Atchison - Answered a Question by treharne (30 May 07 18:55)

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.

SUPPLEMENTS THE CURSE OF THE ...

By Janet Goodwin

Sounds like something that JK Rowling could use a title for one of her novels but in the real world the word supplement strikes fear into the heart and wallet of many a single traveller. We receive quite a few enquiries where people make a comment about supplements and how unfair they are, but is the cruise industry cashing in or are the supplements part of a wider dilemma? Take hotels for instance; they charge a room rate and it doesnt matter if there are two people in the room or one perso...

Adonia back with P&O

By Gemma Coles

Gemma Coles's blog

 It doesn’t seem that long ago when we said goodbye to the P&O Adonia. P&O Adonia left the fleet in 2015 with much sadness to lots of passengers. The ship went to Fathom Cruises which is a line dedicated to volunteer tourism. Guests were taken to locations such as the Dominican Republic to help teach English or build water filtration systems to help with poorer countries. Carnival Group have now announced that after an upgrade to the ship, with the addition of a new rest...

The ship only has a 710 passenger capacity and is adult only making i...
