Hey, it looks like you guys missed me - I have been away for awhile and see there hasn't been too much activity in this particular forum. So here is a new question to ponder:

I posted a message in the singles forum, but since I am planning another cruise for my mother and me, any suggestions for which of these class ships is better suited for wheelchair accessibility and handicap facilities?

Okay - doesn't anyone have an opinion or input on this matter????

Hi Suzi,
Sorry no one has responded to this post yet. I have thought about your question and while both class of ships receive high marks for their accessibility and facilities, I think I would lean toward the Voyager class for one reason. There are a limited number of elevators on the Radiance class. For some reason there is not a bank of elevators situated on the aft of the ship. This makes getting to the venues on the aft end of the ship sometimes a very long trek.

Actually, Nancy is correct. I checked my trusty Berlitz guide (Raoul introduced me to this particular page in another post) and it appears that the Voyager class ships are given an A (Recommended as most suitable for wheelchair passengers) while Radiance class ships are only iven a B (Reasonably accessible for wheelchair passengers)

Celebrity also ranked A's in their Millennium class ships. The Norwegian Star and Star Princess were the other two mass market ships that received "A"s.
