I have been on cruises before since I’ve been in a wheelchair and I know I could not get myself around a cruise ship alone. I love doing the shore excursions and I know that I could not do those alone. I used another travel agency that provides a companion agency. They don’t offer a good choice of vacations for people that live on a fixed income like I do. If I book with them, I have to pay the companionion his/her salary and I have to pay for all but their personal spending. If I try this other agency, I could be saving as much as $2000 for the same trip. This other agency does more then cruises, they do bus tours too. With a little help, I can step on/off a bus.
