Tub/Shower in Dream

Hello all,

JUst booked a 4 day on Dream for us in Sept.

Taking M-in-law. Question. Does anyone know about the height of the tub wall around the shower?

It doesn't seem too high. MIL has bad arthritis and osteoarthritis worried that she may not be able to step over it. Any rail to hold on to in shower?

Otherwise looking at cat 8A for accessible. Happy with room we have now though. Worst case we can help her in and out of shower I suppose.

Thanks

I can't remember how high it was. I was recovering from achilles surgery and had trouble stepping over the wall. There was a handle but it was awkward.

I've found the tub wall to be as high or higher than my tub at home. They do have grab/safety bars.

I don't know how high it is, but like the others said there is a grab bar.

What sailing are you on? I'm cruising in September as well.

We ended up with an accessible on deck 6 last year and we do not have any disability. They must have not had any requests for it and gave it to us. Bathroom was huge and walk in shower with pull around curtain.
