Rich, I do not know for sure about that but I am sure that all your new modern ships will cater to wheelchairs. On all the cruises that we have been on it is very common to see wheelchairs all through the ship. I am sure that you will not have any problems.
18 cruises and counting!!!!!!

There are resources for some accessible tours in some of these ports, but this information is not available on this site. You may want to try a different discussion board site for disabled cruisers.

Dont know about the ship as far as getting around. My husbands manual chair has no problems on the ship. Ports of Call are another thing. What with cobbled streets and slanted streets, he no longer go ashore. He has MS also. Havensight in St. Thomas is partly accessable. I would worry more about the heat and humidity, which knocks my husband for a loop if he is out to long. Holland America is the only line I know of that offers special tours for the handicapped. St Thomas does have a drive tour with a handicapped accessable mini bus, you will have to research this on your own, as not all lines offer it.
