Having gained worldwide popularity, cruises are relaxing with non-stop activities and culinary delights to indulge in. Cruise ships function as floating hotels with nearly everything included in the price. All the work is done for you, which allows you to fully relax and enjoy yourself.

Special cruises are available for those with serious media conditions and who use assistance animals -- complete with a vet on board. Many cruise lines now offer accessibility information right on their websites. Before reserving space on a cruise ship, contact the cruise line with any additional questions you may have.

Keep these questions in mind to help determine the best cruise line for you.
  1. Are cabins fully mobility scooter accessible?
  2. Do cabins have low or no sills?
  3. Are all public restrooms handicap accessible?
  4. Will my mobility scooter fit on the ship's elevators?
  5. Will my mobility scooter fit through doorways on the ship?
  6. Are ramps available on the decks?
  7. May I travel alone?
Tomorrow we'll wrap up the series with a few mobility scooter travel tips from Amigo owner Shelley Peterman Schwarz.

Thank you so much for sharing your experiences with us. I've been trying to get discounted first class airline tickets online for a more comfortable trip.

Thanks for these tips on traveling with your scooter. My best route is to load it in a SUV truck.
