Below you can read about the accessibility on board our boats. It's important to note that we cannot guarantee that our staff will be able to assist with lifting wheelchairs on/off.

Please contact our customer service for more detailed information about accessibility on specific vessels/routes.

Stockholm - Can you bring a wheelchair on board the boats?
There are different conditions on all our boats, see below.

Accessibility on board turn-of-the-century vessels
The older vessels have narrow passages, stairs, and height differences which make it difficult to maneuver a wheelchair on board these ships.

Accessibility on board Cinderellabåtarna
The main deck of M/S Cinderella II is accessible for wheelchairs and electric scooters, subject to space availability. The main deck also features accessible toilets and a cafeteria. However, access to upper decks and outdoor decks is challenging.
Please note that sometimes we may need to use an extra or replacement boat that may not have the same facilities as M/S Cinderella II. You are welcome to call our customer service the day before departure for more information.

Accessibility on board our transport and sightseeing boats
Some of our sightseeing boats are adapted for wheelchairs, but only one of the boats has an accessible toilet on board for people with mobility impairments. Normally, our boats to Fjäderholmarna can accommodate wheelchairs, but this may vary as we sometimes use replacement boats.
