I am semi-handicapped in that I cannot walk for more than 200 feet without severe pain in my lower back and I cannot stand in one place for more than 5 minutes without the same problem, therefore, I use a light-weight, folding wheelchair. I can get on to, off of, in to and out of anything.
1. Are there paved walkways to the sites and areas of the island... don't think the
old wheelchair will be sand friendly in regards to being pushed through sand.
2. What do you do with your belongings while you are in the water or on shore
excursions such as snorkling or parasailing?
3. Are there lockers available? How much do they cost? Does each person need
their own locker or are they family size?
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Taking daughter to Bahamas as college graduation present. Only 3 nights on Sovereign of the Seas.
Hi Joyce,there are special wheelchair in Coco Cay that goes in the sand because of big wheel but you have to be push. I've been on this ship 4 times,after I went on her inaugural cruise in January 1988 as Roslyn Carter was the godmother.Have a nice cruise.
You will have to use a sand wheelchair that has oversized plastic wheels. They are available onshore, but on a first-come, first-served basis. Someone will have to push you, and it should be someone you're cruising with. I don't know if you can reserve them in advance, as there aren't very many available.
Hi Joyce, I understand exactly how you feel because I am going thru the same constant pain now due to being rear ended for the 2nd time about a year ago. I assume it's a disc problem that you have. Can your doctor prescribe something that might give you some relief for this short cruise so you can enjoy it with your daughter ? Also there are some new things on the market for back support that can give you some relief when you fly ? Hope you have a great cruise and you can find some relief from the pain
