Accessible cabins and ship access

We want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable cruise holiday with us. Here, you can learn about our accessible cabins and other accessibility features on board.

Any guest who is a full-time wheelchair or mobility scooter user or requires the use of their device inside their cabin, must be booked into an accessible cabin, selected Suites or Mini-suites that provide the space and features required to suit guest’s needs. If you tell us (on your on-board needs questionnaire) that you will be bringing mobility equipment and the cabin you have chosen is not a fully accessible cabin or selected Suite or Mini-suite, there may be insufficient room to manoeuvre your mobility aid. Therefore, we may need to contact you to discuss other cabin options.

Due to the space within partially adapted cabins and ambulant-accessible cabins, they are not appropriate for guests who require a profiling bed on board. We can only accept a limited number of profiling beds on each cruise so please contact if you require this for your cabin. Please note, on Arcadia there are a limited number of suitable accessible cabins for guests who require a profiling bed on board.

Use the accordions below to find out more about our accessible cabins or explore the full list of accessible and partially adapted cabins by ship.

Accessibility on board

Please be aware of the following important safety tips when moving around the ship:
  • Our ships are very large, and distances may be a challenge for those with impaired mobility
  • The ships’ doors are heavy
  • The majority of public areas and venues have level or ramped access
  • There are raised door thresholds throughout the ships, and specifically out onto open deck areas, which need to be navigated with care
  • Some non-accessible public bathrooms have a threshold (high steps into the bathroom)
  • You may find certain areas of the ship narrower than you are used to, including cabin doors
  • 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
  • The launderettes on board are not accessible
  • No type of mobility aid should be left unattended in a public area, including corridors and outside cabins
