Carnival Victory

October 2016 - Carnival Victory to Caribbean - Bahamas

Windy and rough, but, hey I wasn't at work :)

In spite of rather high winds and rough seas, we had a blast!  The change to Grand Turk worked well for us as my husband uses a wheelchair,  It was so accessible and we spent a relaxing time at the pool.  Nassau, not so accessible. Heard lots of complaints about the change and the weather, but when you book a cruise in hurricane season, weather happens and Carnival has no control over it.  

 

Really no complaints about the food.  We did pay 20.00 for the surf and turf and had a very good meal.  The lobster tail was so tender!!

 

My only real complaint is the wheelchair accessible balcony cabins are at the front of the ship, about as far away from the elevators as you can get.  Wonder what genius thought of that!

 

Looking forward to our next cruise!!Happy

Enchantment of the Seas

October 2015 - Enchantment of the Seas to Caribbean - Bahamas

Great accessibility!

We decided to celebrate our 40th anniversary with a cruise, not really sure how accessible it would be for a wheelchair.  The ship was very accessible; the only issue was the carpet was very plush and hard for him to push (not in the room, though).  Speaking of the accessible room, it was very spacious, as was the bathroom.  The bed was a little high for transferring easily, so our steward took off the two top pads which helped some.  There was a ramp to use to help get on the balcony.  

 

Service was great, although some bartenders and even some guest service staff seemed, at times a bit indifferent to you.  

 

The food was okay, nothing special.  Had one really awful dinner with seriously dry fish.   Desserts were really good!  The Windjammer had a good variety and most of it was just fine.

 

As far as the shore excursions went, we got off the ship at Nassau and just walked around the straw market area.  Next time, I would see if there was accessible transportation and arrange that ahead of time if we decided to check things out.  I was disappointed to hear from Guest Services that the private island was "just sand" and wasn't accessible unless you want to transfer to a beach wheelchair. I asked if there would be someone to help transfer and they just kind of shrugged.   I would think they could have some areas accessible without having to use the beach chairs. On the plus side, the ship was nearly deserted on private island day and we pretty much had the pool area to ourselves.

 

Overall, our "let's check this out and see if it works for us" cruise was a really good time.  We are planning on doing it again!

 

Almost forgot to mention that if you have a modified vehicle (hand controls, ramp) your parking is free at the terminal.  Savings of $60.00.  It's nice to get a break sometimes.
