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 spacious step-free (wheel-in) showers, toilets with support rails on both sides and lowered wash basins.
The bathrooms have been designed as separate 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 a river cruise holiday April 2017: “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.”
Wheelchairs and mobility scooters are allowed on the ship and can be used at all times. Additional mobility equipment is available on the ship or can be delivered on the ship.

Each place you will explore with a local English speaking and knowledgeable tour guide. They take into account accessibility requirements and offer a suitable route to the centre of the towns. These cities are all old and are somewhat challenging with regards to cobble stones. However, the guides are locals and know exactly which streets are the most suitable. Also, they will know where to go for a drink or snack.
After the guided tour, you'll have time to explore the location by yourself. Enjoy a fresh beer, a hot coffee or a sweet pastry. You'll be expected on the ship around 17:30 for dinner begin served at 18:00 hrs.
