Do you offer accessible shore excursions?
Yes, we offer two options: “Easy” tours and private shore excursions with accessible transportation.
- Easy tours, designed for full-time wheelchair users, are available in various European and Caribbean ports of call. Each Easy Tour vehicle features an access ramp (or lift where available) to accommodate a limited number of wheelchairs.
- Private excursions with accessible transportation may be arranged at certain non-U.S. ports at an additional cost.
How do I find and book accessible shore excursions?
To find accessible shore excursions on our website and brochures, look for the word “Easy” or the wheelchair symbol next to the tour name. Please submit requests for Easy tours at least 10 business days prior to sailing and private excursions at least 21 days prior to [email protected]
