Advice for wheelchair user on ferry Hull to Rotterdam

Hi all,
I'm not sure if anyone can help but we are trying to get some information on the cabins on the Pride of Rotterdam ferry from Hull to Rotterdam.
Hubby is a full- time chair user and won't be able to stay upright once the ferry is moving as his balance is poor. So really I think I'm just asking for people's experiences of the disabled cabins.....
Thanks for your help.
Ruth

Hi Ruth, I ' ve just been looking for info on the cabins on another ferry and put "Pride of Rotterdam cabins " in Google afterwards. This brings up quite a lot, including photos and reviews. I also find Trip Advisor comments quite useful.

I just thought I should update after we actually sailed and used the disabled cabin.
The actual loading was another issue as they managed to mess up loading(had our yellow Labrador assistance dog down as a Dutch Jack Russell). So couldn't get chair to the lift area by the time we got on..... Ended up using staff lift and going through their quarters.....
The actual cabin was pretty ok although the beds are incredibly narrow and hard (for those who need to worry about pressure areas).the staff were extremely helpful in getting extra bedding etc for padding. The bathroom was good as far as accessible etc goes.
I will try to add some pics...
