If you can, get hold of a Berlitz guide to cruising which has a good section in it about what to look out for. It also has a list of ships with a rating system to determine which are the best etc.. Kind regard.

We have travelled twice with Ocean Village and on both occasions there were many wheelchair passengers. Most seemed very happy with the arrangements. Hope you find the right cruise for you. Good luck.

We have just returned from a Med cruise on Island Star. We looked at one of the wheelchair friendly cabins for future reference. They were larger than regular cabins and the bathroom was about twice as big with grabrails and a larger shower cubicle.They are on the same deck as the guest relations desk and one on the deck below.We were told that they get booked up quickly so bear that in mind.

P&O Cruises recently announced that that would be building a 9th ship to join the P&O Fleet in 2020. This comes only two years after the Britannia was released and I am pleased to say that after quite a few problems she has become a firm favourite in the P&O Fleet.Hopefully P&O will take forward the feedback on Britannia but we are yet to see what this new ship will look like; all P&O have said is that she will be 180,000 Gross tons and carry 5,200 Guests. This is the larg...

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
