Why Not Talk Cruise .... About Accessible Seas!

I’m very excited and am planning my Friday afternoon around a radio show!

Royal Caribbean International has been hosting a show, “Why Not Talk Cruise” on the online radio station, The VoiceAmerica™ Talk Radio Network for a few months on Friday afternoons at 2:00 EST. I’m excited because this Friday’s (7/24/09) episode is devoted to “Accessible Seas!” The show’s guest will be Jean Driscoll, a Para-Olympian and godmother to Mariner of the Seas.

I didn't get the chance to meet Ms. Driscoll, but I did get the opportunity to check Mariner of the Seas the week she was onboard for the christening. I was checking and photographing "access." I'm the odd travel agent who does things like laying on the floor to get a photo showing a very slightly sloped floor and no lip to access the accessible cabins' bathrooms. (I'm a curiosity to most other travel agents when I'm on an agent ship tour as my photo choices are a bit unique.... and I sure take a lot of bathroom shots!)

I'm anxious to hear anything new that will be announced. I bet one topic of discussion will be the world's largest cruise ship (46 of her cabins will be accessible!), Oasis of the Seas which starts sailing this fall.

You can catch the show live at . The show will be archived on that site in case you miss the live episode. If attending live, click on "Channels" at the top and then on "Why Not Talk Cruise."

Let me know what you think of the episode.
