Some of the answer depends on which ship and cruise line but the general answer is YES staterooms will accommodate that type of wheelchair and on the more modern ships there are very few places that you cannot go. Your main drawback is in anchored ports when transfer to tenders is often impossible for motorised wheelchairs....hope this helps...Nei.

If you can get to Southampton try RCI they have rooms with wider doors wet rooms and lower 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?

Viking River Cruises Award...

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

Knowing that river cruise ships are much smaller and given that the facilities are smaller, you might be forgiven for thinking that the food on board is going to be nowhere as good, or varied, as on an ocean cruise, you would be wrong! I must admit, having seen the size of the galley on a river cruise ship I was astonished because the food that they produce in such a confined space is superb.
