P&O do have wheelchair accessible cabins, including bathroom. These are slightly larger than normal and have wider electrically operated doors. These are indicated on the deckplans but they do get booked up quickly. They also have wheelchair accessible transport at certain ports, usually those within the EU, although they are dependent on local availabilty. Many people inwheelchairs cruise and do not seem to have a problem. Mosy of the other major cruise lines offer the same facilities, particularly on modern ships.

I am not aware of one that does not offer full facilities for wheelchair users and most are very good at making sure that your experience is no different to that of able bodied people. There will be the odd occasion when certain excursions will not be available because the places involved do not offer full access etc. and there may be times when going onto the ship's tender is not practicable, this occurs when the ship is anchored off-shore and the sea is running in a dangerous manner. Hope that helps. .... Neil.

In my last blog, I compared the drinks packages so I thought I would look at something else that people are constantly asking for on their cruiseWIFI. I wanted to do a comparison as to who offers the most reliable and best value at sea and whether its worth signing up for or waiting until you get to port to use the free Wi-Fi.Royal CaribbeanCost: $10-15 per day.

Well Summer is here which means there is usually a lot going on with holidays, days out and spending time with family and friends. It has certainly been a busy start to the Summer for me and the calendar has already taken a beating with lots going on over the last couple of weeks. I started the month with 4 nights away with a friend at her apartment in Fuerteventura. We flew out on 28th June and returned on 2nd July and had a lovely time chilling and relaxing although it was very very hot.T...
