If you can get to Southampton try RCI they have rooms with wider doors wet rooms and lower fittings.you can get access to all areas and help when needing to board or leave the ship,they have areas at ice shows and in the theater to accommodate disabled passengers.hoist are available in the pool area if needed,my nephew had a great holiday on the Navigator last year and has booked the Independence for this year.Use a good agent who or a cruise club to book they will give you all the help you need ,go and enjoy it?

I can honestly say the entertainment team were really friendly and put on some great shows. I loved how the stage rose in the Neptune lounge making it a great area for lots of ...
