The 'Panta Rhei' was launched in 1903 in the village of Maurik as a cargo ship. It sailed in that capacity until skipper/owner Peter Fokkens began a complete renovation in 1997 and after completion started to set sail with passenger travels.
In 2009 the 'Panta Rhei' (Greek for "everything streams") was sold to skipper Eelke Dijkstra, who, prior to the season 2010, carried out major furniture renewals belowdecks .
By descending the elegant, characteristic stairs to the salon of the 'Panta Rhei' you'll enter a bright, multifunctional parlour with convenient chairs and couches. There's ample dining space for 16 persons in the salon. In the evenings it can easily be turned into a pleasant meeting place to enjoy a drink and a snack while reading a good book or playing one of the onboard party or card games.
Furthermore the salon has audiovisual equipement, a compact library and central heating.
The hallway leads to the eight practically identical double cabins
all with central heating and a sink with hot/cold running (drinking-) water. The two bunkbeds measure 200 by 70 cm, are made with bedclothes (quilts), pilows and towels. The bathrooms with shower and toilet are linked between each two cabins and can be locked from the inside for total privacy.
One or two shelves and a small wardrobe are at your disposal to store your luggage. We advice to carry your luggage as much as possible in sports- or travelling bags.
The cabins, just like the salon, are all equipped with 220 Volt sockets that have power 24 h/day. Shaving, blow drying, and charging all kinds of equipment is thus always possible.
For your safety smoke detectors have been installed belowdecks. Obviously smoking downstairs is prohibited.
On the upperdeck you have the entire ship at your disposal. Whether you feel like steering the ship for awhile, taking a napp on the foredeck or having a chat with your fellow-passengers in the 'tub'.
