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 ? Jane.

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.

The River Cruise Line saved as...

By Richard Smith

 I was shocked at the end of last week when I started to hear reports that The River Cruise Line could cease trading.I have personally sailed with The River Cruise Line in the past and had a great experience doing so. I think that they offer very good value for money and offer a product that can cost a lot less to book than some of their more luxurious rivals.Unfortunately Diamond Shortbreak Holidays Ltd who were the parent company of The River Cruise Line announced that they had to go i...

Celebrity Edge is on its Way

By Robin Clarke

Robin Clarke's blog

So the brand new Celebrity Edge has now gone on sale for her maiden voyage on the 16th of December starting her Caribbean voyages where she will be based in Fort Lauderdale. This ship is like no other at sea with so many fantastic new amenities on-board such as the new infinite balconies which even I was blown away by this. The balcony itself is now within the cabin and has a separator if you wish to use it to separate the balcony from the cabin. You then have a switch that you can push that ...

Betsy Davies's blog

Well I have just returned from my first ever visit to a River cruise ship. What a way to start!!! I visited the AmaPrima and Ama are rated the highest standard of ships in Europe according to the Berlitz guide.I flew to Amsterdam and we got picked up by a brand new AMA coach and transferred the short distance to the centre of city to meet the ship, the first eye opener for me was exactly how near to the centre of the town the ship was. If I am being really honest I really didn’t know w...
