According to the berlitz guide they have 4 wheelchair accessible cabins on this ship but it doesnt give any information on the specific facilities in them. Suggest you either speak to Thomson or your Travel Agen.

Having been on board the Celebration last summer, which is the sister ship to the Spirit. The cabin layouts are exactly the same. I shared a wheelchair accessible cabin with my disabled brother, which are located on deck seven and just below the bridge of the ship. The cabins are a generous size and there is no need to worry, everything is wheelchair user friendly. The shower includes a drop down seat and the sink is accessible for wheelchair users. The drawer units are wheelchair user friendly also, but they will need a hand if they need to hang anything in any of the double wardrobes, as the hanging rails are a little bit to high for them. There is no need to worry about access to these cabins, as the doors are a little bit wider than the other cabins. My brother really enjoyed his time on the cruise and had no trouble getting around the ship, as there are ramps to the majority of doors and the lifts are accessible for wheelchairs.

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...
