My wife and I are taking a caribbean cruise in Nov which will include a trip through one of the locks of the Panama Canal. We have been told one of the shore excursions that is a must do is the train excursion to the Pacific side and back to the ship. My wife is able to walk very short distances but most of the time uses a wheel chair or travel scooter. We will be taking her travel scooter with us. Does anyone know if the train excursion is able to accomodate travel scooters? If not would it be possible to take a wheel chair which we could obtain from the ship to use for the day?

Hi Retchem and welcome to Cruise-Chat!

We took the train ride a few years ago when we went to Panama. It was a nice excursion, but I don't remember whether it was handicap accessible. You may want to call the cruise line (or have your travel agent call) and ask them.

Usually the excursion booklet you receive from the cruiseline, or download off the internet, will mention restrictions. But I would call and make sure what accommodations are available.

Enjoy planning for your cruise! It is an exciting part of the total experience!

Thanks Nadine. We will contact RCL and see what information they can give us about handicap access for the train.
