Many of the cruise lines are very well equipped for wheelchair access but have to be careful with some of the British smaller ships - the crew will always do the best taht they can and help.

All ships will have disabled facilities but it very much depends on the ship that will suite you. I have never come across a crew member unwilling to help anyone but some of the smaller ships maybe more difficult to get around on.

Most of the cruise lines welcome passengers who require the use of wheelchairs, and most of the ships have specifically adapted disabled cabins onboard. They do normally stipulate that you must be accompanied by an able-bodied companion. When making your booking just point out straight away that you will be travelling in a wheelchair, so the correct cabins can be checked for you and any other necessary arrangements can be discussed. Why now check out the 'Accessibility' section on the left hand side of the website for any further advice.

I love smaller ships, I don’t need a choice of 14 restaurants, multiple bars and lounges, rock climbing walls and ice-skating rinks, if anything it is too much choice and I find you end up flitting from bar to bar all evening, not settling in one place. Give me a Fred Olsen ship with one bar, one lounge and one theatre and I have all I need thank you very much.A couple of years ago I had the chance to visit the Hebridean Princess, the little ship that has been chartered by her Majesty f...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
