All modern ships have good access and facilities for wheelchair users including special rooms.The Berlitz guide will give you a rating for the best ships,But please remember that not all port have good disabled facilities so maybe consider sailing from a UK port where they have plenty of help and close to the ship parking,RCI would be my recommendation but out of the school holidays,best of luck?

You do not say what your question is other than with mobility. Arcadia with P & O are very very good with people with mobility problems and look after them well. I would suggest one should avoid the family orientated ships as the staff did not seem as empathetic. P & O will send you a questionnaire as to your mobility problems and requirements. Be Honest - remember you cannot bleat afterwards if you are not direct in your dealing with the company. Bon Voyage!

My holiday on Celebrity Reflection… What was the entertainment like? Well there is of course the bars and lounges but this ship had something special…….Silent Disco – Now ive got to say i haven’t been to a disco since 1985, so I would imagine a lot has changed over the years and to my amazement we had the Silent Disco, actually the ship arranged two of them, one on the top sun deck and one in the Solarium, which was by day a tranquil place to snooze, swim or try ...
