Good morning Imnei Thank you for your comments - we really appreciate your feedback. Yes, our vessel to Rottnest Island is 100% wheelchair accessible, and we are very proud to offer this service. The vessels that we use on the Swan River services are not quite as accessible, and it really depends on what vessel we are using on what day. I can certainly see your point on the day that you cruised with us however. It would have been a good idea for the crew to put in place an additional ramp to make disembarkation easier for you. Please be assured that we always aim to make our vessels as accessible as possible, and we will take your feedback on board for when we are operational again. Thank you Imnei. Kind regards, Katrina
