Top 5 Accessible Cruises by Azamara

By John Sage

wheelchair-accessible-athens-cruisese Part of the Royal Caribbean family, Azamara Cruises offers several excellent accessible cruises in Europe.  These luxury accessible Azamara cruises are small ships that place a premium on high quality service.

Accessible Azamara cruise itineraries range from 7 days to 12 days and can be combined.  As far as accessible excursions go, the company offers only 12 accessible shore excursions in the Mediterranean.  There are over 65 ports in the Mediterranean, and Sage Traveling can arrange accessible shore excursions in nearly all the remaining ports.

There are two wheelchair accessible Azamara cruise ships sailing in the Mediterranean:

  1. The Azamara Journey is an R-Class ship built in 2007 that has a 694 person passenger capacity.  It has a few accessible itineraries that sail from Athens, Barcelona, Monte Carlo, and Rome.
  2. The Azamara Quest is a sister ship with the same dimensions as the Azamara Journey.  It has departures from Athens, Barcelona, Istanbul, Rome, and Venice.

If you are interested in Azamara cruises, you may also want to take a look at the luxurious Crystal cruise options.

Azamara’s 7-Night Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Azamara Journey

The 7-Night wheelchair accessible Athens cruise is one of the most accessible of Azamara’s cruise itineraries in southern Europe.  On this itinerary, all 6 of the 6 ports have accessible shore excursion options.  Consequently, we named it the Top Accessible Luxury Greek Isles Cruise from Athens.

Before you start your cruise, you can spend a couple of nights in a wheelchair accessible Athens hotel exploring the city with the help of the Sage Accessibility Guide for Athens.  During your cruise, you’ll visit two volcanic islands, Santorini and Sicily, as well as have the opportunity for an accessible guided tour of Pompeii and an accessible tour of Malta.

This wheelchair accessible Azamara cruise ends in Rome where you can stay in a wheelchair accessible hotel in central Rome.  An accessible Vatican tour will avoid the stairs near the Sistine Chapel, and the accessible Rome city center tour visits the Colosseum, Pantheon, Spanish Steps, and more. The 100+ page Sage Accessibility Guide for Rome is provided to those travelers who book their cruise through Sage Traveling.
