This trip requires good to moderate mobility, as many of the ports of call are tender ports and you will be required to go up and down stairs to reach the tender platform to disembark the ship. Though there are bus and van tours, many excursions are moderate due to a lot of waking over uneven surfaces such as cobblestone, rocky paths, up and down hills and stairs (sometimes just use a bathroom in a restaurant). If you do have limited mobility, you are required to travel with someone who can assist you.
