The bathrooms will be appointed to specific passengers, so you or the ship manager can discuss a schedule with your co-bathroom users if you wish. The bathrooms have been built as seperate bathrooms in order to have bigger cabins and bigger accessible bathrooms. With regards to toilets, there are four additional accessible toilets on the main deck. 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.”
