"At Norwegian, we believe in offering our guests the highest level of freedom, and this is especially important for passengers with mobility needs," said Craig Steyn, Senior Director of Onboard Revenue for Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings. "In Scootaround, we see a partner that is just as excited about innovation as we are. We look forward to working with the team there to provide the best possible experiences for our guests."
As an exclusive vendor, Scootaround is the only provider permitted to deliver rented equipment onboard Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises ships. Through Scootaround, passengers on these ships can rent scooters, wheelchairs, powerchairs, rollators, oxygen, hospital beds, Hoyer lifts and other medical equipment.
The cruise industry as a whole has seen a steady increase in the number of passengers requiring mobility assistance, a trend that is likely to continue as the nation's 65+ population grows. The addition of 8 new ships to Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings' fleet through 2027 will further heighten this demand.
"There are now over 70 million baby boomers, many who require a mobility device when they travel," said Kerry Renaud, CEO / Managing Director of Scootaround. "We want to ensure guests can easily navigate Norwegian's ships and enjoy their vacations worry-free. Cruising should be fully accessible to all travelers, and we're happy to play a part in making that happen."
The partnership between Norwegian and Scootaround launched on September 1, 2018.
Scootaround is the nation's leading provider of mobility equipment solutions, offering rental and repair services for scooters, wheelchairs, powerchairs, and rollators at over 2,500 locations across North America.
