Default disembarking for extended period

My father who is handicapped and afraid to fly wants to come by cruise to visit us in Progreso, Mexico. Is it possible for him to disembark in Progreso, stay for 2-4 weeks and then return via another cruise?

Also, how easy is it for a person who is confined to a power chair to navigate on a cruise ship and is assistance available to get him into/out of bed? Are there rooms available that have grab bars, etc. in the bathroom?

I can't say with 100 % certainty, but I'd say it's VERY unlikely that this would be possible on any of the manistream cruise lines.

We've seen many power chairs on cruise ships, and they do have some handicap accessbile cabins. However counting on assistance from staff to get him out of bed could be problematic. You'd most likely have to send an assistant along with him if he chose to cruise.

If he booked two cruises he could probably do it, but no cruise line (except maybe Silversea) allows partial voyages.
