Hi, Just yesterday I was discussing this same subject with a disabled man. He cruises a lot and has a motorized wheel chair. It is quite large. He cruises as often as possible. He has been able to fit his whelchair through the normal cabin door, very close fit though. With the aid of his care giver he was able to access the bathroom.
