All of our accessible (adapted) cabins feature:

  • Wide doorways into the cabin and bathroom
  • Sufficient floor space for manoeuvring a wheelchair or mobility scooter
  • Wet room style bathrooms
  • Grab rails for shower and toilet
  • Pull-down shower seat
  • Flush thresholds between bathroom and cabin

Balcony cabins have ramped access to the balcony.

Arcadia also has a number of partially accessible cabins. The main difference is that they have less manoeuvring room, so aren't suitable for full-time wheelchair users.

Adonia and accessibility

Adonia is our smallest ship and has particularly high door thresholds and steep ramps. You may need help from your companion to move safely between different areas of the ship.

Accessible bathrooms on Adonia are smaller than the equivalent on some other P&O Cruises ships. This means wheelchair users may require more assistance than usual to manoeuvre once inside.

When in public areas, you'll need to make sure your mobility scooter is clear of any exits or fire doors. The ship's staff will be able to advise where you can safely leave your scooter. Guests who are heavily reliant on the use of a wheelchair or mobility scooter may be severely restricted in embarking and disembarking at ports of call. This is because Adonia doesn’t have a low-level ramped gangway. All access to the quayside is by a narrow, stepped gangway.

For this reason, Accessible Shore Excursions are not offered on Adonia.

Access around the ship

We want everyone to enjoy the ship to its full potential while staying safe, so here are the key things you need to be aware of.

  • The majority of public areas and venues have level or ramped access.
  • There are raised door thresholds throughout theship which need to be navigated with care.
  • You may find certain areas of the ship narrower than you are used to.

In the interest of your own safety and that of other guests, mobility scooters and wheelchairs must be driven at a safe speed at all times.


Please pay careful attention when backing out of elevators in a mobility scooter/wheelchair as these are often in close proximity to the staircases.


In our theatres and other entertainment venues, there are allocated spaces for guests who want to watch the performance from their wheelchair/mobility scooter and seating nearby for companions.

Swimming pools

Some of our ships have a pool hoist. To check whether this is available on your cruise, visit
