Knitting Cruise
Hi Everyone,

I receive a Creative Knitting with Bobbi Matela Newsletter email and today it had this link in it which I thought was really interesting and thought I'd share it with you. I'm sure some of you may already know this but it was new to me.

I wish I had heard about this several months ago. When you need a wheelchair accessible cabin/stateroom, you have to plan/book your cruise at least 12 months ahead of the sailing date. That of course sucks big time, you can't just pick up and go whenever the mood strikes you! What makes it even more difficult is that some able-bodied cruisers, who know the accessible cabins are larger, book these cabins just to get the extra space. This effectively keeps me from being able to go on the cruise vacation I've dreamed of all my life, knitting or otherwise!

Whoops, sorry for going off on a rant. I tend to do this when it comes to travel issues, as I have to micro plan any trips due to the both of us being disabled and in wheelchairs. The AB world rarely has a clue about just how hard it can be to find accessible accommodations at the last minute. Especially when you need to find hotel/motel rooms large enough for 2 disabled people.

Hi Linda,

Don't worry about ranting, that's what we're here for, so you can RANT all you want. I'm so sorry it's so hard for you to book your Dream Vacation, but I read on the Knitting Cruise that they've done this for several years, maybe you can contact them to find out when the next one is and you can tell them about your situation and they can book your room in advance for the next Cruise.

That's a nice ideal, I wish I could plan my life that far in advance, but like everyone else my life is just to unpredictable to make vacation, or any other plans so far into the future. That is why I get so bleeping upset at the entire travel industry, but I'm going to start my own topic, so I don't end up hijacking this one.
