We had a neighboring cabin in just that circumstance. If it isn't needed by someone with a disability, then why not enjoy it?

I've been assigned (didn't request it) a handicapped room and am not handicapped. I leave in a week and half! I'd gladly give it up to someone who needed it, but plan to enjoy it if it's not needed.

Is the room larger than a regular cabin?

Yes it is. Very roomy & the shower is huge compared to regular cabins.

Hi dspcentury,

If you got this cabin after the final payment date it's fine to keep it.

You might want to contact RCL and let them know that you'll move to a similar or better cabin if someone HC needs yours. That probably won't happen after the final payment date, but it would be the nice thing to do!

Default handicap cabin

Does anyone have any tips on how to get a handicap room at a very late date. We booked one year ago, and did not need a handicap cabin, but my husband is now in a wheelchair and I have been getting the run around about changing to a handicap room. I was told they could check to see if there was one booked that was not needed, but now can't get anyone to help me with that. I have spent way too much time on the phone with RCCL. Going on Mariner, 3/26/06. Can't wait.
Thanks, Cheryl

Cheryl......
If you booked with a travel agent you should let them make the calls. I know that it is late but now that your husband has a wheelchair they must provide a wheelchair accessible room for him. Please let me know how you made out.

Im sorry to say but i requested a handicap room for my mother who is 85 years old and is booked with a group and myself on sept 23- oct 7, 2006 on the radiance of the seas to hawaii. I provided the proper documentation from her doctors o prove she is handicap and in need of the room. Well, all hc rooms were gone and we are out of luck! The cruiseline does NOT have to provide a handicap person wheelchair accessiblity> This goes to prove it. Needless to say, we are still cruising on this date and i will be providing my mother the assistance she will need, whether it be to be lifted from the wheelchair and carried to the inside of the cabin, or whatever the case may be. I feel i am honored to still have my mother to be able to enjoy a cruise with me, so whatever it will take she will be on that cruise! good luck with your situation!

Your mother is lucky to have such a caring son. I hope you have a wonderful time on your cruise. We will make the best out of what ever room we end up with. You have the right attitude. We are there to have some family fun, and that is what we plan to do.
