The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) is a comprehensive civil-rights law for people with disabilities. The Department of Justice (DOJ) enforces the law?s requirements in three areas, including Title III?public accommodations and commercial facilities. In the March 2003 PN/Paraplegia News, read about recent ADA disputes that involve the travel and entertainment industries:

? A cruise line was accused of violating Title III by failing to provide an adequate number of accessible cabins, charging extra for them, and offering programs and services in inaccessible areas of the ships.
? In Branson, Mo., a number of theaters and restaurants have agreed to make changes that will allow them to meet accessibility requirements.

There?s also news about a Canmore (Alberta, Canada) B&B with a private, accessible suite; an accessible Greek resort with easy access to and from Athens and the rest of Greece; a Web site with information (in English) about Milan, Italy; and a travel company that offers a complete range of trips for people with mobility impairments and other medical needs.
