On a cruise with Sherry

In 2004 my friend, Sherry, and I took the plunge and went on a cruise to the Bahamas.  Looking back now I must say that it was quite an experience for me, and why?  Because we were accompanied by Carol and Judy, 2 lovely ladies with whom we had never traveled before.  Carol was a travel agent and Judy was her friend.

Our accommodations were what I expected: a small, compact cabin with all of the amenities.  People were very nice to us and the servers in the dining room were very helpful and always willing to be of assistance.

Accessibility in those days was just starting to come into its own so a lot of the time we had to go out of our way to teach others how to help us and to help them understand what we needed and required.

Carol and Judy were great guides.  They described things to us, gave us appropriate assistance, and their sighted-guide techniques were very good. It sure helped that we had taken the time to plan this trip carefully before embarking on it.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advocate, wishing you a terrific day.
