Accessible River Cruise Holidays are celebrating a big success in the Netherlands. We offer 3 new vacation packages for 2018 that allow you to discover Holland on a ship equipped with full accessibility.
Date: April 1st to April 6th, 2018
The River Cruises will sail on the rivers of the Netherlands and visit one beautiful historic town each day. In the towns, we offer guided tours with local guides, but also the possibility to enjoy the wonderful places individually.
The exact route of the April River Cruise is not available yet, but it will follow mid September 2017. Complete the request form on this page if you'd like to stay informed about the April River Cruise Holiday route.
The modern PWA river cruise ship has 25 spacious accessible cabins and 23 cabins for co-travellers and assistants. The cabins on the ship are equipped with two electric high-low beds, a wash basin, a television, an alarm system and plenty of closet space. The cabins are not equipped with private bathrooms but there’s one large fully adapted bathroom available per 3 cabins. The bathrooms have step-free (wheel-in) showers, toilets with support rails on both sides and lowered wash basins. The wide sundeck is accessible with a large elevator that is spacious enough for a care bed. The entrance of the ship is wide and has a ramp. Furthermore, the river cruise ship has a bar and restaurant.
Wheelchairs and mobility scooters are allowed on the ship and can be used at all times. Additional mobility equipment can be delivered on the ship such as a hoist, a shower commode chair or other equipment.
People that can provide care assistance are available on the ship.
The 6-day River Cruise Holiday will dock at a new town each day. Excursions and guided tours will be offered in these towns. You'll be able to enjoy the unique places, learn about the local culture and architecture and enjoy the local coffee places.
Free choice: Keukenhof flower gardens are open and can be visited during or after the River Cruise Vacation

However, apart from the toilets in the bathrooms, there are more accessible toilets on the ship. Here is a remark from one of the travellers who participated the last river cruise holiday: “There are literally so many bathrooms it was not a problem ever. The 1 per 3 is for large bathrooms with showers. There are 4 other bathrooms on the main floor above the cabins :) My hubs and I went in April.”
