David Posted December 23, 2008 Share Posted December 23, 2008 Since the demise of Speedferries I have been researching alternative car ferry routes across the channel for me as a wheelchair user.My son recently came over on the Norman Voyager, and told me that it was not wheelchair friendly which surprised me on a new ferry. He said that the passenger lift from the open air car deck arrived at a landing half way between decks, with flights of stairs to go either up or down, so LD Lines are out. He also told me that there was no full wheelchair access once on the passenger deck.I am now looking at the Calais/Dover route. I do not like the tunnel as I cannot get the car door open far enough to get out of the car once parked on the train, and toilet access on the train is difficult.Does anyone have experience of using a wheelchair on either P&O or SeaFrance? Are there any pitfalls in the booking process, is there anything particular to request, and are there problems on the vessels?Thanks in advance,David Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
