My husband Joe and I were excited to take our 7th cruise on Princess. At 31 days, this was also going to be the longest cruise. We wondered how we would spend that much time on board, would we run out of books - all of those piddly questions one must address.
Joe travels with an electric wheelchair, not a scooter, so it is always a gamble as to what shape the chair will be in when we get our destination. We left San Antonio, flying to Anchorage. We give United airlines a big thumbs up. The chair arrived in the same shape it was when we boarded it. That's a first for us; this was the first time we've flown United. We got into Anchorage at about 9:15 p.m. Always dress for the destination to which you are going. 100 degree weather in San Antonio doesn't follow you to the far north.
The Princess greeters met us efficiently and professionally. As in other Princess embarkations, the ground folks are always surprised that we have confirmed "wheelchair lift" transportation. Everyone was extremely apologetic and after 1 ½ hours sitting in the airport, a van finally arrived.
