I am disabled, rated 50% disabled by the Veterans administration and meet the ADA standard for disability.
I have back and leg problems, as well as chronic pain.
I am glad to see the Supreme Court has ruled cruise ships have to make things more accessible.
I have been on 9 cruises.
One issue I would like you to incorporate is the cruise line controls all the food duing the week. I can ease and mitigate my chronic pain through diet and thus do not eat meat, eggs, or dairy products. It is hit and miss on how well the cruise ships do this. The last cruise I had, I talked with several people who were responsible for food but did not care I have few options on food.
Can you please make sure the ADA rules state that food issues are a part of ADA compliance and the cruise lines have to offer proper meals. I know others that have food relate dissues with their disability. It isn't enough that the doors and hallways comply, as at home, you can go home to eat. On a ship you have to eat their food and thus they ought to be compelled to offer food and meals that allow ADA defined people to fully enjoy the cruise.
