Special Needs Group adds RCCL inventory

By Kate Rice
The Special Needs Group is adding ships of the three brands that are part of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. to its website.

The site will include accessibility information for Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Club Cruises ships. It will include the Quantum of the Seas, which is scheduled to begin sailing in November 2014.

The site provides the number of staterooms for passengers with disabilities, and the features of those staterooms. It describes the accessibility of food and beverage venues and recreational facilities.

Special Needs Group is phasing in information brand by brand, beginning with Royal Caribbean, followed by Celebrity and Azamara.

On Aug. 5, Special Needs Group said it will launch accessibility information about Holland America Line.

All ships in the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet were launched on the portal in April.

Earlier this year, Special Needs Group also added Ship Accessibility Checklist, Mobility Scooter/Power Chair Etiquette and Scooter/Power Chair Do's and Don'ts to assist travel agents who serve Americans with disabilities and special needs. Only certified agents can access this information. 

Special Needs Group rents wheelchairs, scooters, oxygen tanks and other equipment to cruise ship passengers. It also provides services to guests visiting hotels, resorts, theme parks and convention centers.
