P&O Cruises World Cruising has amended their policy on the carriage of mobility aids including wheelchairs and scooters effective as of the 2013 northern hemisphere summer onwards.
All mobility aids must now be stored inside cabins when not in use so as to ensure the clear passage and safety of guests in walkways and public areas.
“If a passenger requires the use of a mobility scooter they should select either a wheelchair accessible cabin, or suite or mini-suite accommodation when making their booking,” a P&O Cruise spokesperson said in a statement.
“Alternatively, where suitable, passengers can bring a collapsible wheelchair which can safely be stored inside any cabin.”
