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 .
