Default Handicap rooms

How can I find out where the handicap rooms are on a ship (specifically Miracle). One t/a told me there were no more available. And just another stupid question what is a PVP?
Thanks

Default Hc room

Your best bet is to call carnival and ask about HC rooms on your cruise. As to your second Question. A pvp is Personal Vacation Planer.

There are very few handicapped rooms on Carnival. My dad wanted a balcony HC room and the only one for our Glory cruise was in the very front of the ship. We opted to have him get a standard cabin as he didn't want to be in the front or 2nd cabin and that's where it was.

They aren't shown as such in the brochures so it is necessary to call Carnival or have your travel agent contact them for your trip. It is possible there are sold out for your sailing though.

There are not enough wheelchair accessible rooms on Carnival - especially cabins with balconys.

It's one of the reasons that we've been sailing on Princess and HAL more. Although, by the same token Carnival's cabin's are a larger size in general, it's still important to have some of the other aminities in a HC cabin, as well!

Be sure to check the Disabled Cruiser board under the sService dog thread for new DOT regulations that begin in November. Particulary about cabins in your case.

I book early and have had no trouble booking a handicapped cabin. With that said I just booked a cabin for Dec. 9th to surprise my hubby for our anniversary. There were no handicapped cabins in the price range I was willing to pay for a 3 day cruise, oceanveiw. I had to fill out the access form as we also needed a sharps container and refrige. Of course from habit I put the specs. of my electric chair on the form. A very nice woman called me from Guest Access Support and up graded us for free into a higher cat. handicapped cabin. That's one reason I love Carnival.
