Travel ahoy – accessible tourism by water

Dear Sir or Madam,

Whether the Mediterranean Sea or the Atlantic Ocean – many spots of this earth are worth a journey. But what does it look like when people with disabilities prefer to travel these holiday destinations on the water? How accessible, for example, cruise ships have become in the meantime and which other possibilities are also available, you can find out in our Topic of the Month.

Have a wanderlusty week,

Nadine Lormis
