Cruise World, NCL Encore,
Cruise Planners Convention & Sky Princess
Oh My!!!

It's been incredibly busy traveling back and forth to conferences, conventions and inaugurals on two new ships. Norwegian Cruise Lines Encore and the Sky Princess were both dazzling and offered great food and wonderful entertainment. I always enjoy seeing these amazing ships and being among the first people to sail on them. Accessible cabins on both ships were excellent and provided lots of easy to reach storage space. I was thrilled to try out the new Medallion Class on Princess. They are rolling this out to all their ships in the near future. The little medallion allows you to open your door, order room service or drinks anywhere you are on the ship, see your schedule, reserve dining, etc. Everyone loved it! Very cool!
While attending these conferences, I spend a lot of time speaking with vendors about the importance of making the world accessible to all. Hope they are listening.....

ABILITIES EXPO DALLAS
Was A Huge Success!!!
It was so exciting to have Abilities Expo in my backyard this past weekend. No air flights, no hotel and no shipping of supplies. Dallas proved that this event was needed here. We met so many wonderful people and gave our travel workshop to a packed room. Abilities Expo signed a five year contract with Market Hall so we will be back next year and expect to see many more attendees each year. For those of you that attended, we loved meeting you! Remember, we are happy to present our Travel Talk to your support group or organization.
Here's A Travel Tip For YOU....

Tis the season of travel delays and stress. For those of you traveling in the next 2 weeks, remember to pack patience, a good attitude, a smile and some holiday spirit. We will be traveling as well this coming weekend and I hope to practice what I preach! Be prepared for long lines and make friends with your fellow travelers. If you have a problem, remember to ask to speak to a CRO, Complaint Resolution Officer. If any of your mobility equipment gets damaged, contact Global Repair Group, 847.412.9000. They can assist you.

Happy Holiday Travels!

We Do Individual & Group Travel
vintage postal card - european holidays
Do you know that we actually plan more trips for individuals than we do for our groups? We love when you participate in our groups but please remember to call us when you want to plan a vacation for the two of you or with a group of friends or family members. We can most likely plan any type of vacation you want and we will be sure to address all your accessibility requirements and needs. We so enjoy doing the research for you and look forward to planning that next trip just for you! Also, if you see one of our groups that you would like to do but perhaps the dates don't work, give us a call. We can usually duplicate the same trip just for you and your travel companions.
Need a Scooter?
We can help!
Do you need to rent a scooter or other mobility equipment for your next cruise or land trip?

New Products

We always see many new products when we attend Abilities Expo. Pride Mobility, makers of the popular GoGo Scooters and Jazzy Power Chairs, is constantly coming out with new and improved products. Manufacturers of manual wheelchairs are also working on lighter, sleeker chairs for easier maneuvering. There are lots of wheelchair and walker accessories to make life easier for the user. Several travel shower chairs are available as well as a sling system for transferring an immobile person. We will write more about this product in our January Newsletter.
