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.

Do you need protection?

By Barbara Hopley

You may think ‘What is she on about?’Well let me explain….I have friends, family & even some customers who book their own holidays online then something goes wrong and what do they do – come to me for advice or help.I will help anyone but as a Travel Agent this is the worst thing that can happen as firstly, they didn’t book with me, secondly, they then want my help to sort out whatever issue there is.I can give so many examples of this, so here are a few:-Boo...

Ships Collide !

By Richard Smith

Richard Smith's blog

Watch this video on YouTube.I was shocked earlier this week to read a story of the new Seabourn Encore ship colliding with another ship.It turns out that the collision was minor and thankfully no-one was hurt but what left me wondering was how something like this could happen in the first place.The new ship was docked in Timaru, New Zealand at the time and was actually delayed in departure due to the strong winds there. The ship ended up breaking it’s moorings due to the strong winds an...

Brilliant News For Solo Travellers!

By Michelle Fennelly

Michelle Fennelly's blog

As a single traveller the majority of cruise liners will charge at least 100% supplement on a twin berth cabin for sole occupancy; this is actually double the price which in my view it is just ridiculous. It isnt fair and its not acceptable and its about time most cruise liners understood that a lot of their guests do travel alone.Well my good news is that Fred Olsen are doing special offers for solo travellers, eventually a cruise liner that has listened to their guests.The deal Fred Olsen a...
