We are all guilty for pre-judgements and misconceptions in life. One of my biggest ones when it came to travel was that cruises were firstly expensive, and secondly filled with elegant elderly people and crazy kids – not my favourite mixture.
I’ve just finished a £350 week-long cruise around the Mediterranean with plenty of fun-loving travellers around my age. I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy to be proved wrong!
A fully wheelchair accessible experience with costa cruises, our trip took us to the ports of Civitavecchia, Savona, Marseille, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca and Palermo. Our cabin had a desk and plenty of wheelchair turning circle space, along with a spacious bathroom with a wheel-in shower, lowered sink and large mirror. The boat itself was spectacular, with 6 restaurants, 9 bars, a theatre, a cinema, a casino, pools, spas and hot tubs, and even a shopping street, Lazer quest and a racing car simulator! They’re really not lying when they say cruise ships are floating towns.
If you fancy a cruise in the near future, I can assure you that you’ll have loads of fun, whatever your age! There’s nothing quite like waking up in a different country, and the accessibility on offer to disabled guests like me is really second-to-none.
