Disabled Facilities

Scenic Tours welcomes disabled guests but wishes all guests to understand that challenges will exist on-board and during shore excursions. While the ships have elevators, they do not service each deck. Furthermore, you should be aware that the ships also have split-level decks and/or significant thresholds that could make movement difficult. Under appropriate circumstances guests are permitted to use collapsible wheelchairs on-board. Shore excursions may require movement over cobblestones or up and down stairs; accordingly, guests with limited mobility will require the services of a responsible companion to be travelling with them, since crew availability is severely limited. Guests who have any medical, physical or other special needs should contact the travel advisors for further information and also view the deck plans to gain an understanding of the layout of any particular ship.
