    just to find out what I may have to expect when I go....? if the ship docks at 12.00 midnight or close to it.....do they sling you off late at night ? if you stay on.....and get off in the morning....how long does it take to get bags and get through customs ? cant be quick surely...and with loads of people prob quite a scrum ?

    So Mitch...this is the last night before you reach Southampton. Anything special going on aboard ? Goodby party's etc....? Have you met any chums who maybe want to be part of your crew on your next sail away .? I hate goodbye's after a holiday etc...but then I suppose once your back in Ye old Blighty things change back to regular day to day living...

    Phew ! Great to hear it's a bit better today. I think you have done pretty well Mitch, not sure I would fair as well but I will try for sure...with the help of the girls on here giving me plenty to think about I have been wading through the Internet checking out up-coming voyages. missing your pics....I expected some super sleuth...shots of the old or not so old ravers, especially as they have Been forced inside riding out the storm.....lol. talking of riding.....nooooo mind out of the gutter people.....I'm off for my riding lesson now. The horses legs can do what I can't(gallop)....once I'm on the nag my legs are obsolete....I just have to learn to adapt my seat and riding posture due to my restrictive leg....getting there tho... have a nice relaxing day Mitch...any passenger dramas unfolding....as per JJ's inference earlier when you set off from Barbados....?

    Hey Mitch...you haven't gone overboard have you....?. you gotta get some party shots and storm shots....lol....I'm intrigued as to how the wheel chair collective are doing in both situations. i saw a weather map of where you are and it didn't look great...??

    So me dancing like Forrest Gump in his Callipers would elevate me to disco King on the Arcadia ?...lol. Sign me up ! I guess you will have to find yourself a spot on that sheltered deck Mitch and catch some rays. Keep that bar tender on his toes as well....

    2torts....a wooden sprung dance floor lol. I wasn't a great dancer years ago, but unlike fine wine, my dancing hasn't got any better with age...lol ! I like the name of the dance venue tho..... Harlequins ! I suppose if I could scrum down with a competent lady dance partner I might be ok.....

    Mitch. How was your evening ? Much going on ? Did you cut some shapes on the dance floor ? If D-Q and myself had been there with you we could have shown the pink rinse brigade our best moves...lol. You with ya knees, me and one good leg both being led around the floor by the Queen of Party...lol. Is there a dance floor anywhere btw.....? be interesting to see an example of the evening scene......or is it all dominos, Bridge, and Backgammon ?

    I have come to terms with disability now.....it was encouraging on this blog to find all you guys. It's. Made me a lot more confident about getting on a cruise....apart from the storm that is.....lol

    D-Q....I think from reading Mitch's posts and now yours...I will definitely think about maybe going for the family type ship like the Aurora. I am also no spring chicken 55 and until fairly recently I did enjoy the benefits of a party atmosphere...albeit an over 45 demographic...but still a party is a party....lol. yeah my sentence about my physicality.....I explained in earlier message, I have a prosthetic leg, which is fairly recent addition...which was difficult to accept first of all. I have accepted it now but I feel somewhat conscious in situations with new people...and generally I feel more at ease with the more mature set...50ish. A lot of younger lads at the club can tend to stare sometimes.. anyway Mitch....how's that rocking and rolling going.....any pics...lol

    I think dancing queen has a valid point Mitch...I guess there won't be many singing sea shanties or rugger songs....although if there are any welshies aboard they will be vibrating the vocal chords...they just can't help emselves...lol....what ever age they are. Be good to get a flavour of what nighttime brings to the ship....are people in the bars etc quite chatty and friendly...? I know it's silly to worry, but I'm just adjusting to travelling alone. I lost a couple of pals a while back, we used to go together, but there are only two of us left and the other mate isn't able to travel right now...so it's on me jack or languish at home.... hey 'D Q'....is it best to go...on say....an adult ship....or one with a less mature feel ? Remember I am a legless....and I feel a younger group may be less accepting...?

    sounds manageable at the moment then.....hope the knees hold out...if it really chops up it'd be good to see a pic then I can really worry meself for my planned trip....

    Very brave Mitch....I think if I was in your boat(so to speak) I would be a tad worried. I guess when you have been through a rough stom you are prepared for it next time....
