Berlitz list this ship as moderately accessible for wheel chair users so all may not be lost. Call your Travel Agent and explain the situation, they may be able to put your mind at ease if they wont help, call Thomson to determine the areas which may cause concern. Kind regard.
Thank you kind person for your help and answer to my problem after reading the Berlitz report I could not find anything on accessibility and afer speaking to Cruise Delas whom I booked cruise with who neglected to inform me of no use of wheelchairs I have been worried my main concern is just using the chair to carry around to certain destinations ie dinner and pool deck etc I understand there is no rrom in cabins they are on the small side but do you think they would allow this to help us around the ship ?
We have been on three Thomson ships...but not Destiny...and the crew have always been most helpful to wheelchair users. We have just returned from Celebration and there were at least half a dozen wheelchair users and there were tables set aside in the restaurants and in the show lounge...There are lifts to all decks....They also went on the excursions. I hope this helps to put your mind at rest but you could ring Thomson and ask their advice if you are still worried.
We have just come back from the canaries on the destiny. although the ship is quite large i do not think that it is wheelchair friendly. you will be able to get about quite well using the lifts as much as possible but will still be restricted at getting to some parts of the ship.but the staff on board will do everything possible to help where needed as there are quite a lot of steps about the ship hope this helps. yours faithfully s.f. brown.ps dont book on the emerald, definatly not for wheelchairs.
