River Cruises - Disposal of Toilet Paper?

Jump to last reply

Excuse the bizarre subject, but a friend of mine just told me that she is not interested in any river cruise (I was looking at a Danube or Rhine cruise) because one does not flush toilet paper, but rather puts it in a container to be disposed of by the crew. I had never heard of this, but can't imagine that it's true...I'm sure that ships have holding tanks for waste; it doesn't just get piped overboard. Can anyone settle this matter for me?
