Disabled Facilties

Any disability requiring special attention must be reported to

buses are not equipped with wheelchair ramps and cabin doors
are not wide enough to allow access by standard wheelchairs.
Wheelchairs and walkers cannot be carried on tour buses, due to
space limitations. Wheelchair passengers should be aware of these
limitations. For safety reasons, passengers in wheelchairs cannot
be carried on ramps in ports where the ship is at anchor. We regret
that we cannot provide individual assistance to a tour member
for walking, getting on/off tour busses and other transportation
vehicles, or other personal needs. A qualified travel companion
must accompany travellers who need assistance.
