How strange to book a cruise/room with out knowing if it is suitable ? All info is on RCI website - >all about crusing > accessibility onboard. Your t/a should have given you all this info anyway.

It may seem strange to you and yes I felt I had asked all relevant questions from our t/a but as often happens different thoughts come to mind and it is allways nice to have reassurance from experienced wheelchair cruisers. Thanks for your input.

Hi, I use a wheelchair and sailed with Royal Caribbean (Mariner of the Seas) last year and it was excellent. I’m sure the accessible cabins must be the same on all their ships; ours had a roll in shower with a pull down seat and there was plenty of room to move around in there. We’ve travelled a lot over the last few years, mostly land based trips and hotels, but my partner thought the cabin’s facilities were amongst the best we’ve had. However, to put your mind at ease, you could have a word with the cruise company to confirm if it’s a roll in shower. Hope this info is helpful. Have a great holiday.

I suppose there is no quick answer to that and cruise lines vary in what they charge and also for how long you will be off the ship.The thing about excursions is that if you book them using the ship then if there are any delays then the ship will hold on for you and that is pretty much true but there is also another company we use out there that give you a guarantee to get you back to the ship in time and not everybody knows about them or has even looked at them, this is a shame as some of th...

My 6* Luxury Silverseas Experience

Last week I was lucky to have been chosen to fly to Dubai for 2 nights and then to sample 6* luxury on board the Silverseas Silver Spirit for 3 nights. Our flights from Edinburgh were with Turkish Airlines and we were very lucky to have half of us upgraded to Business Class on the way out, and the other half on the way back.We were late leaving Heathrow which meant we technically should have missed our connection but luckily the flight was held and after a mad dash to the plane (typically the...
