  • 1. The Top 16 Accessible Holland America Cruises www.sagetraveling.com/best-holland-america-accessible-cruisess
  • 2. www.sagetraveling.com Although Holland America has some old ships sailing in the Mediterranean, there are still some great cruise options for disabled cruisers. • The key is to choose the correct itinerary on the correct ship. • This article will tell you what you need to know!
  • 3. www.sagetraveling.com The Top 16 Accessible Holland America Cruises in the Mediterranean include a variety of itineraries. The ms Nieuw Amsterdam has three different 12 night itineraries that can be combined into 24 night cruises.
  • 4. www.sagetraveling.com The ms Noordam sails four different 11 night itineraries that can be combined into outstanding 22 night or 33 night vacations. • In fact, the 33 night Holland America cruise made our list of Top 50 Accessible European vacations as the top one month accessible cruise! • Two older ships, the ms Prinsendam and ms Ryndam are home to accessible Holland America cruises to the Holy Land and Egypt.
  • 5. www.sagetraveling.com Wheelchair accessible Holland America cruises are possible on six different ships: 1) ms Nieuw Amsterdam – This Signature Class ship is the newest (built in 2010) and most wheelchair accessible Holland America vessel in the Mediterranean. It has 12 night Grand Mediterranean cruises between Barcelona and Venice (it visits the same ports in either direction). It also has a 12 night Eastern Mediterranean cruise. Both cruise itineraries can be combined into a 24 night cruise. Slight variations in the itineraries cause the percentage of accessible ports to range from 89% to 100%. 2) ms Noordam – This Vista Class ship was launched in 2006 and is more handicapped accessible than all other ships listed on this page except the ms Niew Amsterdam. It has four 11 night itineraries between Athens, Barcelona, Rome, and Venice. They can be combined into 22 night and 33 night accessible Holland America cruises. Accessibility on these itineraries ranges between 89% and 100%.
  • 6. www.sagetraveling.com Wheelchair accessible Holland America cruises are possible on six different ships: 3) ms Ryndam – This S Class ship was built in 1994 and has a few Egypt cruises. 4) ms Prinsendam – One of the oldest ships in the Mediterranean, this small 835 passenger ship sails to Egypt and the Holy Land from Athens & Venice. 5) A few itineraries are available on the ms Rotterdam and the ms Eurodam. Holland America does not list any accessible shore excursions on its website, and they haven’t responded to our requests for information.
  • 7. www.sagetraveling.com Consequently, we are unable to confirm the accessibility of any of the shore excursions they offer. That’s not a reason to avoid Holland America though, since Sage Traveling offers 200+ wheelchair accessible shore excursions across 60+ Mediterranean ports. If you like Holland America Cruise Lines, you may also be interested in Princess Cruises and Celebrity Cruises.
