    Photos of Handicap Accessible Cabins & General HA Cabin Information

    Photos of handicap accessible cabins & General HA cabin Information:

    If you have photos of any handicap accessible cabins, would you please post them. It would be helpful to know the name of the ship, type of cabin, cabin number.

    Also a comment on how accessible you felt the ship was to someone in a wheelchair or scooter.

    Thank you. We are planning future cruises and most sites do not have photos of handicap cabins.

    Thank you. Any and all information greatly appreciated.

    Radisson Seven Seas Voyager - Special Features of Wheelchair-Accessible Suite
    The wheelchair accessible or handicapped suites on the Seven Seas Voyager are easily accessible to those in wheelchairs. The bedroom and sitting areas are much like those in other suites; however, the bath features an easy access shower, lower sink, and hand rails next to the toilet.

    No photos of the actual room, just of the bathroom.

    Special Needs - Information for cruise travelers who use a wheelchair or have other special needs
    Lots of information on wheelchair accessible cruise ships.

    Here's a review that talks about the cabins the Carnival Triumph.
    Sealetter Cruise Ship Review: Carnival Cruise Lines Carnival Triumph
    Thought this was interesting:
    The Carnival Triumph carries a total staff of 1,100, and has 1,321 cabins with a guest capacity of 2,758 (double occupancy); however, on this voyage, she carried 3,022 passengers, of which 200 were children. There are only twenty five wheelchair-accessible cabins, none of which have balconies. This is odd on a ship where about one third of her staterooms have balconies. All are interior or oceanview cabins. We had a pleasant meeting with Hotel Director Miles Willis (knowledgeable and informative) and we learned some things we should have known before booking. There are no wheelchair-accessible cabins with balconies. All of the cabins modified for wheelchair access are either interior or ocean view (with window). When we booked a Category 8 with balcony, we thought it would be fine, but as soon as we got on board, we saw Vincent's wheelchair and walker were useless due to the narrowness of the entry way, the door to the bathroom and the passage around the bed to the balcony.

    Sealetter Cruise Ship Review: Princess Cruises Grand Princess
    "This review will have some specific information for the physically challenged passengers, which may be of note, since recently we have read negative comments on cruising for the handicapped. We say "Phooey"! Going on wheels or on legs doesn't have to be any different. The Grand Princess welcomes all equally as do all of the other magnificent ships on which we have traveled. Princess has taken extraordinary measures to make cruisers feel welcome and comfortable, more about that later. "

    Good detail about Baja Deck #B301 wheelchair accessible cabin, but no photos.

    NOTE from MilliesMom ... we traveled with a friend on the Dawn Princess. She had an oceanview HA cabin. Don't remember the cabin number tho. The cabin was HUGE as was the bathroom. 2 single twin beds, lots of vanity and storage space. The negative with the Dawn Princess is the show room. It has stairs all the way down. My friend could not sit with her husband or us if she wanted to watch any of the shows. She had to sit in the back landing area in her wheelchair. Many in wheelchairs left as there was not room for them. So disappointing. The rest of the ship seemed to be good for accessibility. The staff gets an A+ in service in the dining room and buffet areas. They were always right there to help her. In the buffet they would push her chair, carry her tray, anything she needed. They came to her, she didn't have to search for help.

    Radiance of the Seas (this information is directly from the special needs dept):

    Our standard stateroom door dimensions are 23 inches wide and some of our higher suites are about 25 inches wide. The hallways on our ships are approximately 46-50 inches wide.

    (I had written them in regards to the regular cabins and wondered if a scooter could get thru the cabin door). These dimensions do not pertain to the HA cabin doors.


    When my sister, my brother in law, and my nephew travel they now need a HA cabin for 3. Not easy to come by. On the Carnival Spirit Class ships, they do NOT exist, altho cabins for 2 do exist on this class of ship.


    Here's the response from RCCL on which cabins will hold 3 people: (NOTE: there are other HA cabins that will hold 2 people ... these are the ones for 3)

    Radiance:
    JS 1028
    JS 1528

    G 4006 & 4008

    N 4017 & 1517

    Mariner:
    JS 1608 & 1308

    L Inside 9353 & 9357 & 9561

    RCCL Cat G HA cabin ... 4008 (will hold 3 people): (this is from a friend who posted):

    This was from someone who had cruised before in this cabin: (a normal ocean view is 170 sq feet ... your cabin is 255 sq ft)

    Here is what I remember about that cabin and what I have been able to get from other websites. It is an outside view cabin, 255 sqft (compared to a JS which is 293sqft. Bathroom is equipped with all accessible features - lots of grab bars, roll-in shower with fold down seat, lowered vanity sink which allows wheelchair to fit under. Twin beds, with 3rd and 4th Pullman beds which pull down from the ceiling (I assume that is what they would use for the daughter) Door into cabin is extra wide 34" to permit easy entrance by wheelchair or scooter. If he rents a scooter, and I suggest he does because it makes getting around on board so much easier, it must be stored in the cabin at night because RCCI does not permit overnight storage outside in the hallway. If he indeed does rent, it should come equipped with a powercord for recharging which also must be in the cabin. We have found the easiest way at night is to fold the wheelchair out of the way and just leave the scooter between the beds next to his bed. It does not work very well at all if the beds are made up as a double - much better made up as twins. One disadvantage to this cabin is that it is far forward, and if the ship encounters any rough weather, there is a lot of pitching(up and down) movement. If weather is good they should have no problems. I also suggest that you try to arrange for a small table - preferably 4 - somewhere near the dining room entrance. Assuming he will be using the scooter in the dining room, a larger table is a problem because the other table mates have to squeeze to get the scooter in. Same reason for closer to the entrance - the scooter does not have to squeeze in between a lot of chairs and tables.
    I suggest you call Special Needs Dept of RCCI and talk to Ebony and she should be able to help on the dining room reservations. What I have said is based on our experience on all 4 Radiance class ships, and we are sailing on Serenade on a 15night Hawaii circle next month from here in San Diego.

    Reggie (Reggierail) sent me this information today on the Celebrity Mercury:

    The Mercury has just 8 accessible cabins, 1 inside on deck 5 and 7 outside also on deck 5. I had a client in one of my groups booked in 5067, one of those outside cabins, and they were in a wheelchair. I saw the cabin and it was very spacious and very accessible. The total SF is 256 and dimensions w/o bathroom is 13 feet by 11&1/2 feet. With bathroom it is 13 feet by 19&1/2 feet. It has 2 lower twins convertible to Queen and 1 upper berth.
