Tour BHB-101 is the same as BHB-100 and uses the same transportation. Wheelchair confined guests must book tour BHB-101. Able bodied family members and friends must book BHB-100. You will travel together. Board the motorcoach and begin a leisurely 2.25-hour drive along the stunning coastline of Acadia for sweeping views of rugged shoreline, evergreen forests, and mountain summits. You'll travel down the Park's spectacular 27-mile Loop Road. Then your motorcoach will wind its way to the summit of the majestic Cadillac Mountain. At 1,532-foot tall, it's the highest point on the North American coast and at certain times of the year, it's the first place in the U.S. to see the sun rise. The summit offers awe-inspiring views of Bar Harbor, Frenchman Bay, and the Cranberry Islands. Another scenic drive takes you back through Acadia, into Bar Harbor and to the pier.

Special Notes:

Tour may operate in alternative order. In the event of adverse weather conditions or summit closures imposed by the National Park Service due to heavy traffic, the stop at Cadillac Mountain cannot be guaranteed There can be strong winds atop Cadillac Mountain. Dressing warmly is recommended - a sweater and Windbreaker.

The content of this tour is identical to BHB-100. Only guests using a wheelchair can book this tour, as it ensures accessible transportation. Due to the specialized nature of some lift-equipped vehicles, priority is given to guests using a wheelchair and one companion only; additional companions may be required to travel on the transportation provided for tour BHB-100. Bookings not marked with an accessibility requirement will be removed from the tour's inventory.

Guests with collapsible wheelchairs who can manage 3 to 5 steps boarding the bus should book BHB-100. Collapsible wheelchairs and scooters can be stored in the luggage compartment.

If you cannot transfer or your personal mobility device cannot be easily disembarked, you may be precluded from going ashore. Because of staffing limitations, we recommend you be accompanied by someone who is physically able to assist you both onboard and onshore. Please fill out the Mobility Questionnaire (PDF) and return to the Access Office: accessofficeprincess@princesscruises.com or faxed to 661-284-4408 at least 60 days prior to sailing. With your safety and comfort in mind, the decision to permit or prohibit guests from going ashore will be made on each occasion by the ship's Captain, and the decision will be final. Ports that normally use tenders to access the shore are noted on the itinerary.


In ports where guests utilize tender boats to go ashore, Princess staff will make every effort to assist but are not allowed to individually physically lift more than 50 pounds (22kg). Guests requiring physical assistance must travel with a companion who can assist. With your safety and comfort in mind, the final decision to permit or prohibit guests from going ashore will be made on each occasion by the ship's Captain.

Tour guides/drivers may not lift any wheelchair or scooter weighing over 50 pounds. Although guides may provide verbal guidance to guests, they may not lift guests or push wheelchairs. Guests requiring physical assistance must travel with an able-bodied companion. The maximum weight limit is 475 pounds. Guests need to plan accordingly and may elect to bring a collapsible wheelchair instead of a scooter. Please visit the tour desk once onboard to advise the staff what kind of wheelchair or scooter you will be using on the tour.
