Our Accessible Land Discoveries are classified in two levels:
Level I Land Discoveries
This level is geared for guests who are able to walk short distances, can negotiate motor coach steps and travel with a standard manual collapsible wheelchair or a folding cane. Most of these tours can accommodate a manual collapsible wheelchair or a folding cane as long as guests can negotiate coach steps to access the vehicle.
Guests traveling with a collapsible scooter must submit their collapsible scooter information and dimensions to shorexaccess@AzamaraClubCruises.com so that we may further inquire with the tour operator if the collapsible scooter can be accommodated.
It is strongly recommended that our limited mobility guests travel with an able-bodied companion in order to assist with the loading/unloading of the wheelchair/scooter.
NOTE: Please be advised that motorized scooters/wheelchairs may or may not be accommodated depending upon their size and weight.
Level II Land Discoveries
This level is for those guests that are unable to walk short distances, cannot negotiate motor coach steps and who travel with a non-collapsible wheelchair/scooter.
NOTE: Please keep in mind that most of the motor coaches and/or transportation used for Land Discoveries are not equipped with ramps and/or lifts. In turn, this may require you to select a private arrangement via Private Accessible Vehicles (with ramp or lift.) Use of these arrangements is highly suggested and may be available in some ports and at an additional cost.
If your itinerary includes Tendering Ports, we encourage you to contact our Access Department at Special_Needs@AzamaraClubCruises.com or by calling (866) 592-7225 for tendering procedures. Under certain circumstances, guests may experience difficulties in disembarking the ship and boarding the tenders due to weather or other unforeseen conditions.
NOTE: Bear in mind that ADA regulations and guidelines do not apply outside of the United States. Therefore, you may experience some differences with transportation, venue access, etc. Not all destinations offer Accessible shore excursions.
