If you use a mobility scooter, then you have postponed going on a cruise ship for a while now since you must have assumed that you are not allowed to take it on board, or it is just because you can’t do all the required walking and standing.
Here is the good news: yes, you can take it on a cruise ship and it is easier than you think. In fact, you will be having a stress-free cruise vacation with only one concern, and it is how to get a parking space in the dining room.
The scooter can give you the ability to sail on the open seas without the need of standing on your feet all day long. It will give you access to enjoy the flexibility and freedom to go around the entire ship. Plus, do you know how fun it is to ride a scooter around a cruise ship?
You don’t have to be “officially disabled” to use a mobility scooter on a cruise ship
Any mobility device is allowed on a cruise ship like walkers and wheelchairs. Having a smooth, comfortable cruise vacation is the main goal, so whether you are pre/post surgery, slow walker, have an injury, or you get tired easily.
You are totally allowed you to use a mobility scooter. If you can’t or don’t want to bring yours, you can always rent one by asking your travel agent. You will find it in your stateroom ready to roll!
You can rent a mobility scooter and it will be in your cabin
If you have a mobility scooter, you can bring it with you and ride from the car (cab) onto the ship, but remember that the gangways to the ship are steep, so you may have to walk and push it at some point.
