  1. Thinking of a P and O cruise visiting various ports in Croatia. How easy are the main ports using a manual wheelchair.
  2. Which ship would be best for a wheelchair user? Preferably a balcony cabin.
  3. What happens to your travel insurance if you have booked single trip? We haven’t booked an Oceana cruise but if we had our insurance would have been over £600. Do P and O compensate you for this?
  4. I have booked one of these cabins for our next cruise but can’t find out anything about these. Also how accessible is the rest of the ship. The veranda does not seem to have any way of getting to the different levels apart from steps, which I can’t manage. Are there any other areas which may present difficulties? The theatre also appears to have their seats steeply racked. Are there wheelchair accessible areas here? Our cruise includes one tender port. Will this be accessible to me? Thank you for any information that could help me.
  5. Thanks chaps. John, we prefer our breakfast in the MDR, but I didn’t know they started earlier on port days. you have to allow lots of time as waiting to get a wheelchair in a lift can take some time.
  6. Do P and O have designated areas in buffet for people in wheelchairs? We find buffets difficult enough without hunting for a table. We use them as little as possible, but sometimes with early excursions we need to use them for breakfast. Room service is not an option as we don’t like the panini and the other offerings aren’t really substantial enough to start the day.
  7. Thank you for your help chaps. I found the example excursions using giraffe’s instructions.
  8. When browsing cruises with a view to booking, you used to be able to see a selection of excursions for each port (not prices). I can’t find that on the new website. As the excursions are important to us it makes it difficult to choose a cruise.
  9. They take you to the luggage hall to collect your cases then out to the car park and help you put your luggage in the car. Really good and friendly service.
  10. Don’t forget if you are travelling on a UK cruise line you will have to book an accessible cabin. They will only let you use an ordinary cabin if you have a manual folding wheelchair. Even folding scooters are banned.
  11. I’ve had this problem for a few weeks now on my I pad. E mailed P and O and received the reply “This is a technical problem, please try another device” This is not a lot of help if you don’t have another device. P and O please get some new IT people who are in the 21st century and know what they are doing.
  12. Good morning Happy. I have received a reply from the excursion company. They usually use a 19 seater mini bus and you need to be able to get into the vehicle and use a folding wheelchair. They have assured me that most of the tour is accessible, though not all. Hope that helps.
  13. Hello Happy. I don’t know how to do a link, it is Saga Travel Iceland. I don’t think they have accessible transport as such. I’m lucky and can get on a coach with a little help, but it seems as if they use mini vans.Could you manage that or are you a full time wheelchair user? I have emailed them to try and find out for you. Fully accessible excursions are a ridiculous price, I do think it’s wrong to penalise people for being disabled. It’s not just a few pounds but hundreds.
