Norwegian Special Needs Information

Spacer
NCL strongly believes that guests with special needs are indeed special. Each ship offers designated staterooms with wider doorways and bathrooms that will accommodate wheelchairs and staterooms with lights and under-pillow vibrating alarms for guests with hearing impairments. Guide dogs are permitted on all NCL ships. Many staterooms have refrigerators that can be used to store medications that must be kept cold. Guests who need oxygen or require oxygen therapy are welcome on all NCL ships; they must supply their own oxygen

Any physical disability or request requiring special treatment or attention must be reported to NCL's Passenger Courtesy Department when the reservation is made. NCL reserves the right to refuse or to revoke passage to anyone in such physical or mental condition as to be unfit for travel or who, in the judgment of the carrier, may endanger the safety or comfort of other guests.

Guests with disabilities must be self-sufficient and should travel with a another guest who can provide assistance during the cruise.

Hearing Impairments
Select staterooms are available on most ships for guests with hearing disabilities. Among the adaptive devices to make their cruise more enjoyable are in-stateroom lights and vibrating alarms that fit under a pillow and alert the guest to a doorbell, phone or emergency situation.

Oxygen
Guests who need oxygen or require oxygen therapy must supply their own oxygen.

Wheelchair Users
Guests must provide their own wheelchairs. Only collapsible, three-wheel "Amigo-type" wheelchairs can be brought on board the ship. The chairs must be powered by gel-cell batteries. Due to safety regulations, NCL will not accept any wet-cell or acid battery-powered wheelchairs on board the ships. The wheelchair battery recharger must be adaptable to 110 voltage.

Wheelchairs may not be used to transfer from the ship to a tender. Guests in wheelchairs may not be able to participate in all shore excursions.

NCL maintains a limited number of wheelchairs on our private island, Great Stirrup Cay, that are specially designed for use on sand. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis. * Any physical disability or medical condition that requires special treatment or attention must be reported to NCL's Passenger Courtesy Department when the reservation is made.

NCL has the right to refuse or revoke passage to anyone who, in its judgment, is in a physical or mental condition unfit for travel or who may require care beyond that which NCL can provide.
NCL reserves the right to deny participation in certain activities based on past or present medical conditions. For questions about eligibility, please contact our Passenger Courtesy Department.
All passengers with disabilities must be self-sufficient and should travel with a passenger who will provide any assistance needed during the cruise or in the event of an emergency.

Passengers who use a wheelchair must provide their own small, collapsible type and may find certain areas of the ship inaccessible. Please note that there is a 5"-6" riser in regular stateroom bathrooms, and bathroom doors are 20"-22" wide. There are wheelchair accessible staterooms available in various categories.
