The cabins are all tastefully fitted with brass details and handsome textiles. They are small, but cosy, leaving an impression of how people once travelled. The size is actually comparable to a smaller sleeping compartment on a train, but unlike the train, most guests are only in the cabin while sleeping.

The M/S Wilhelm Tham has bunk beds in all cabins with two exceptions. There are two “honeymoon cabins” on the main deck each with a 120-cm wide, queen-size bed. There is also a 4-bed cabin on this deck. All cabins have a washstand with a basin offering hot and cold water. Shared shower and toilet facilities are installed on each deck – no cabin has its own. However, they are nearby and were also renovated in 2004 using brass details, hardwood framing and warm colours. With the door closed there is complete privacy. The crew cleans these toilets several times a day, thus fulfilling our goal that they should always be clean and fresh.

All cabins are on the outside and above the waterline. The cabins on shelter and bridge decks open onto the deck. Those who have booked a category A cabin (bridge deck) will be welcomed by sparkling wine, some fruit and a bathrobe as they board.
