From Holland and Knight newsletter:

The Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board) will meet in Washington, DC on August 11 to develop accessibility guidelines under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) for passenger vessels. The meeting will focus on possible approaches and methodologies for the regulatory assessment and regulatory flexibility analysis, the baselines for determining costs, the identification of major and minor cost impacts, estimated unit costs, development of aggregate annual industry costs, and benefits generated by the guidelines as related to large cruise ships. A similar meeting will be conducted at a later date to focus on other passenger vessels.
