Carnival Cruises to provide for disabled passengers

Under an agreement with the United States Department of Justice, Miami, Florida-based multinational cruise company Carnival Corp. will be remodeling 3% of its cruise ships’ cabins to make them accessible for disabled passengers.

This change will apply to over 60 cruise ships carrying the Carnival, Holland America, and Princess brands, the Justice Department and Carnival Cruises announced on Thursday, July 23.

Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta, who is also the head of the Justice department’s civil rights division, said that since “cruise ships are floating cities and provide a wide range of facilities and activities subject to the requirements of the ADA such as lodging, dining, entertainment, recreation, and medical facilities”, it is imperative that they provide for the needs of handicapped people.
