Default PHOTO'S OF HANDICAP ROOMS ON PRINCESS/OTHER CRUISE LINES

We are considering booking one of the Handicap cabins on Princess for future cruises. My wife has MS and it has gotten to the point where
she is too weak and having trouble with the standard cabins or mini suites
we have traveled in before. Does anyone have some photos of how the Princess cabins are set up? Other cruise lines?

We have been reluctant to book one of the few number of cabins, however it has come to the point, if we are to still go cruising the cabins
need to be more friendly to her needs.

Thanks for the input..

Hi rtlk,

If you go to webshots and type in "handicap cabins" you'll find more pictures!

I hope you and your DW have a wonderful cruise!

she will have no trouble I have MS and my wife is Blind, we found the disabled cabins on the sea princess great. No stepping over bulk heads to get in the bathroom, lots of grab rails, plus lots of space in there for 2 if you need to help

Plenty of room for a wheel chair or shooter to move round in the room as well

Fern has posted a good link to photos

Just off the RCI Freedom Of The Seas and was upgraded to a cabin for handicapped cruisers (that was unbooked). There is plenty of room and the bathroom has handrails and a fold down seat in the shower, and also a phone. I'm sure Princess has similar cabins.
