Cruiselines that are good to the blind

Have any of you ever been on a cruise? If so, where and on what cruise ship? My boyfriend and i want to go on a cruise this year, I am totally blind for the most part and he has pretty good vision in one eye but I just want to make sure things run smoothly for us so any ideas would be great.

Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



I think that you can do it in Lake Paris, California. That is where I went indoor skydiving. I went in the wind tunnel


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



Where the heck can you do that?


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



I saw something really crazy on tv last night! It was a cross between a skydive and a bungee jump! It is called the Parabungee. I really really want to do it!


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



I know what that is like.


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



Things that gave my mom headaches, warning: Don't give your mom headaches, she'll get you back.


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



What kind of risky stuff did you do as a teenager?


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



Nothing involving roller coasters or physical risk, I mean, i am significantly older so the stupid things i've done as a teen and young adult were pretty risky and like I said, stupid but we live and learn.


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



It is fun to be brave and not have that feeling of fear. What is the most extreme you have ever done?


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



Wow i'm not that brave.


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



Oh, and I forgot to tell you that my mom is thinking of going bungee jumping. She is usually okay after those rides. She hasn't passed out or anything like I did at the fair.


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



Ooh make sure your mom is okay. That's a little scary, I have diabetes so I gotta be careful too.


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



Oh yeah, me and my family love theme parks. My mom is 50 and has high blood pressure, and she wants to go on the fastest roller coaster in the world. It goes 130 miles an hour. It is 456 feet tall! It is called Kingda Ka. It is at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey. I haven't been there yet. The only amusement park I went to out of state was Cedar Point In Sandusky, Ohio. My mom and me rode a roller coaster that goes 120 miles per hour, and it is 420 feet tall! It is called Top Thrill Dragster.


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



Sounds like your fam loves theme parks. I've only been in state and to Enchanted Village in Washington.


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



Yes, he is blind, and no this isn't the one that almost knocked my mom down the stairs. The one that almost knocked my mom down the stairs absolutely loves amusement parks. Ihad to break up with him because I found out that he is an alcoholic, a liar, and not to mention a thief! He got kicked out of his hous for stealing alcohol and marijuana. He is the one that went to the amusement park that time I said that my friend was at the amusement park. He ever called me from the top of a roller coaster just to make me as jealous as possible. He tries to tell me that he's been to more amusement parks than I have, which is hilarious because I have even been out of state to go ride roller coasters. The other boyfriend who is 19 has never even been to Knott's Berry Farm or Six Flags.


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



was he blind? Was he the one that you said almost knocked your mom down some stairs?


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



Yeah, it was crazy. And when we were on the ride, he wouldn't let go of me. He held on to my arm so tight that I lost the circulation and couldn't feel my arm after the ride.


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



What the frigg? That's sad! I've never heard of that happening before.


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



That is very true. My ex boyfriend, who is 19, cried like a baby when I took him on a really great amusement park ride called the Sky Screamer. I will never go to an amusement park with him ever again because he embarrassed me. He made me ride that dumb quarter merry-go-round ride that they have out in front of stores. He made me ride that at the amusement park. It was hilarious when he rode the ride. When I was on Skyscreamer by myself, he cried and kept telling the ride operator to let me off!


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



it's better that way, when guys get older their maturity levels increase somewhat. I'll tell you this and not to knock guys seeing how I have 11 brothers but women mature faster. It is definitely better to chill and let it ride.


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



Thanks! I am in no hurry to date. I will do like you and wait until I am an adult.


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



Sarah, good for you girlfriend! i'm so proud of you! it's hard to be sixteen and have to deal with a stupid guy always trying to get at you in a negative way. i had that happen to me a llot when i was around your age. I don't even think they found me attractive, i think they just thought it would be fun. Keep up the good work and don't give in.
Also, don't give up on love or guys. wait till you are older (my first sweet guy didn't happen till I was almost twenty) so there is no rush.
Aiming, we've had this convo before, i told you to chill out and let things ride. Once you get out of that small town, big things will happen.
Sarah, yes i want to go on a Disney, carnival, or princess cruise. sounds like a blast!


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



Hey Aiming, I gave up on love too! I am not relly in to boys because all my two boyfp3ends ever wanted to do was have sex and do drugs, I am 16 I don't need that. Mimi, I can't swim either, so that makes two of us! I would either love to go on a Disney or a Carnival cruise. Have a great time!


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



I should hook him up. He's just being a baby. Hahahaha.


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



Come on Aiming there is no such thing, everyone deserves to be loved. Mimi go on and hook her up some


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



no I'm not worth it and I've all ready given up.


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



next time I see you i'm gonna slap ya. *slap* lol Don't give up and you are so worth it.


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



Mimi, its a nice idea, but I don't think so. I've given up on love and finding someone; I'll always be alone. No one wants me. I don't deserve to be with anyone and no one deserves to be with me. But if you want you might try, but I'm starting to think its a waste of time.


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



Girl i feel ya! My guy owns his own restaurant with his parents and the three cooks there are his best friends. They own it in this really ritzy part of Cali so they do get lots of business; however, he calls throughout the day and emails and now he's going to start texting when I get my accessible phone.
I think they try to use trick questions on us girls just as much as we do. They swear like we're the only ones, lol.
I commend your guy for going back to work. i imagine how hard it must be for him but how brave and admirablle it is at the same time.
Aiming, I gotta hook you up with a girl so you can join in on our rants.

Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



Hi Mimi, talk about a mix hey, lol. My man's black too but his South African. He lost his sight last year in a car accident due to head injuries. He's pretty cool about things now but it was really hard to get there. He went back to work yesterday - first job after the accident. He told me not to call him at work and i spent the whole day so anxious about how it would be for him.

Man it was a crazy feeling to fight, i kept wanting to call him the whole time - he calls that my mother-type B.S (can i swear here?) and it pisses him off like you wouldn't believe.

He didn't like his first day there, he says he was so lonely and asked why i didn't call to check up on him - i didn't know if that was a trick question or what - that boy sometimes!

I've called him 3 times today already and he says i should cut it out.lol


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



So that I can go and be the princess that I've always dreamed of being. Hahahaha you know my guy would flip, no not really he'd be cool because he's already been to Disneyworld so he promised he'd take me.
Mimi


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



Mimi, you should maybe check out the disney cruises.
Aiming


Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



Hahahaha you guys crack me up. Aiming, i'll get you back for that later.
Money, I coincidentallhy bought the special edition of Titanic last month, so yeah, and i can't swim! Hahaha but I love your advice, that sounds like a blast!
I'm Mexican and mhy guy is Chinese who speaks Mandarin, English, spanish and Italian. I speak English, Spanish and understand some French and Italian so the possibilities are endless!!!!

Re:Cruiselines that are good to the blind



If you cant swim, learn how to now! lol

Mimi, i've never been on a cruise - i watched the Titanic so no no no, lol. But i did go on a cruise ship at the Cape Town Expo - the one my man and i checked out was pretty much like a town of its own it was enormous. It was 4 storeys high with 6 pools, jaccuzzis everywhere, beauty spa, bars, casino hall, gyms, designer stores to shop at, 3 clubs that played different music, i'm black and i love Kwaito, which is like South Africa and they have a club for us too, lol. did i mention restaurants, classy ones too and KFC and McDonalds - you won't run out of things to do i promise you
