help for handicapped cruising

Recommended Posts

Hi all!!  My family and I (6) are going on a cruise to Kings Wharf in June.  Our son is recovering from brain cancer, and although he walks ok he uses either a wheelchair or (more often) a walker. I looked at what the ship has to offer but not many for people with handicaps.  Does anyone know of reputable private tour companies that could take us around the island or go to beach and can accompany either a wheelchair or walker??

Thank you for any help you can provide.

I did a quick online search for "accessible Bermuda excursions" and found this -


I would suggest looking and posting on the "disabled cruise travel" forum here on cc


and the Bermuda port of call forum on cc


if you haven't already, for suggestions.

Most of the larger ports have taxis that are handicap accessible. They can take you to wherever you want to go.

When we were in Bermuda we joined other cruisers we met on the ship and hired a van for the day and he took us wherever we wanted to go.  Driver even waited while we enjoyed lunch.  One of the men simply walked off ship and asked the drivers assembled on dock to take us.  He negotiated a rate first and then after checking with us, we were off for a great day.


Agree with post of checking specific boards.  I learned a lot on the Bermuda board.
