Go for the newer ships and you will be fine particularly if you ask and get a specially adapted cabin for disabled people. Also don't be afraid to fly to your destination as airlines are very helpful with wheelchair passengers if you let them know in advance as well children. regards ....Nei.

Where did that come from? Surely a question like that deserves a little more than the applied invective. I am willing to stand my ground on any topic and if proved wrong apologise, are you? ....Neil.

Yes airports do help but Oh my god the waits are even worse for disabled more often than not and any delays are a nightmare. Go from Southampton, dover or Harwich. Park car, walk on ship ! Keep to a smaller ship 70,000 tons as the bigger ones 2 - 3,000 passengers, can be overwhelming and exhausting to get around even for the able ! I reccomend P&O (Oceana and Oriana) and Princess, because of the trained childrens staff (she will love it)and the ambience. Sea Princess is a lovely ship and as it deals in dollars on board it is great with the exchange rat at present. Just make sure you make your needs clear when you book and all will be well - enjoy .

Yes, I can recommend P & O too - I would be reluctant to fly again as it is SO simple to embark from Southampton. Their ships are fab for young children (mine love the clubs!) and there are always loads of wheelchair users on board. The staff always seem to be very helpful to passengers with mobility problems too.
