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.

What Jane failed to show/mention

By Kerry James

I have been watching this series of Cruising with Jane McDonald (Friday nights at 9pm on Channel 5), and thought that when she was on MSC and Viking she did show more of the ship to the watcher/cruiser which I did think was lacking in the first series.I was surprised MSC had them back on as in the first series she didnt really show of the MSC Divina but was pleased to see that she was showing the newest ship in the fleet – MSC Meraviglia (at the moment until the MSC Seaside and MSC Seav...

Ciao I am Sailing

By Frankie Bond

Frankie Bond's blog

As you read this I will have started my own holiday – and yes you have guessed it I am off on a cruise…Firstly I will be spending 3 nights in the Mestre area of Venice to explore this beautiful city which I must admit to having never been to before (other than landing at the airport for a transfer to Trieste in April) I am looking forward to strolling around the beautiful streets, stopping for an ice-cream or a coffee in a lovely square and also to exploring the waterways of Veni...

By Neil Holmes

Neil Holmes's blog

Well you have read the news. Ryanair are planning to cancel 40-50 flights a day…..yes A DAY because they have messed up their pilots holiday rota’s!!! I thought Michael O’Leary’s hair brained idea of ‘low cost standing room only on his flights’ was nonsense but I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard this news. Firstly are all their pilots taking holiday in Sept-Oct ? Is there a cheap deal we don’t know about and all the staff at Ryanair are...
