A Q&A With the Experts

To give you the inside scoop on how best to book and enjoy your accessible cruise, we’ve enlisted two of the most knowledgeable wheelchair travel experts we know: Cory Lee, of Curb Free with Cory Lee, and Ashley Lyn Olson, of wheelchairtraveling.com. Between them, Lee and Olson have dealt with every kind of access obstacle and opportunity.

We had a wide-ranging conversation covering everything the prospective cruiser would want to know. You can find much more on cruising and accessible travel on their respective websites, www.curbfreewithcorylee.com and www.wheelchairtraveling.com.
