Q. How can I book a Shore Experience/Excursion?

Accessible Shore Excursions are:

  • Sent to Guests who cannot board a coach or are full time wheelchair users
  • They will only be sent to the guest if the guest has completed a Medical/Mobility questionnaire and advised us of this
  • They are sent 12 weeks and then again at 4 weeks prior to departure via email.
  • Agent booking – If the passengers email address has been entered the information will be sent to them, if not the information will go to the agents email address.
  • Direct Booking - Information will automatically be emailed if the direct email address has been entered or if there is no email address the information will be posted
  • Not suitable for mobility scooter users - Please see Can I take an electric wheelchair or scooter in an accessible vehicle?

What date are they sent?

We have put the document together for all ships now, instead of ship specific. The information is up to 2020, but excludes Iona at the moment. Once we have information for Iona we will update again. 

The 'Date to Run Second Report' column is the date a second report is ran (by the accessible shore excursions team) to pick up any guests who have booked after the first report has been run. This is run 4 weeks prior to sailing.

If a guest books a cruise after the date in the 'Date to Run Second Report' column then please email the accessible shore excursions team (shoremobilityinfo/OPS/CarnivalUK) with the Guests name, booking reference and a request for the excursion details to be sent to them. This is because no more reports will be run.
