I just found this wonderful website. We are recently retired and are planning to go on a cruise with my elderly parents. They have cruised once before, we have never cruised. We are thinking about the Panama Canal. My parents are still mobile, but move slowly and tire easily. They are very opposed to the idea of a wheelchair or a scooter, but we are concerned about them getting around the ship-to meals, etc. Also, we are wondering what the shore excursions would be like for them. Does anyone have any experience with cruising with elderly people and have some advice for us?? Thanks so much!
