Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by burchell (18 Nov 08 18:19)

Hi Lyn, This one bothers me a little because although the cabin will take a wheelchair at a push getting past the end of the bed(s) could be a bit tight and maybe not practicable and because the bathroom entrance is angled that could also be a no-no if your passenger is totally wheelchair reliant. I would have a long talk with Customer Service at P & O and see what they say and see if they have cabins that are totally accessible for wheelchairs. I don't think there is any problem with the sleeping arrangements because you have several options there with singles or doubles. Sorry to be negative but it's this one is worth checking with the people who can give you a correct answer, regards, Ida.

Hi P&O have dedicated Disable cabins which are much bigger, with adapted shower bath facilitys, wider doors, near to lifts & general facilities/restaurants ect hence alowing a W/C user to easily use, you need to speak with your travel agent to request this .

You will not be able to get the wheelchair through the door. Only disabled cabins have wide enough doors. If the person is not able to walk then an ordinary cabin is of no use to you. You may also be sent a questionairre so that they can assess whether the cabin choice is acceptable and also to ensure that the person is cared for as they can not offer this service. The bathrom and toilet/shower may also be an issue. They have a special section at their southampton headquarters- give them a ring before you go further and check your insurance covers all illnesses and that the company realises that it is a cruise you are going on. If you dont tell them it may negate your insurance as costs to recover the sick from cruise lines in the middle of the sea can be very expensive !!

By Anne Eaves

Anyone who is a fan of P&O cruises will recall the Adonia, the smallest ship in the fleet, left the company last year and was relocated to Miami to embark on a new venture fathom. From here she sailed to Dominican Republic where passengers helped with volunteer work like teaching English. There has now been a u-turn on this and Carnival Corporation has decided to return the ship to P&O.
