Many of the tours are walking tours on cobblestone streets, with the possibility of snow and icy conditions. There are staircases on the ship, along with an accessible lift to assist guests with mobility issues. The lift does not go to the top deck, where often guests need to go to disembark the ship in some ports. Guests must be able to walk short amounts of stairs and 1-2 miles/day on uneven surfaces without assistance. Motorized wheelchairs cannot be accommodated on board, and may be difficult to maneuver during guided tours on land in the winter. Olivia will provide a “Gentle Walkers” group on included tours whenever possible to accommodate those who need a little more time to get from place to place. If you are not able to get on a bus or walk without assistance, you are required to bring someone who can assist you.


We will be offering a 1-night post stretcher in Prague, December 11-12, 2019. For information, please click here.
