There’s nothing better than having a nice holiday to look forward to! If you’re not sure what type of holiday you fancy – whether it be it a staycation, a beach holiday or a cruise – Quingo Scooters have been sharing some holiday ideas!
This week we’re looking at cruise holidays, with Royal Caribbean cruises. Cruises are great if you’re a real explorer who would love nothing more than to see more than just the one place on your holiday. They’re also extremely relaxing too – which can only be a good thing!
Why Royal Caribbean?
If you’re a regular cruise goer or you fancy one for the first time, Royal Caribbean are a great choice as their aim is to make all mobility impaired guests as comfortable as possible with absolute ease.
All their cruise ships have spacious corridors that can accommodate 180 degree turns from your mobility scooter. Most decks are accessible through automatic doors, and all public rooms feature entrances with gradual inclines.
Royal Caribbean welcome you to bring along your own mobility scooter, with plenty of space in your stateroom to allow for charging and storing. The entrance doors to the accessible state rooms are 32-34 inches wide (depending on the room) to ensure that they can accommodate larger items of equipment.
Priority boarding is offered for mobility scooter users on embarking the ship, with assistance available from staff if it is required. There are hoists for one pool and one whirlpool on each ship in the fleet.
Where can I go?
There are a number of breathtakingly beautiful regions all over the world that you can visit with Royal Caribbean:
- Australia & New Zealand
- Bahamas & Bermuda
- Canada & Alaska
- Northern Europe
- South America
The accessible state rooms on board the Royal Caribbean cruise ships have all the facilities you need for a comfortable and relaxed stay. The rooms offer a five foot turning radius in sleeping areas, bathroom and sitting areas for easy manoeuvrability of mobility scooters.
In the bathroom you’ll find ramped thresholds with lots of grab bars and lowered sinks. In the roll in shower there are fold down seats and hand-held showerheads.
In the room you’ll find lowered safes for easy access, and a fully accessible balcony so that you can enjoy that amazing view.
Cruises start from just £299 per person in 2016, and all the information you need can be found on the Royal Caribbean website.
