CruiseMates' Readers Cruise Reviews


Regent Seven Seas Cruises Seven Seas Mariner by Daniel Holleb Australia November 7, 2005

CRUISING FOR THE DISABLED!

I am writing to make your readers aware of just how excellent a line Regent is when it comes to passengers with disabilities. Being a fulltime 3-wheel scooter user, I can tell you from experience that the crew and staff on board go over and beyond the normal when it comes to assistance in any aspect of the cruise experience. They actually found me on many stops at smaller South Pacific Islands to transport me and my chair, via tender, as well as ports where we docked but the gangway was to steep to navigated my chair driving down.

On board, there is only one spot thats was non-accessible and that was the hot tubs, but as of NOV 2005, the line was going to be installing power chair hoists on all the fleet so ALL passengers could enjoy hot tub soaking. I feel this is yet one more example of how they totally care for any and ALL passengers as with the design and aceessibilty of the staterooms/suites.

Good luck to my fellow travelers with physical challenges, check them out and you too will be a loyal Radisson/Regent cruiser.
