Independence in the Chesapeake
"Since my room was only two doors from the lounge, and I had my door open to do the internet, I could hear the music in my room.The waiters in the dining room did their best to remember what you wanted to drink and you could order something that wasn't on the menu (one man asked for a PB&J sandwich for lunch) if nothing appealed to you...."Read More

Background Information: I picked this cruise because I had a hip replacement and I wanted to test out whether I could travel independently. I use a mobility scooter or alternately a heavy duty walker which enables me to sit on it when I am tired, because I still cannot walk very far.

It was easy to meet our fellow passengers during the nightly cocktail/social hour and quickly found some couples with whom we 'clicked'.
