Special Notes:

The content of this tour is identical to NPT-215. Only guests using a wheelchair can book this tour, as it ensures accessible transportation. Due to the specialized nature of some lift-equipped vehicles, priority is given to guests using a wheelchair and one companion only; additional companions may be required to travel on the transportation provided for tour NPT-215. Bookings not marked with an accessibility requirement will be removed from the tour's inventory.

In ports where guests utilize tender boats to go ashore, Princess staff will make every effort to assist but are not allowed to individually physically lift more than 50 pounds (22kg). Guests requiring physical assistance must travel with a companion who can assist. With your safety and comfort in mind, the final decision to permit or prohibit guests from going ashore will be made on each occasion by the ship's Captain.

Tour guides/drivers may not lift any wheelchair or scooter weighing over 50 pounds. Although guides may provide verbal guidance to guests, they may not lift guests or push wheelchairs. Guests requiring physical assistance must travel with an able-bodied companion. The maximum weight limit is 475 pounds. Guests need to plan accordingly and may elect to bring a collapsible wheelchair instead of a scooter. Please visit the tour desk once onboard to advise the staff what kind of wheelchair or scooter you will be using on the tour.
