Others have addressed the handicapped access better than I can. But have you considered the ramifications of a cruise from DC to say the Keys and back every winter to do your "snow bunny" thing?

To do this comfortably, you need to leave DC by mid November at the latest. It will take at least two weeks to get to warm Florida, say San Augustine and another week to get to the Keys. The journey will be mostly nice, but with some cold, blustery days at that time of year. Then you stay in southern Florida for whatever time your schedule allows and do it all over on the way back to DC.

The point is, you will spend 6 weeks each year coming and going. You can also hire a delivery crew to do it for you- about $4,000-5,000 each way.
