Cruise Guides for People with Mobility Challenges

Cruise Guides for People with Mobility ChallengesEarlier this month I received an email from Sally James, a freelance writer who has recently been working with one of the UK’s leading travel portals on a guide for people with disabilities, showing how even on a cruise they can enjoy full mobility and accessibility help.

Sally asked me if I would be interested in seeing what she has written, and of course I said “Yes.” And after looking it over, I thought the guides would be worth sharing on my blog.

Although I have mentioned some of these points in my 2-10-14 post about our Eastern Caribbean Cruise – “It’s All About MEE” – I think it’s great to have another person’s perspective!

The first link covers mobility equipment at sea, and the second is a general guide for disabled cruisers.

I asked Sally to tell me a little about herself and what inspired her to write these guides. In her own words:

“I worked in the travel industry for nearly two decades before taking a step back to spend more time with my family, [and] raise my daughters. I started writing to help bring some money in, so it’s natural to cover traveling. A few months ago I went on a cruise with my mother and sister. My sister lost the use of her legs in a car accident and [we] were unsure she would be able to enjoy the cruise as much as us, but we were pleasantly surprised. It gave me the idea to write about mobility equipment.”
