London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) August 29, 2012 -- Cruise.co.uk has a released an updated guide to disabilities facilities on cruises. The guide is designed to assist members of the cruising community who are disabled or travelling with a disabled person in their booking decisions by letting them know what facilities are available for them on board and ashore.
Cruising for the physically challenged offers one off the most hassle-free holidays possible. But it is important to choose the right cruise and prepare in advance. Aware that disabilities come in many forms Cruise.co.uk has also provided information on the services for those with visual and hearing impairments. Details of whether or not there is Braille Signage on board ships and what in cabin alert signals are available to keep the passenger as safe as possible.
The move is a welcome push towards ensuring that disabled passengers receive as much information as they can to help them make informed decisions when booking their cruise. This is why cruisers can gain precious information on their cruise ship before boarding. They will get answers to questions such as: if the cruise line provides a wheelchair or scooter? Are they disabled cabins on board? A service animal? Braille on board?
Speaking on the importance of the guide, Seamus Conlon, Managing Director of Cruise.co.uk, stated that ' Recent news of shifting policy towards disabled access on cruise ships means that it's more important now than it ever was to keep disabled passengers updated and informed. Cruise lines such as P&O have recently changed their policy over electric wheelchair and scooter son board their ships, and whilst this has been controversial in a few months' time this will have been forgotten and any disabled cruisers who missed the mews will be left without any information."
