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.

Traditional or Freestyle ? Whi...

By Camilla Edwards

Carnival`s decision to introduce a new rule of traditional diners on their ships made me think of the whole subject of when, where and with whom do you choose to dine on your cruise. On board Carnival Glory and Carnival Conquest passengers who opt for first or second sitting traditional dining will be turned away from the restaurant if they are more than 30 minutes late for their selected seating. So that means be there on time , and probably queue to get on, or go to the buffet.Dining time s...

Most of you will know I already have two wonderful children, Aimee and Rafe.They’re currently 9 (Aimee will be 10 in September) and 6.But I’m about to join the difficulties of finding 5 berth cabins! Baby number 3 is on it’s way!!Baby is due around mid January (although we’re sure he or she will be late and will come on Rafe’s birthday on 20th January).Being 35 means I’m classed as ‘higher risk’ due to my age (I’m not THAT old, am I??) bu...

One Stop Shop !

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
