On embarkation wheelchair users are given priority and assistance if required. On disembarking, provided QM2 are aware you are a wheelchair user, assistance is given to your car or transport, but sometimes you can have quite a wait depending on the number of other wheelchair users aboard.

In answer to your question, regarding useing a wheelchair,embarkation was very easy,but going ashore was another matter, we received no assistance going ashore. Where the gangway was stepped, I had to carry the wheelchair off,this is the FIRST and LAST time we will ever use CUNARD. Go on to P/O or PRINCESS, where they wont let you push a wheelchair down on your own, let alone carry one. Also going ahore in the tenders was no problem at all.

2018 is going to be an exciting year for cruising and Celebrity are really mixing it up a bit!For a few years now we have had the lovely Eclipse based in Southampton, which has been great as P&O, Cunard and Royal Caribbean notably dominated the port until the 5* Eclipse was based there.
