Background
A-ROSA AQUA
Overview

Cruising on a river is certainly not the fastest mode of transportation. And the countless meanders of the Rhine, Danube and Rhône are not the fastest way to get from A to B either. But that’s precisely what we want to give you: a little time for you to relax and unwind. As you leisurely take in the breathtaking riverscape, you can really take time for yourself. Make yourself comfortable in your cosy cabin or simply daydream in SPA-ROSA and on the sun deck. If you like, you can also take part in our many exciting activities.

Food & Drink

There are sumptuous buffets with preparation stations for you to enjoy in the dining room or al fresco on the top deck. Casual∘ and comfortable is your definition of a great dining experience. Or perhaps you enjoy a served dinner service with delectable cuisine, surrounded by fine linens, crystal and china in a semi-private environment. Whatever you decide, you can design the perfect setting for you.
