Benefits of booking with DisabledHolidays.com...
Rising from the desert sand, the cities of the Middle East gleam in the hot sun – towering testaments to the ingenuity of the designers and builders of the vast skyscrapers that mark the horizon.
The Middle East has changed beyond all recognition in the past century – thanks mainly to the discovery of oil which has made the small states that make up the region unimaginably wealthy. Prior to this recent development, the Middle East was largely traditional desert with farmers, traders plying the wares across the region and fishermen taking advantage of the fertile Gulf waters.
The Middle East is a mix of traditional eastern cultures and modern western influences. For example, you’ll find tall glass sky scrapers with traditional Middle Eastern decor and flourishes. Away from the cities, you’ll find more traditional Middle Eastern culture with camel racing and hunting with falcons amongst the pastimes enjoyed by locals.
Expect to find staple ingredients of olives and olive oil, pitas, honey, sesame seeds, dates, sumac, chickpeas, mint and parsley throughout the Middle East. Lamb is the favoured meat and you can find some wonderful dishes - often featuring spiced, grilled lamb on kebab skewers.
From bow to stern, discover 14 spacious decks on which to relax and unwind; to indulge in pleasures and activities you never normally have time for. Opulent public areas, extravagant dining rooms, ballrooms, theatres and lounges.
We can offer disabled passengers the pleasure of sailing on Cunard to a number of worldwide destinations, offering adapted cabins on accessible ships and a number of shore excursions and pursuits.

Wheelchair Accessible Cabins
There are over 30 fully accessible cabins across Cunard’s ships and many more partially accessible cabins in a wide variety of categories. You can choose an inside or ocean view cabin, deluxe balcony cabin, junior suite or even the Queens Suite.
Are all ships suitable for Wheelchair users?
All ships within the fleet can cater for the needs of those who are dependent on a wheelchair or scooter for mobility issues, including specially adapted staterooms with wide access doors, lower placed sinks and units and hand rails.
There may be, on occasion where going ashore would be by tender. In these instances, if you are confined to a wheelchair or similar equipment, you will not be able to go ashore.
Please note – None of the Cunard Vessels have a pool hoist
Queen Mary 2 - shower stools, raised toilet seats and commodes.
Queen Elizabeth - Raised toilet seats, commodes and bath chairs.
Queen Victoria - shower stools, raised toilet seats and commodes.
Can I bring my own hoist?
Yes, however you will need to check that the hoist is compatible with the vessels electrical supply. The standard electrical supply in the United Kingdom is 50HZ (cycles) and 240V so you will need to check with the manufacturer, or supplier, that the item is safe to use and that the overall performance will not be affected or damaged at 60HZ: Queen Elizabeth/Queen Mary 2/Queen Victoria: 220V / 110V / 60HZ.
Please contact the Pursers Desk once you have embarked the vessel in order for the Electrical Officer to test your equipment prior to sailing. We would suggest you check in no later than the allocated time on your ticket to ensure that you have enough time to do this. You will be responsible for the carriage and installation of your own electrical equipment and your hoist must remain in your stateroom at all times.Can I disembark at every port if I am a full time wheelchair user?
Due to the extreme tidal nature and the gangway configurations required to cope with large varying height differences between the quay and the gun-port doors, there is a strong chance that full time and/or part time wheelchair users may not be able to go ashore in ports including, but not limited too; Hamburg, Zeebrugge, Canary Island and French and Spanish Atlantic ports (not an exhaustive list). This is in the interest of the guest's safety.
Can I travel alone if I use a wheelchair or mobility scooter?
For those guests requiring the use of a wheelchair or scooter it is not a condition that you travel with a companion. However, although the crew are always very helpful, they are unable to assist you in moving around the vessel or in any personal day-to-day tasks. For this reason we would suggest you are accompanied by a personal assistant / travelling companion to provide these services.
What facilities do you have on board for deaf or the hard of hearing?
Wireless Head Phones are available on all 3 liners. The locations are as follows;
Queen Mary 2 - Royal Court Theatre, Queens Room, Illuminations Theatre and Connex room 6
Queen Elizabeth - Royal Court Theatre and Queens Room.

All head sets can be obtained from the Pursers Desk.
Cunard can also supply with prior notice to sailing the ships safety drill in printed format. The liners safety drill is also communicated on the cabin TV with subtitles.
