All Ships

All scooters and electric wheelchairs can be charged in your stateroom when not in use. The standard electric supply in the United Kingdom is 50Hz (cycle) and 240V. It is therefore important that guests contact the manufacturer or supplier to ensure that the equipment is safe to use at 50Hz and the voltage is compatible. This is to ensure the equipment is not damaged or it performance affected.
