Q. Can I take my collapsible wheelchair or scooter on a shore excursion?

Yes, provided the wheelchair or scooter be collapsed and stored in the hold of coach and you are able to climb a few steps onto the coach. Please note you, or your companion, are responsible for collapsing the wheelchair or scooter and placing it on to the coach.

We do advise that if you are taking a wheelchair or scooter on any of our tours, that you choose suitable excursions from those listed under ‘Cruise Personaliser'.

Please note that our shore excursion program in the Caribbean will operate using minibuses as coaches are not available. Please see 'Can I take a wheelchair or scooter on a shore excursion in the Caribbean'? for further information.



Please refer to the ‘You need to know’ section of the P&O Cruises brochure where, under the headings ‘Disabilities & mobility’ and ‘Mobility ashore’, you will find details of factors to bear in mind before booking your excursions.

We have tried to give an idea of the physical conditions and general environment on each excursion in the description, but have not recommended particular excursions for those guests with reduced mobility or who use a wheelchair, as everyone has differing abilities. Generally, full size coaches are able to accommodate small, collapsible scooters and /or manual wheelchairs (a limited number per coach). The coach driver is, however, unable to assist with the loading of scooters or wheelchairs into the vehicle. Where minibuses / trolley trains are used to operate shore excursions, the storage space is insufficient to be able to accommodate wheelchairs or scooters. If you would like more details about a particular excursion, please speak to the Shore Excursion Manager on-board
