There is limited capability for wheelchair and mobility devices access. The crew will make every effort to ensure wheelchair users can come on board. Motorised wheelchairs in particular are very difficult as crew have to lift them on board. In most cases top deck access is available as the wheelchair can be wheeled or lifted up the gangway and this allows disembarkation from the top deck on outlying wharves.
