February 2016 - 10 Night Panama Canal Sunfarer (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Zuiderdam
Information for wheelchair guests.
Don't book cabin SS6108 which is advertised to be a handicapped accessible room if you are in a wheelchair 24/7 until it is refurbished. It was not properly equipped for wheelchairs. Shower in bathroom and ramp to veranda had to be worked on in order for them to be used. Room is not laid out properly for a wheelchair guest and room was not in good condition. Bathtub had holes in bottom enclosure and it was advertised to have dual sinks but had only one. Bathroom floor overflowed first time shower was used. We were given towels for us to clean it up!
The front office did recognize problems and did what they could to help us. And we appreciate all that was done for us. This was a 50th wedding anniversary cruise. Traveling through the panama canal locks, seeing it with our eyes and hearing the story of how it was built was a most chilling memorable experience.
