A-ROSA SENA

River cruise on the Rhine with the new A-ROSA Rhine ship.

A-ROSA’s modern cruise ships on the Rhine offer much space for everything that makes guests‘ holidays even more comfortable. The new E-motion ship on the Rhine sets completely new standards and surpasses any river cruise ship you have ever seen.

Sustainable cruising

The new ship is ideal for people who love cruising and also want to help reduce the environmental impact. The E-motion ship can come into port in an emission-free manner thanks to battery propulsion. Fuel consumption decreases and this helps keep the towns and cities en route clean.

E-motion ship experience for the whole family

There is plenty of space for family time in the 20 sq m standard cabins with a balcony and the generous 28 sq m family cabins for up to five people. The A-ROSA Kids Club has its own dedicated rooms on board. Many outdoor and dining areas invite the passengers to enjoy watching the landscape passing by. Parents can take a dip in the 23 sq m pool and kids will love their separate children’s pool on deck. The spacious spa and wellness area provides nothing but relaxation. There are also a variety of leisure activities on board.

SPA-ROSA

Experience beauty and anti-ageing treatments with facials, as well as comforting warmth in the sauna or sanarium, which let you benefit from more vitality and radiance.

Your SPA-ROSA feels a responsibility to give you the greatest possible recuperative effect during your cruise. We hope that, long after your holiday is over, you will often hear someone say, ‘You look so relaxed.’

Active recreation is offered in the especially developed exercise programme. Deep relaxation and intense well-being can be found with these treatments unique to A-ROSA.

Useful Information

A-ROSA is green

For over fifteen years, A-ROSA has been the market leader for premium holidays on the Danube, Douro, Rhine, Rhône and Seine. What is it that makes city breaks by ship so appealing? The opportunity for guests to discover different cities, towns and landscapes. For us it’s a privilege to be able to explore iconic destinations and lesser-known locales – and we love to share it with our guests. While we will always do all we can to give our guests a care free holiday, we will always care aboutthe people and places our visits touch.

Our cruises take us right into areas where people live, which is one of the reasons why inland navigation is subject to very strict regulations – particularly compared with navigation at sea – and rigorous inspections. As a recent study shows, all things considered, inland navigation is the most environmentally friendly mode of transport, surpassing even train travel. The factors taken into account for the study included impact on the climate, air pollution, accidents and noise pollution.

At A-ROSA we’re aware that past and present environmental challenges require a long-term approach. That’s the only way we’ll be able to preserve both quality of life in urban areas and the natural environment for future generations. As a company we believe that this is our responsibility, and our actions in all areas of environmental protection put us at the very forefront of our industry.

Lasting responsibility: As part of our sustainability strategy, we review and refine the actions listed here on an ongoing basis.
