Suitable for people with disabilities?

Recommended Posts

How suitable are your ships for people with mild physical disabilities? Accepting shore excursions may be off the agenda, would you still be able to see enough to make the cruise worthwhile please?

Hey Sharon, 

As mentioned before, the only requirement for older guests is being able to go up and down a flight of stairs, if you are able to do that multiple times a day, you'll be okay with most of our excursions and life onboard the ship. 

While on landing sites, you'll be able to choose your activity level. Our hiking/walking groups are divided into multiple groups and intensities. If you feel your initial group choice is too slow/fast for you, you can always change your group. 

If off-ship excursions are not an option, you'll be able to make the most of your expedition by enjoying the majestic vistas of the Polar Regions from the outer decks of the ship and the Observation Lounge. You'll also be able to join our Expedition Team for educational presentations, attend documentary/movie screenings or borrow items from our Polar Libraries. 

We've attached some images below. Let us know if you have any additional questions! 🙂

Spending time on the top deck of your ship can make for some epic photos but beware of the weather!
