You Never Know Who's Watching....

Recently, I woke up to find a very nice and interesting email in my inbox and thought I would share it with you.  I know many of you were part of this group and I think it's great that we had such a positive impact on our fellow cruisers.

Hello Debra!  My name is Arden and I am a psychologist who works with people who have sustained serious injuries in Canada.  Many of my clients have had traumatic amputations.  Quite by chance, I ended up on the same ship as your group was on a few years ago and I was so taken by the idea of cruising as a group that I have shared your information with my clients.  I tell my clients that it was so beautiful to see your group laughing and singing and partying and dancing and swimming and hottubbing and dining and integrating with everyone else on the ship.... Things that some of my clients, especially in their acute stages, wonder if they will ever be able to do again.
Interestingly, my husband lost his finger in a log splitting accident not long before the trip.  Seeing your group living it up had a really good impact on him and helped him with perspective.

What's New and What's Popular 
in the World of Travel

We recently returned from the NY Times Travel Show and the word on the street is people are traveling all over the world in record numbers.  So, what's hot for 2016?  Everyone seems to want info on Iceland and I will research how accessible it is in the coming weeks.  Volunteer Tourism is very popular and is a vacation where you combine visiting a destination with helping others.  In fact, an entire new cruise line is dedicated to doing just this.  Fathom Cruise Lines travels to the Dominican Republic where passengers have an opportunity to work with the local people and help out during their visit.  It is a great way for families to instill the importance of helping others to their children and teens.  Cruising the world continues to be popular on ocean going liners both big and small.  Several new ships are being introduced this year.  RCCL welcomes Anthem of the Seas, Ovation of the Seas and Harmony of the Seas. NCL Escape recently debuted and Carnival Vista and Holland America's Koningsdam will join them shortly.  It's always exciting to sail on a brand new ship and experience all the new innovations.  For those with fairly good mobility, River Boat cruising remains increasingly popular.  If you can get around the vessel without a mobility aid other than a walker, we can help you navigate the ports in order to minimize your walking.  Travel to Alaska and the national parks in the U.S. remains popular.  Remember, an Alaskan cruise is the number one choice for a fully accessible cruise vacation.

We were proud to participate on a panel which addressed the needs of disabled travelers.  It is important that events such as the NY Times Travel Show takes into account the needs of all and the importance for travel to be inclusive.
