A very moving, very quiet visit to the Titanic cemetery. Our guide gave us some unique stories of the families, showed us some of the photos on the gravestones with their stories. A remarkable trip.

I see on the site it says NOT wheelchair accessible. How about someone walking with a cane? In general will they be able to traverse the landscape to get to the Titanic portion of the cemetery, is it close to the roadway?

There are signs to follow to the Titanic section, easy to find and park. Not sure about the explosion?
Arriving by cruise ship in September. Could someone tell me how far this is from the port? Are there buses that bus people to/from? Thank you in advance.
