Accessible Travel Netherlands recently announced the dates for their 2020 accessible river cruises aboard the accessible Prins Willem Alexander. This former hospital ship has 25 accessible cabins which are each equipped with two hospital beds, a wash basin, an emergency call button, and plenty of room for even the largest wheelchair or scooter.
The bathrooms, which are shared, are equally accessible. They each include a roll-in shower with a shower seat, a hand-held showerhead, an accessible sink, and toilet and shower grab bars. Each bathroom is shared by three cabins, and there are an additional four restrooms on the main deck. Says one former passenger, “There are literally so many bathrooms it was not a problem ever.”
Here’s more information and photos about access on the ship.
And here are the dates and itineraries for Accessible Travel Netherlands’ 2020 Holland river cruises.

The cruises include an accessible guided tour in each town with a local guide, plus plenty free time to explore each port. And if you need extra mobility equipment on board — such as a shower commode chair or a hoist – that can be arranged too.
I’ve received lots of feedback from past passengers, and they all simply raved about Accessible Travel Netherlands cruises.
