I just returned and had a rented scooter- very needed with all the places to go on board. I recommend getting a handicap room close to the elevators. The cabin area halls are very narrow and often blocked with laundry and restocking carts. Stewards were always helpful and moved them, but it was great to only have a short hall to get into my room.

We just got back from our cruise and can tell you that most of the ship is acesable but during the day with all the deck chairs out I ended up carrying my wife several times to get on and off the sun decks,
I was also told that that all the non handicap rooms doors openings were 26 inches but the clear opening to get a scooter is 24 inches, had to play the scooter game because of this, one last thing also make sure your room is not next to a fire door, most rooms have doors to 2 rooms side by side but not the rooms next to fire door, it will be almost impossible for the person who is handicap to get into the room without help.
All the public areas of the ship are handicap accessible. You won't have an issue moving about the ship and attending any of the events and entertainment onboard the ship.
The ship's crew will assist you in getting on and off the ship at the port. However, once you are in Bermuda, you will need to check the type of shore excursion you plan to do. If you plan to book the excursion through the ship, the shore excursion staff will assist you in planning the best excursion for you. However, if you plan to explore Bermuda on your own, you will have to do some research on the best options.

The ship is very accessible; as for the shore excursions any restrictions will be noted in the description of the tour, read through those carefully.
