Holidaying on cruise ships with my folding mobility scooter is ‘absolutely liberating’ says Rachel

Rachel Gibson-Leigh from Brighton, who lives with restricted mobility, has just proven holidaying on cruise ships with a folding TGA Minimo Plus mobility scooter is ‘absolutely liberating’.

Rachel is an accomplished book and graphic designer who took early retirement due to severe Osteo and Rheumatoid Arthritis. She now lives with her wife, Debbie, who has also recently retired from public service as a long standing civil servant. Debbie now cares for Rachel and with the help of two TGA folding mobility scooters, a compact Minimo Plus and mid-sized Maximo, they both live life to the full in Brighton. By owning a Minimo Plus Rachel was able to attend the Buckingham Palace Royal Garden Party last year in recognition of Debbie’s service to the nation where they shook hands with The Queen, Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Rachel has now experienced another ‘royal’ first in her life thanks to the Minimo Plus – a cruise around the Norwegian fjords on Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth ship.

Rachel explains: “We have just come home from cruising the Norwegian fjords aboard the majestic Queen Elizabeth. I took one of my scooters, the Minimo Plus and found it absolutely liberating and essential in allowing me to enjoy the holiday to the full. An Minimo Plus will empower you to travel just like me!”

Rachel continues: “On the small and nimble Minimo Plus I was able to navigate the large ship with ease from cabin to restaurant and spa – so essential as the QE is huge. On excursions it was vital in allowing me to appreciate all the sights and scenery that majestic Norway has to offer. I felt completely independent and free to savour everything I wanted to. No one batted an eye, the tour guides were helpful and the coach drivers on the excursions were more than happy to pop the folded Minimo Plus into the coach hold while we drove from place-to-place.”....read more
