I have just come back from a cruise on Sea Princess to the Iberian Peninsular. There were several wheelchair users on board and the crew and facilities seemed to work fine for them. Adrian Woo.

When traveling on P & O's Arcadia and Oceana there were people in wheelchairs and there certainly didn't seem to be any problems on board and there was plenty of help getting on and off the ship in port.

P&o have disabled cabins, mobility assistance at the docks and ports, lifts on the ship - lots of disabled people cruise - go for it! Try Arcadia/Aurora Oriana you will love it Su.

Just returned from a cruise on Sea Princess ( Princess Line ) There were many wheelchair users on the ship. Have a great time when you go! Special areas reserved for special needs at all the shows too.

P&O have specific cabins for wheelchairs and on board Arcadia for instance they did everything they could to assist handicapped passengers to enjoy their cruise as much as anyone. Suggest you contact P&O for more info.

all Celebrity and Royal Caribbean cruise ships are wheelchair friendly, as is QM2 and all P&O. Most newer ships will fit the bill as they have cabins specifically designed, but book early they are popular - older ships have high sills, smaller lifts and awkward spaces.

The newer modern ships are better equipped for wheelchair users. however we found p&o very helpful on the older ships.however if choosing a holiday where you have to tender to get ashore if you cannot stand up out of the wheelchair to step onto the tender (with help) they will not lift you.

Definitely, Thomson Celebration, I've seen it for myself and they also go a bit more in reserving you a good table in the show lounge for you and your party. They are very good with this type of passenger as what I've seen, also bigger rooms and ease of access, ramps and staff that care, try the RED SEA next for a brilliant time--John Brow.

Fact Or Fiction Its Over To You

By Gail Ryan

Fact Or Fiction – It’s over To YouI have worked in the travel industry for more years now than I care to remember.

Our flight from Hong Kong to Auckland was in the early evening so we decided to make the most of our last few hours and explore a bit more. We had spent the previous night at the Cosmo Hotel in Wan Chai on Hong Kong Island so after an early breakfast at the hotel, we checked out and left our luggage with the concierge. The Cosmo is very close to plenty of shops and bars and the Happy Valley racecourse. As I was so close, I decided to check out another popular hotel we use the Metropark Causew...
