FIRSTLY: OUR IMPORTANT INFORMATION (See Cruise ship information below)
Scooter free wheel/Drive control lever.
At the rear of the scooter you will see a lever, this lever when moved up or down or front to rear (models vary) will disengage and engage the drive motor. For the scooter to run the lever needs to be firmly engaged in the drive position. If the lever is not in the drive position the scooter will roll freely when pushed and it will not run.
It is very important for you to remember that if this lever is moved at any time when the scooter is switched on the scooter will not work. Switch off your scooter and follow instruction's above.
Do Not Get Your Scooter Controls Wet
Your scooter controls must be kept dry at all times. We supply a small rain cover with every scooter which you cover the controls every time you leave your scooter unattended outdoors (Do not drive the scooter when cover installed). If your scooter gets wet your scooter may stop running and you will have to push it back to your hotel. We will replace your scooter subject to a $50 swap out fee plus the cost of repairing the scooter. It can rain at any time in Florida so it is your sole responsibility to keep your scooter controls dry.

USEFUL CRUISE SHIP RELATED INFORMATION
Wheelchairs and Other Personal Mobility Equipment
Disney cruise ships
Most Guest areas on Disney ships, including the theaters, restaurants and shops are wheelchair accessible. There are also accessible public restrooms. You may wish to consider booking a wheelchair accessible stateroom, which has a 32-inch entrance door and features a wider path of travel inside the stateroom. Typical staterooms have a narrower entrance door (23 inches) and may not have the interior space to accommodate mobility equipment. SEE YELLOW SCOOTERS FOLDABLE MOBILITY SCOOTER
Please note the following regarding the use of wheelchairs and mobility devices on Disney Cruise Line:
You must provide your own wheelchair or other mobility aid or arrange for the rental, delivery and pickup of that device to and from the ship on your own.
We strongly recommend that Guests plan to sail with someone who can physically assist them when necessary. Certain activities, like using a tender boat to visit a port of call or accessing a pool require Guests to transfer out of their wheelchairs.
Due to safety regulations, wheelchairs, scooters, strollers and other personal belongings may not be stored in public passageways and must be stored inside staterooms and designated public storage area.
You may bring and use wheelchairs, mobility scooters and other assistive devices onboard our ships.
Assistive devices including mobility scooters must be stored and recharged in your stateroom so fire doors, corridors and elevator lobbies are kept clear for emergency evacuation. When parked throughout the ship, they must be parked out of the way to allow safe and easy access by other guests and crew members.
Assistive devices should fit through a standard stateroom entry doorway which is at least 23 inches wide. We offer accessible staterooms which have wider doors which are at least 32 inches wide and may accommodate larger devices. SEE YELLOW SCOOTERS FULLY FOLDABLE MOBILITY SCOOTER
Carnival Cruise Lines
Carnival have three classifications of staterooms:
Modified Cabins: These staterooms are designed for use by guests with mobility limitations, who do not require the regular use of a wheelchair, scooter, or other similar assistive devices. For example, Modified Cabins are ideal for guests who only use an assistive device for traversing longer distances, a cane or walker, and who may benefit from certain accessible features, such as grab bars, to assist with balance.
Accessible Cabins: These staterooms are designed for guests with highly limited or no mobility who utilize wheelchairs or other similar assistive devices, and include features such as turning space, accessible routes throughout the cabin, and accessible bathrooms. As with all Carnival reservations, staterooms within each category are assigned on a first come, first serve basis. Therefore, it is advisable to reserve an accessible or modified stateroom in advance.
Standard Cabins: These staterooms have an entry doorway measuring approximately 22", an 8" lip into the cabin bathroom, a 4" lip into the shower stall and a 7" lip to the balcony (if applicable).
USE OF MOBILITY SCOOTERS
Scooters must be stored and batteries recharged in your stateroom. Keep in mind that the scooter minimizes the available space within your stateroom. Due to safety considerations, wheelchairs and scooters cannot be stored in the corridors. Your personal scooter should be able to fit in a standard stateroom with a 22" entry doorway. If your scooter is larger than 21", you must purchase an accessible stateroom or rent a smaller scooter.SEE YELLOW SCOOTERS FULLY FOLDABLE MOBILITY SCOOTER
Norwegian Cruise Lines
A wheelchair, scooter or walker may be the primary mobility assistance aid for getting on and off the ship for guests who cannot walk on their own. Norwegian Cruise Line has a limited supply of wheelchairs onboard. In order to accommodate our guests, Norwegian Cruise Line wheelchairs are reserved exclusively for embarkation and disembarkation situations. If you will require regular use of a wheelchair, you must bring your own wheelchair with you. The limited supply of wheelchairs onboard are available for emergency rental arrangements only and are on a first come first serve basis.
Motorized wheelchairs and scooters are allowed in the accessible staterooms provided that they are powered by gel-cell batteries and the chargers must be adaptable to 110 volts. Should you choose a stateroom that has not been designated as accessible, you will need to bring a collapsible wheelchair, or if you have a motorized wheelchair or scooter, the width must not exceed 26 inches to enter the stateroom door. All scooters and wheelchairs MUST be stored in the stateroom. Due to the safety and escape way requirements established by SOLAS regulations, they cannot be stored in the hallways, stairways, or any other public area. Beach wheelchairs can be rented for use on Norwegian Cruise Line's private island. SEE YELLOW SCOOTERS FULLY FOLDABLE MOBILITY SCOOTER
