This cruise operates with a smaller crew than ocean cruises and does not have the crew available to personally attend to passengers with reduced mobility therefore a travelling companion would need to be able to help with any physical needs.
The itinerary included with the cruises involves shore excursions visiting places with cobbled streets which can be on an incline making navigation of these streets difficult for anyone with reduced mobility.
There is no requirement to bring formal dress
