You can get help if you’re disabled and travelling on any of the following:
- a cruise ship that’s leaving from a port within the UK
- a ferry that’s leaving from or going to a port within the UK
- a local ferry service, for example by river bus
If you need to make specific arrangements for your journey (for example if you have certain accommodation or seating requirements), you should tell the cruise line, ferry service, travel agent or tour operator at least 48 hours before departure.
Travelling with a carer
You should let the cruise line or ferry service know if you need to travel with a carer. On a ferry, your carer might be able to travel for free.
Help getting on and off
Tell the cruise line or ferry service at least 48 hours before departure if you need help getting on and off the ship.
