender in the adult section, Enjoyed the dueling Pianos. 

 It was too long a Cruise for me to just sit around. I will go back to the 5 day cruise.

 I was terribly upset at the parking fee that we were charged when I had my handicap placket my handicap license plate, my ramp for the scooter. When I called in I was told there would be no charge as long as I had the equipment to get my scooter out of the van. This is our 6 Cruise but I believe it could be the last for Norwegian.

Disney Dream

December 2013 - Disney Dream to Caribbean - Bahamas

Disappointed!

Been on 3 Disney Cruises, this one seemed unorganized. My daughter also a 3x cruiser & I took this cruise as a get-a-way from the family. I am 75 and handicapped. I asked for a handicap room with balcony as always. I requested it and explained I had a scooter.  Couldn't even get my scooter in the room. Bathrooms were very little and the step up and also step in the shower/tub was way too high for me.  On Castaway Island there was all shredded clear plastic along the coastline on the adult beach. They knew we were coming why couldn't that have been cleared away? Never seen anything like that before I got tangled in it and a fine gentleman and his wife seen me struggling so much he had to come help me out of the water. I would go on the Magic again, but not the Dream and the Fantasy ship for the extra money does not interest me. I have traveled the Royal Carb. and Norweign lines before, but always fall back to the Disneyline til now. The food was tastey, but not a big selection as the other cruises we took. This cruise was not at all for a disabled, older person. The seams connecting the floor across the doorways kept catching the undercarriage of my scooter. I've had trouble since. I had to be pushed over each one. Not always does the helpers push the back on the scooter, but my back and was I sore, and shoulders. It was an awful price for parking, handicap $95 at Miami the handicap parking is free. On 3 Cruises my daughter & I never got to a Captain's Dinner. The return Cruisers get a gift, sorry, but a back pack is not for my age.

LoisGroe's Tips

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas - could not even take a tour due to being in a scooter. Nothing for a handicap but spend money. That.s all there was to do, but shop.
Disney Dream Disney Dream - It was too inconvenient to do much with my scooter getting caught in the grooves going threw the doorways. wasn't that organized. Even my neighbors which reserved the whole one level on a different date for a family reunion. They just came back from a B-Day Cruise on another line this time and said
