Help! Need info on mobility scooter for ederly Dad

We are cruising next wed out of Miami on the Wonder. Does anyone know of how to secure a mobility scooter for my Dad. He stumbles a lot and I think if he had one of those it would be better. I called DCL but they didn't have any information. Any ideas on how to handle this?

Thanks

Not sure about Miami, but I suggest you do a Google search for "medical equipment rentals in Miami." From Port Canaveral, it's Brevard Medical. If all else fails, contact them to see if they can direct you to someone near the Miami port.

Enjoy your cruise!

Just to add as well... unless you have an H/A stateroom already, the scooter is not likely to fit through a regular stateroom door. DCL doesn't really have space to park scooters in the hallways as they are narrow. If allowed, you may be given an alternative spot to park it, but someone will have to be a runner for Dad unless he can manage the hallway without the ECV (which may depend on your stateroom location).

You might want to look into either an H/A stateroom.

Good luck!

Don't think DCL is able to provide them...rent one and have it brought to the port, or to a hotel if you are staying at one.

I doubt you will be able to fit a scooter into a regular stateroom, so look into an accessible stateroom, maybe when you board. It's probably too late to change staterooms now.
