Cruise ship travel with wheelchairs
Cruise ships are becoming more accessible and continue to make great accommodations a priority for wheelchair passengers.
CHOOSING A CRUISE SHIP
All of the major cruise lines offer wheelchair-accessible accommodations and excellent amenities.
All cruise ships that sail in U.S. waters must be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and offer equal access for people who travel on cruise ships.
Some stateroom and cabins include ambulatory accessibility for cruisers with mobility limitations that require canes, walkers, and wheelchairs.
Cruise ships offer their guests stair-free, flat-threshold cabins with wider (32-inch) doorways, turning space, and bathrooms equipped with grab bars and shower seats.
Accessible staterooms can range from 160 square feet to 300 square feet, offer a five-foot turning radius, bathrooms and sitting areas for easy maneuverability.
Go on an adventure, sightseeing and explore in comfort with accessible shore excursions offered by your cruise line or a travel company.
These cultural excursions and tours accommodate wheelchair users by offering adventure tours with accessible vehicles with wheelchair lifts or ramps, interesting attractions with accessible bathrooms and wide doors, and experienced local tour guides familiar with accessibility needs.
