My hubby and I are both disabled and going on our first cruise to Hawaii via NCL on March 22. My mom is payingfor it, clothes and all. We'll pay for any tours we go on. I see that the tours we want to go on are wheelchair accessible. My hubby has a lung disease, which has caused him to have 50% lung capacity, so it's been hard for him to push me in my manual w/c. I am getting a Power Chair, but just this evening, on NCL's site, that I can't bring it, as it doesn't collapse like my manual does. Will all the tenders at each port in Hawaii carry me on and off the tenders? I can walk a little with my walker at home and down my ramp to our van and use a step stool to get into the van with not too much help. I'm bringing my new collapsible cane with me just in case. Any suggestions? My mobility problems are caused from major and chronic bone spurs from 3 falls and a broken back sustained in '79. Ski accident in '77 and a fall off a UHaul truck landing on the wing nut of the tow bar that towed Bob's car to our move to Sandy, Utah in '81. We live in Washington now and have the past 18 1/2 years to Bob's home town. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.
