Default leap of faith

I am taking a giant leap of faith here. It is such a good deal on such a great ship and being able to take my girlfriend to Mexico for the first time (aboard a cruiseship, no less) is very exciting for me also. However, I have no one yet to take over my business and only 8 days to find someone. But I am, after all, a cruise-a-holic and if I can afford it I'm cruisin', while still keeping my responsibilities in tact.
The deal was a 7 day cruise, plus all taxes and port, wheelchair accessable cabin (on the Empress deck), air from Vancouver for $1350.00 Can. per person and thats on the Elation. I've wanted so to take my Angie on a Carnival cruise. There not as stuffy as the others we've been on. The weather will be nicer and it will be quite the excursion for her. Although she is wheelchair riden we will she about catching a cab around town or the nearby countryside. Cabo is not a wheelchair friendly port as tendering Angie and her 'Bomb' (nickname for her electric scooter) is an impossibility for some of those little figian to manhandle a 550 lb. tank down to their tender boat.
If you could tell me about some of the cab rides in on the other stops I would appreciate it.
We will be leaving the 28th of this month from L.A.

Good for you Beerman! Like I said before...life is too short. I'm glad you are "going for it"! Have a great time. Everything with work will work out fine.

Have a great time on the ship. Make sure to post a review. We are thinking about going on the Elation for our next cruise and would love to know what you thought of the ship and the iteneray. I would also be interested in knowing how handicap accessible the ship is. My aunt is dying to go on another cruise but isn't sure how well she will be able to manuver on the ship. If you think it was good and easy we will see if she wants to come along with us.

Michelle, before I go on the cruise I will tell you they are fantasticly well equipped.
I have cruised on a dozen ships and all were totally accessible. The ports in Mexico, of course, are a different story because it is a third world country. Ships I cruised on 10 years ago were great for the handicapped and the newer ones even better.

How I admire you, Beerman, for taking the leap of faith.

Have you conisdered renting/borrowing a lightweight wheel chair for going ashore?

Might be a bit easier than using "The Bomb" ???

Good luck. And Happy Sails.
