Accessibility

Princess has long placed a high priority on making cruise vacations accessible for all guests, including those with disabilities. The company initiated its award-winning Princess AccessSM program in 1992 to raise the standards of cruise ship accessibility across the fleet, while keeping in mind the constraints and special considerations inherent to a ship at sea. Even before this time, however, Princes’ well-recognized guest service extended to accessible cruising. In 1984, Royal Princess debuted as the line’s first ship designed with facilities specifically for guests with physical disabilities, and between 1989 and 1992, three more ships debuted with accessible staterooms.

Wheelchair-accessible Princess cruise ship cabin

Wheelchair-accessible cabins
Today, the Princess fleet offers more than 350 wheelchair-accessible cabins. Each vessel features up to 31 accessible cabins, across a variety of stateroom categories. These rooms are designed for wheelchair manoeuvrability, with widened doorways into both the cabin and its bathroom; wheel-in showers, hand-held showerheads and bath distress alarms; as well as lowered closet railings, sinks, and handrails; and removed or revamped thresholds. Additional equipment is also available on request, such as toilet seat raisers, shower stools and bedboards.

Wheelchair users will find access-friendly design across most of the Princess fleet, making it easy to enjoy each vessel’s restaurants, theatres, spas, lounges and open deck space. Elevators have generous 36- to 42-inch doorways, and wheelchair seating is available in show lounges and other public spaces.

Sight and hearing disabilities
Guests with sight and hearing disabilities will find vessels equipped with such helpful features as Braille elevator call buttons, audible arrival sounds and infrared listening assistance systems in the Princess theatres. ADA "all in one" kits are available upon request -- featuring telephone amplifiers, visual smoke detectors, door knock sensors, text telephones (TDD) and other aids. In-cabin movies feature close captioning, and ship libraries feature a selection of books on tape.

Princess ships also welcome service animals, and have hosted a variety of such special helpers, including seeing-eye dogs and hearing-assistance dogs. Emotional support animals are not recognized by the Department of Justice and therefore are not permitted on Princess vessels or in our lodges.

On shore
On shore, Princess continues to innovate accessibility for guests. Special gangway mechanisms on most ships simplify embarkation and disembarkation for wheelchair guests in many world-wide ports. While onshore facilities and levels of access vary, Princess has made efforts to expand accessible offerings by working with local service providers. In St. Thomas, for example, Princess was instrumental in developing tours featuring the island’s only accessible trolley. The line’s own private beach call in the Bahamas, Princess Cays, features ramps for easier access. Guests will find guidelines in Princess’ shore excursion listings to indicate the level of access for each tour.

Alaska cruisetour guests will find their vacations accessible as well. All of Princess’ custom-built Alaska wilderness lodges meet ADA guidelines, with accessible rooms and public spaces. The company’s exclusive Midnight Sun Express® railcars also offer access to the lower levels of the car, including dining areas and outside observation platforms.
