Can we get close to the wharf to be dropped off by my daughter? When we get back is there anywhere she can wait while we disembark?

Anyone know what they charge?


I have tried Dr Google but he isn't helping much today!

You can drive through to drop off and collect,but not park.
We chose a suitable time and when we are off the ship,ring on our mobiles,to get picked up.
There are benches to sit on while you wait.

Theldaken is spot on. Drop off or pick up only. You will get just a few minutes before they move you on.

Just make sure you are leaving/arriving at the OPT and not White Bay.

We are getting a car from the airport. Hubby has a broken back & can't lift the luggage & we have a 4 year old autistic son. Can the driver drop our bags off for us?

I'm good but I can push a wheel chair, a pram & carry 3 carry on bags and 3 suitcases at once !

Yes, it'll stop right by the kerb, so dropping bags off with you there is fine. Luggage drop off is only about 10 m away, so it's easy to roll or carry them the short distance, in plain sight.

There are staff to help with luggage drop off.

Thank you! Getting on & off the ship is a real worry for us.

RCI has advised me that I can have priority checkin at the time I want and that they supply wheel chairs for embark meant & disembarkment.

Plus they can arrange a mobility scooter or wheelchair on board for hire.
