Caribbean and mobility scooter

Recommended Posts

We are booked on the Carnival Fantasy Journeys cruise for Sept 2021.  The ports are Key West, Grand Turk, Amber Cove, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel.  We are only familiar with Grand Turk.  How are the other ports for mobility scooters?  Are the sidewalks good enough to travel on?  Or must we get excursions (scooter accessible) in order to see anything?

Amber Cove Cruise Port is very accessible, but is a captured environment, much like the cruise port at Grand Turk. To get to any of the “real” Dominican Republic, you have to leave the cruise port,

 

Because bus stairs are problematic for me, we rented a SUV for the day and went exploring. (The rental location is in the cruise port- National/Alamo).

Thanks for the tips.  Not sure we want to drive though.  When they post the excursions maybe we can find one wheelchair accessible one.  I know they exist.

Grand Cayman is a tender port. The scooter may or may not be allowed on the tender.

We understand that as we've had that problem at Half Moon Cay.  We sat for two hours while they decided if they would do the tenders or cancel, and then they DID except no wheelchairs or scooters.
