We will be cruising in the last week of November on the Sovereign of the Seas. Has anyone done it in a wheelchair ? Did you find it difficult or easy ? What about accessibility on tenders and CoCo Cay ? What about Nassau ? Are the rooms truly accessible ? Can I take a shower ? Are there handrails by the toilets ? Accessible washrooms other than in your room ? Getting on or off the ship ? Thanks for any info you have

I am not in a chair but have been the partner with someone that was. The tender staff will make sure that your journey on the tender is safe and enjoyable. They will lift you onto the tender and then your chair. Don't worry about it.

As far as Coco Cay goes, I have not been there with someone in a chair but suspect that they have "sand chairs" available for you. They do on Labadee, so I am sure they will on Coco Cay. Sand chairs are like wheel chairs built for the beach. You will love them.

<< What about Nassau ?>>

Nassau is very accessible


Again, I haven't taken the Sovereign of the Seas with a person in a chair, but I am sure that if you are booked into a cabin designated for those in a chair, it will be just fine.


You will find them very accessable if you have booked an accessible cabin.


I am not sure about the Sovereign. Maybe someone can jump in here.


No problem. You will have priority and avoid the crowds. Be sure to touch base with the passenger relations desk.

Have a great cruise and let us know how it went.

Hi Smilinsooz,
Accessible staterooms on the Sovereign have ramped bathroom thresholds, bathroom grab bars, lowered sink and vanity, roll-in showers, fold-down shower stool, hand-held showerheads, raised toilet seats and lowered closet bars.

As for the public restrooms, there will be accessible facilities.
