Default Re: width of cabin doors on RCCL's Monarch of the Sea

The Monarch is an older ship which usually means fewer accessible cabins. These cabins do tend to book up very far in advance. According to my resource the Monarch of the Seas has four accessible cabins: two outside numbers 9034, 9534 and two inside numbers2007, 2057. Also all areas are accessible but the swimming pool, upper level of the Wind Jammer café and the Champagne bar. There is an accessible public restroom near the Purser's office with a 36" door and emergency call button.

You cannot leave your wheelchair or scooter out in the hallway. It is a fire hazard, and also blocks the hall for other passengers, esp. other wheelchair users. Keep in mind that there will be a narrow bathroom door also, and usually a 4-6 inch step into the bathroom.

Not sure of the door width, but many are less than 24 inches. The best way to find out is to contact the RCCL Special Needs Department. You can reach them at this number:
