Go for the newer ships and you will be fine particularly if you ask and get a specially adapted cabin for disabled people. Also don't be afraid to fly to your destination as airlines are very helpful with wheelchair passengers if you let them know in advance as well children. regards ....Nei.

Where did that come from? Surely a question like that deserves a little more than the applied invective. I am willing to stand my ground on any topic and if proved wrong apologise, are you? ....Neil.

Yes airports do help but Oh my god the waits are even worse for disabled more often than not and any delays are a nightmare. Go from Southampton, dover or Harwich. Park car, walk on ship ! Keep to a smaller ship 70,000 tons as the bigger ones 2 - 3,000 passengers, can be overwhelming and exhausting to get around even for the able ! I reccomend P&O (Oceana and Oriana) and Princess, because of the trained childrens staff (she will love it)and the ambience. Sea Princess is a lovely ship and as it deals in dollars on board it is great with the exchange rat at present. Just make sure you make your needs clear when you book and all will be well - enjoy .

Yes, I can recommend P & O too - I would be reluctant to fly again as it is SO simple to embark from Southampton. Their ships are fab for young children (mine love the clubs!) and there are always loads of wheelchair users on board. The staff always seem to be very helpful to passengers with mobility problems too.

By Amy Ginder

Amy Ginder's blog

This time of year we have a lot of calls asking for late availability for the school holidays. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is very late in the day. Most cruise lines have filled all of their 3 and 4 berth cabins and those that have space will charge you astronomical prices.So what do you do if you are looking to cruise in the school holidays? The answer is book early! Book now for 2018, if you leave it to nearer the time not only will the prices climb but you are unlikely to ge...

One of the perks of living in a seaside town is the yearly airshow that comes to Weston Super Mare every June and lasts the whole weekend. The whole town is buzzing with excitement and ethusiasm, and plane enthusiasts alike. This weekend we were so lucky with weather, reaching the late twenties and even higher in some parts of the day.Not only do we have our skiers filled with amazingly aerodynamics performances but our beach lawns come to life thriving with people walking around the various...
