Are the pools on Disney Fantasy handicapped accessible?

I have looked all over and can't seem to find the answer to this question. I am goimng to be on the Fantasy in November of next year and would like to be able to use the pools. I have read that RCCL have lifts for their pool. Has anyone been on the Fantasy that is handicapped and used the pools? Thanks so much!

Here is a quote I found on the DCL page..
A pool transfer tier is available for Guests with disabilities. The transfer tier consists of three to four steps that Guests may use themselves or with the assistance of a member of their party."
If I were you I would also call DCL for more info as they will have info about each ship & its accessibility.

Well there is the Satellite Falls on the 13th deck that you can sit on the edge of and also the other little water area on deck 12 you could sit on. The hot tubs do have 2 steps to get inside and the pool is ground level, if that makes sense and you can sit on the edge where the mister is, or walk down into the pool. You would have to walk down the pool stairs or do a cannon ball to get into the water there is also a seating area in side the pool where you can sit on the "bench" and still be immersed in the water about up to your neck (i'm 5'2"). I have pictures of the pool if that would help you, or i'd recommend you email DCL special services. DCL Special Request <DCL.Special.Request@disney.com> Let me know if you would like the photos and i can figure out how to send them to you.

I agree with the others who suggested contacting the cruise line to find out for sure.

I have not been on a cruise, but can explain a little more about transfer tiers.
A transfer tier is a set of stairs that begins at about chair seat height. Someone using a wheelchair can park the chair next to the top step and easily transfer over to the top step.
A person who is more mobile could walk over and sit on the top step.
After sitting on the top step, the user 'bumps' or lowers down each step until they get into the water. The steps extend down into the water. To get out, the person does the reverse - get onto the bottom step in the water and the transfer up one step at a time.
Here's a picture of a transfer tier (from Beach Club Villas quiet pool)

It's possible you would not notice the lift if there is one. The lift seat itself is removable and if it is not on, all anyone would see is the place on the ground that receives the upright pole with the seat.
Even if you know what to look for, it is not necessarily easy to spot without the seat.

I will look at some of our photos.............Possible I may have missed it. But I look at these kind of things. My mother is an amputee and I look for any handicap items to make her stay nicer
