I’m not sure where to start as there are so many points to raise. Let’s start with the cabin.

Balcony cabin (accessible)

I’m confined to a wheelchair chair as any movement of the ship and I will fall, although I can walk with a walking frame or wheeled walker. On arrival at the cabin we had to request that the chair and table be removed as there were insufficient space for my wheelchair. On checking the storage space for clothing, baring in mind we are on the ship for 99 days, there was 2 very small drawer units, a cupboard underneath the dressing table, and a small wardrobe with a safe and life jackets in. So insufficient room to store clothes so some clothes had to be left in the cases stored under the bed and that was an issue as we are both disabled and have difficulty getting down or back up from getting case’s from under the bed. The amount of space between the bed and bulkhead wall was just over a metre and often we could catch the bed shunting across the room. On occasion we would notice metal coils on the floor and it became apparent that the wheels of my wheelchair were scuffing the metal skirting board chamfering the top edge of the skirting boards.
