Hi i have just returned from a cruise with island star. albeit we had a balcony on the 9th deck but my huwband always takes his wheelchair with him. this ship is superb in that the corridors are nice and wide and the wheelchair goes through the doors. there were only two of us. we put the wheelchair out on the balcony. a great cruise ship and one on which we hope to go again.

Hello,we have been on 3 p@o ships so far,although we dont need the same accomodation as you are looking for,on all 3 we have seen people with wheelchairs so in all probability all the ships cater for your needs,so really it all depends where you want to go.we have been on aurora,oceana and oriana,there were lots of people like yourselves on the oriana,so you would be ok on board,but as a ship although similar we prefered the aurora but,thats only our opinion..best wishes d mello.

The best I can come up with is upon Ocean Village as their suites apart from the double bed/2 singles whichever you prefer the sofa also comes out to make a bed also..if my memory serves me correctly the entrance doors are wider and suitable for a wheelchair ..hope this help.

I would suggest Celebrity Infinity or Constellation because there have been many disabled and wheelchair/motorised chair users on all 4 cruises I have been on with this company and they seemed to be catered for well.

Hi, Most modern ships are wheelchair friendly, but ask first. The ship that is deffinately NOT wheelchair friendly is the QE2 - on certain decks around the lifts you have to climb or descend stairs (no ramps) to get to the lifts and lots of ups and downs all over the place. BEWARE the QE.

The navigator of the seas royal family suite is ideal, we have just used this for two weeks around the med. there were 3 of us with mum in her wheelchair. and we had no problems at all.

My husband is disabled and uses an electric wheelchair and we have travelled on two P&O ships Aurora and Oceana and found both to be wheelchair friendly. The disabled cabins are a very good size and the bathrooms have a large shower area. All the staff were extremely helpful.

Happy New Year from Aurora

By Anne Eaves

We are nearly half way through January and Christmas and New Year seem like a distant memory already. I cant believe that it is 10 days already since I got back from my New Year cruise on Aurora which also seems like an age ago. When I woke up on 27th December and seen all the snow I did wonder if we would get to Southampton at all, thank goodness we had booked and hotel in Southampton for 28th December so we would be there the day before.After a lovely night out in Southampton and a night at...

Tipping on board cruise ships

By Renee Gagen

Renee Gagen's blog

Tipping on board cruise ships has always been a problem, many customer’s like to do this, many don’t, I’m a person that doesn’t like to be told how much I should give and who to give it too and is it getting out of control the amount that cruise lines are putting these up by?Many people think it’s just on cruise ship but many holiday destinations you have to tip places so what is the recommended amount that you should tip? I know while I was on Holiday in Goa my ...
