Excursions (with standard bus) are available on all cruise ships and are generally arranged on board. Adapted excursions are available in many ports. Whether they are provided through the cruise line itself or through our own independent suppliers in resort, we are able to arrange adapted excursions in many ports.
Restrictions do apply to tender ports and in some ports with large electric wheelchairs or scooters. We work very closely with the ports and cruise lines and can provide information on many ports as to if excursions are needed or if you can easily access the centre yourself, also we are able in many places to provide information on actual excursions. Please be aware if you are interested in adapted excursions this must be discussed with your Disabled Access Holidays sales advisor prior to booking as they cannot be provided in all ports and type and prices vary depending on cruise company you are sailing with.
