Cabin:

This was a short three night cruise visiting Belgium and France and was booked for our wedding anniversary. My Wife is disabled and a wheel chair user so I have commented on each part on any good and bad experiences in each of the sections.

Hotel

We stayed at the IBIS budget in Southampton, which is as basic as it gets but it was clean and well located, on 10 minutes from the dock gates.

Cabin Review

As an accessible room, it is very spacious and easy to navigate in a wheel chair. The balcony is fully accessible with an automatic ramp for wheel chairs to get out.The only downside is that the ramp takes most of the balcony which means that you have to sit on a slope which is not a major issue but noticeable. It is a shame that they could not take a little bit of the space from the front of the ship to enlarge the balcony as this was not allocated to any rooms and would allow a small seating area that was flat.The bathroom was very good with a walk in shower which had a fitted bench that could be folded flat against the wall.We received a bottle on sparkling wine which was on ice when we arrived and fresh ice was supplied twice a day which was welcomed.The room attendant was very good and attentive but not intrusive and the room was made up and turned down quickly while we were away.Luggage was brought into your room and not left outside which was nice. Overall the room is very good but is positioned at the front of the boat which means walking down a long corridor.MY main complaint on all boats is that a manual wheelchair does not fit in the gap between the wall and the cleaning trollies that always seem to be in the corridor. I know that they have to clean but it does make life difficult.
