A-ROSA is a premium, European, river cruise company, which was established in 2000 as a subsidiary of P&O Princess Cruises and is currently owned by UK-based Duke Street, CEO Jörg Eichler, and COO Markus Zoepke. The river cruise line’s thirteen vessels explore a wide variety of destinations on the Danube, Rhine/Main/Moselle, Seine, Rhône/Saône and Douro, offering city and nature tours as well as curated themed itineraries.

The company operates offices in Rostock, Cardiff and in Chur/Switzerland and currently employs around 950 people from 25 different nations.

Providing exceptional choice and flexibility, voyages range from 4 to 16 nights, making it the perfect choice for guests seeking short breaks, as an add-on to any European holiday, and for river cruise enthusiasts looking for comprehensive itineraries. A-ROSA’s vessels offer outdoor grill stations, bars, lounges and restaurants in a relaxed environment, contemporary and spacious outside cabins with a combination of windows and Juliette balconies and luxurious balcony suites, complete with onboard pool or whirlpool, board shop, beauty & massage centre, gym, panorama sauna and relaxation area and outdoor features, such as putting green, shuffleboard, and giant chess.

In the coming years, the company’s premium position and quality leadership will be further strengthened by investments in product innovation, sustainability, marketing and sales. To continue a growth path in the core business, the focus is on the construction of new vessels and expansion to include new destinations. Therefore, the new A-ROSA SENA joined the fleet in June 2022. The innovative E-Motion ship is hybrid-powered and has a battery storage unit, which enables it to call at the ports of the most beautiful cities along the Northern Rhine almost silently and without producing local emissions. Thanks to these and other innovative technologies, the A-ROSA SENA won 1st place at the 2022 German Awards for Sustainability Projects in the category "Service – Transportation".

To feel at home while on the move. The goal of a cabin.

A cabin is more than just a place to sleep. It’s a place where you can truly relax and feel at ease.

A place where you can take time out during a trip full of new experiences. Our cabins were made for this. For us, quality is the magic word. It’s what turns a place to sleep into a home. A home featuring premium materials, modern equipment, soothing colours and an elegant design. An A-ROSA cabin combines all of this in a generously sized room.

Excursions during your A-ROSA rivercruise

A pond full of water lilies. The Japanese bridge over there. Suddenly you realise that you’re standing in the middle of one of the world’s most valuable paintings. A real-life version of the painting. What an overwhelming view at Monet’s “Water Lilies".

Some of our excursions will take you to the places where some of the greatest artists of the 19th and 20th centuries created their works. Not only art lovers, but also history buffs and fans of adventure stories will be in their element. Medieval castles, monasteries and villages are ready to tell their stories. Our expert guides know more than any guide book about the Eiffel Tower, Empress Elisabeth’s life, Cologne Cathedral and Rotterdam’s hyper-modern architecture. Do you fancy admiring the white horses of the Camargue from a jeep? Want to ride on a horse-drawn waggon through the Puszta? Travel to the Budapest Parliament by segway? The sights you’ll encounter on our routes are world-famous. By offering our guests special ways of discovering these sights, we open up completely new perspectives for you. A-ROSA excursions delight not only guests with a hunger for new experiences and a thirst for knowledge; gourmets will also have their fill of treats.
