I traveled with my 88 year old mother-in-law last year and there was no way she could do those stairs so they allowed us to use the elevators.
We try to position ourselves close to our mustard station with our life vests a few minutes before they call everyone to proceed to their station and wait until the last minute to walk out on deck.
Someone gave me the tip before my first cruise and I was so glad I took their advise. It gets so crowded.
