I would like to get a list of those cruise lines that have rooms that are designed to accomidate disabled passengers. Do they charge more for the rooms and do they have rest rooms that are handicappd accessable in the common areas...casino,theatre and dining rooms. Thank you so much for ur help :?:
Just from looking at Royal Caribbean's Deck plans, there are specific rooms that are designated as wheelchair/handicap rooms. So I can only assume that they have the rest of the ship with areas that are handicap ready also. I am baseing this on the Radiance class ships, have not looked at their other size ships to verify them. You could check them out on their web site @ rccl.com. don't know about any other cruise lines, but I would assume they would be the same too.

While we don't need an accessible cabin (yet!) from what I've seen all of the major cruise lines have handicap cabins available. As far as I know they don't cost more than a regular cabin in the same category.
There are not very many of these cabins available, so book early to get one!
On all our cruises I've found that the public restrooms are accessible. The only problem may be opening the door to get out! I've never understood why the doors to the restrooms don't just "swing"!
For more information you can post on the "Disabled Cruising" site here:
We have had handicapped rooms the past 3 cruises we were on. I have to use a wheel chair and need this type of cabin. We have sailed Royal Caribbean, Carnival & Celebrity. The newer ships have more accessible cabins and are larger then the older ships. Royal Caribbean has had the BEST cabins! Please email me with specific questions. I will be happy to share my experience with you. Remember one thing - these cabins are few & far between so you need to book early to get one of these cabins! firstname.lastname@example.org
