Accessible cruises: A vacation for the whole family

Accessible cruises: A vacation for the whole family lists accessible cruises for those with impairments


Looking for a holiday option that includes the entire family—even Great Aunt Irma? Houston-based travel agency Vacations To Go has made it easier to find a cruise ship that’s accessible to everyone—even those with disabilities and medical conditions. Its website,, offers a “special needs” search for customers with limited mobility, diabetes, vision or hearing impairments or who use oxygen tanks. Customers can search for ships with specific services like sign language interpreters and braille menus. The site lists the ships with the services you need by price, so you can still search for good deals. “Before, there was no easy way to find this information,” says Kari Lee, director of Vacations To Go’s special needs department.
