Earlier this month, Health and Safety Manager, Robert Doma organized a training program in Palma de Mallorca, entitled “Persons with Reduced Mobility Training” – in accordance with the EU N° 1177/2010 regulation.

All attending trainees had previously completed the “Disability Awareness”, “Assisting Guests in Wheelchairs” and “Lift-equipped Vehicles Policy and Procedure” training programs through the online portal.

First, I explained the theoretical part, which covered topics such as physical disabilities, mental disabilities, visual or hearing disabilities and how to specifically help people who suffer with them. Later in the afternoon, the participants took part in a two-hour practical training session where they were able to practice the concepts they had learned in the morning, such as pushing wheelchairs and learning how to help effectively. Attention toward disability is a big focus for cruise lines, and we all want to ensure that all guests feel welcome and comfortable.” – Robert Doma, Health & Safety Manager
