Hi
I have sailed both Princess and
Carnival in a wheelchair. I found the
size of doors and cabin size about
the same.If I had to choose I would go
with Princess. I also note they have recently
added a new "Access Compliance Manager"
and have added a wheelchair tour to
the available shore excursions on St Thomas
on some trips.Good start.
Whats your favorite line for Wheelchair
travel. Bill Tuohey

Hi Bill!
Just returned from the Celebrity Constellation 2 week Baltic Cruise. I walk with a walker, and not able to get a handicapped room. I don't like them not having a "wait list", and you have to just keep calling. I wasn't able to see a handicapped room, so can't comment on that. The Constellation is 967 feet long. On deck 7, you can go from the bow to the rear of the ship with just 3 easy turns, which we did quite a few times. Found it so much easier than trying to normal public decks. Constellation will also reserve front seats for you on the bus tours. I'll be doing a review about shore excursions and the ship within the next few days. The staff really acknowledges and respects handicapped people. Unfortunately, can't say the same about the passengers, who always tried pushing and shoving. Ask for a table towards the rear of the dining room, or should I say closest to the door. When you start to go aft by the Captain's table, it could get a little tight, or you could do second level that appeared to have more space. Look for my review in a few days, and if I can answer anymore questions, will be happy to do so. We've also sailed Princess several times and love it. One thing superior with Constellation, is when opening stateroom door, it will stay open with a latch so you're not fighting a door when you're trying to get in.
