Where will I stay?

On a fully accessible ship! 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, however 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.

The bathrooms have been designed 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 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.”
