Holland America line also has a good reputation for their service to elderly disabled passengers.

Have been on 2 Fred Olsen cruises and I think it would be difficult to imagine a cruise line that puts itself out quite so much for people who are elderly and/or less mobile. There are lifts, cabins with disabled access and loads of people whizzing around in wheelchairs/scooters etc. They also apparently go way beyond the legal requirements in terms of medical staff on board.

Thomson Cruises cater for the disabled. The Thomson Celebration & Thomson Spirit both have 4 cabins aet aside on deck seven for the disabled, in which the facilities are very wheelchair user friendly. I know this because I cruised on the Celebration last year with my disabled brother and you are able to get ashore to visit the sites apart from when there is a tender to shore. I don't know whether there are care facilities on board and therefore recommend that you contact the tour company.

It sounds like Celebrity cruises have a few things going wrong on their Infinity ship based in South America this winter.Most reviews we receive reagrding Celebrity cruises are excellent and reflect the 5* staus in the cruising market. Guest to staff ratio means you have much more space to enjoy the facilities on-board.I recently had a customer return from this cruise in January and although she had a great time, there were so many problems encountered due to one of the ships propellersIf the...
