Most disabilities don’t require help/assistance and guests are perfectly capable to travel alone. However for visually or hearing impaired guests, some Cruise Lines cabins are not fitted with suitable emergency equipment, therefore it is recommended passengers are accompanied by a companion to assist in the event of an emergency. This can vary from Cruise Line to Cruise Line and can even be dependent on the vessel, so we will always be required to check with the Cruise Line should you wish to travel alone. We would always like to check with the Cruise Line before confirming your booking. Rule of thumb, should you require assistance at home for daily tasks, then you will require assistance onboard from a companion or assistant. Ships Crew will not be able to assist you.
