Details from the Fred Olsen website are as follows:- Passengers relying on wheelchairs for mobility - at any time during the cruise- are welcome on board Black Watch, Boudicca, Braemar, Black Prince and Balmoral, but you must advise Fred Olsen Cruise Lines at the time of booking. For your own convenience, comfort and safety you must be accompanied by an able-bodied companion. Motorised wheelchairs/scooters will only be accepted on Braemar when occupying a designated wheelchair accessible cabin. On health and safety grounds chairs weighing in excess of 25kg that do not dismantle cannot be carried ashore at any ports of call other than the start/end point of the cruise. We regret that we cannot accept motorised wheelchairs/scooters for use on board Black Prince. In accordance with safety requirements we regret that the number of passengers using wheelchairs onboard is restricted to 4 on Black Prince and Braemar, 6 on Black Watch and Boudicca and 9 on Balmoral. However subject to further quotas, additional wheelchairs/scooters can be stored for use ashore only. Jan .

Or left side versus the right side of the ship?I suppose it depends on where you’re headed. I know that quite a few seasoned cruisers swear by the Starboard side. Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...

By Haydn Jones

I’ve just come back from a family Easter holiday to Spain, surprisingly not on a cruise this time. My children are of the age where we have to go away during school holidays. We decided on Benalmadena, Spain as we have been before , its not too far, and the boys love it there. The weather was absolutely glorious, we were so lucky this time of year to have 10 days of boiling sunshine. Benalmdena is a town on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, known for its beaches and the modern Pue...
