Cruises for mobility impaired seniors

Jump to last reply

We have an elderly family member who is having a hard time with the long New England winters. Work and school schedules make it difficult for us to accompany her on trips during the winter. She uses a cane, so her walking distances are short. She can't manage any of her own luggage, and she drives only off-highway (under 40 mph) and not in busy metro areas. I know she would love to be a FL "snowbird", but we think this would be impossible for her to do alone.

Is there a cruise heading south out of NY or Boston that might be suitable for her? We could drive her up to the port to help with luggage. I know there are tours that operate out of Orlando airport, but I don't know if she would be able to get herself from the plane to the bus alone. I know she mostly just wants to enjoy warmer temperatures, look at the ocean, enjoy a few decent meals and maybe make a friend or two. Some enrichment activities might be good for her too. She would be turned off by a wild party atmosphere and the casinos.

Any ideas?
