Holland America Cruise - 22 Days

holland-america-panama-canal-cruise-destination-banner

Going on a cruise is a wonderful thing. As your ship pulls out from the dock, ever so slowly churning up the water as the bow begins to break waves, you feel your troubles begin to slip away. There’s nothing like having everything taken care of for you, but don’t be fooled; not all cruise lines are the same when it comes to accessibility. The Accessibility Specialists at Travel-for-All are quite particular when it comes to making travel arrangements, but a Holland America Cruise meets and exceeds all of our criteria for a fully accessible vacation.

Holland America Cruise Lines can be wheelchair accessible. Let Travel-for-all arrange everything for you!There’s really no better time than now to take a cruise as it truly is one of the best vacation values for your dollar. You’ll be pampered the entire time you’re on board plus a cruise vacation can be relaxing, revitalizing or exhilarating, the choice is yours to make as you can do as much or as little as you want. There’s something magical about being out on the open sea, cocktail in hand while you lounge by the pool, or sailing along one of the world’s great rivers, as picturesque villages and towns pass you by.

Cruise vacation benefits include cost savings, safety, convenience, and fun. The All-Inclusive lifestyle is easy to get used to, and in no time, you could be poolside sipping an ice-cold, tropical beverage, or exploring the ship, or settling into your stateroom while you meet your cabin attendant and make arrangements to accommodate your travel requirements for the duration of your journey.

Accessibility Specialist Jim Ryan recently took a “dream come true” Panama cruise with his family. Although worried about many things before setting out, Jim had this to say once onboard the ship:

To be totally honest the ship is a dream for me. I am not the only person in an electric mobility aid. There are many people in the 3 wheeled scooters moving around the ship. I am really the only one that I have seen in an electric wheelchair with a condition like mine. In any event the floors are relatively smooth. There are bumps for the joints in the ship every 30 m or so, and I have to slow down for them. Otherwise it works really well.

The Lido deck – the deck with the dining room and outdoor decks and swimming pool – works extremely well. If doors are closed, they are automatic opening with the motion sensor, so I don’t have to touch anything. I can move around easily through all the hallways and aisles on the ship so that is a joy.

The bathroom in particular works extremely well for us. It is a flat entry to a flat shower and we can sit my commode chair in their and shower me in the mornings. My lift moves quite well over the carpet. Read more about Jim’s Panama Dream Cruise.

You don’t have to be Jim Ryan  to fulfill a lifelong travel dream. The Accessibility Specialists at Travel-for-All are ready to help you plan the vacation of your dreams!

“From Vancouver, head down the west coast to sun-soaked Mexico. Up ahead, Guatemala and Costa Rica give way to the Panama Canal where you’ll transfer between two oceans.”

It is thanks to Tarita and her staff that our trip to Newfoundland went so smoothly. At the airport we picked up our rental that had hand controls. The hotel that she helped us choose was awesome. We arrived there close to 1:00 am and the staff helped us unload and get up to our room. The next morning when we went downstairs the scooter that she arranged for was at the front desk. We also went on a Whale and Puffin watching boat trip that accommodated wheelchairs. We also attended a Folk Music Festival that Tarita had checked out to ensure was wheelchair accessible. It was so much fun. Many thanks to “Travel For All” for ensuring that our trip went so smoothly.

This is my Travel Agent!  

I know she understands when you say you have a mobility problem. Don't let that stop you from travelling --but you may have to look for new options.

Tarita had everything planned out for us — taxis, sightseeing, hotels, everything.
We're grateful that I found an agency like Travel for All. We really are, because Tarita understands what traveling with a disability is all about.

Great Choice!  

Tarita-we chose the right resort in PV-The Barcelo was just fine and had a nice flat location--Great as don't you know that I would have a flare and could barely walk. The assistance was great and it turned out to satisfy the needs of a 71-year-old and a 25-year-old. Good choice--thanks

Wonderful Person  

My wife and I have dealt with Tarita long before Travel For All came into existence. Over the years she has responded to all of our concerns and requests with no hesitation and always in a timely manner even though it wasn't always necessary. This lady will go out of her way to ensure you are happy and comfortable with your itinerary. We consider her to be one of our friends and always look forward to talking to her. You cannot ask for a better person to ensure you are well looked after.

Dedicated & available!  

I recently travelled from Australia to Canada with my husband. I am dependent on a motorised wheelchair for mobility. Tarita assisted me in the planning of my travel and was available to me the whole time I was travelling. There were many challenges along the way and we would not have had such a successful enjoyable holiday without the hard work and dedication of Travel for All.

Very helpful  

Tarita has been very helpful in working with me in resolving a travel problem with a company that I did a booking with.  She was followed up numerous times.

Impressed with Can-do attitude  

Tarita impresses me with her "can-do" attitude and the creative way she approaches challenges; for instance, her learning from and using her MS to provide emphatic service to others with disabilities who want to travel.  I haven’t a disability myself but I’m discovering that Tarita uses those same can-do, creative skills in other ways.  She and I are in the exploratory stage of a joint business venture, and her ability to come up with out-the-box ideas leaves me scratching my head, especially considering just how doable they are.  Working with her is opening my eyes more and more to possibilities that I’d never have seen otherwise.  In short, she’s a very smart business person.

Incredible product knowledge  

Tarita really enjoys her work and has as incredible amount of product knowledge....She is a graduate of the Princess Academy and uses these skills to close more sales and increase Princess and Cunard revenue production.  She has wonderful 'people" skills and is a great asset to the travel industry!

Wade Menard   
Highly recommended  

My husband and I have had the immense pleasure and good fortune to have worked with Tarita when planning our family vacations.  Not only is Tarita personable and innovative - she consistently provides top quality service - EVERY SINGLE TIME.  There has not been one instance, in all of the years of working with Tarita that we have not experienced great results and a consistently high level of customer service.  We recommend Tarita without hesitation.

Always willing to go the extra mile  

"Tarita has been looking after our travel plans for at least 15 years, and she is a gem; hardworking, pleasant, efficient and willing to give an honest opinion on what she thinks we would need or like on holiday. She is always ready and willing to sort out and improve on any poor decisions we may have made. Over the years we have come to trust and rely on her advice, and she is always willing to go the extra mile to make sure our holidays are just that, a holiday."

Dedicated & Knowledgeable  

Tarita is a dedicated, knowledgeable Travel Consultant.  Her ability to know what people need and get it for them is awesome.  She has specified training for people travelling with disabilities, I would highly recommend her.

Alana Newton   
Attention to detail!  

Tarita has helped my family and I for some very significant vacation / travel plans. Attention to detail; options provided to make the trip(s) more enjoyable and personable is a strength of Tarita.  I will definitely utilize Tarita's services again and would recommend her and her company to anyone who wants more value and excitement out of their vacation and travel plans.
