Default Embark w scooter in Charleston

Exactly how does this work? I am leaving in a few weeks and starting to get nervous. We have a large party Dh, myself, and five kids. Plus DMIl, FIL, and BIL. To complicate things DH will be using the Carnival assist with a wheelchair and both MIL and FIL will be using mobility scooters. How will this work with the shuttle? Does anyone know if they will let myself and the kids go with them. I love my kids but dealing with 5 of them with no help while boarding is frightening. Any advice would be great!

You will all be able to board together. Carnival will not split the family up while boarding.

Regarding shuttle .... you need to confirm with Carnival that the shuttle has a lift. Also if it does so how many scooters and or wheelchairs can it hold at one time as your group might have to be split up between multiple shuttles.
