Review of Arosa Viva

The Arosa Viva boat cruises on Rhine and Moselle rivers leaving from Koln (Cologne) Germany.

A-Rosa Viva cruise ship was built in Warnemünde, Germany, by Neptun Werft GmbH. She entered service in 2010 as the 2nd of three identical-class ships – together with Aqua and Brava. Just like her fleetmates, Viva offers all inclusive river cruise experience in European rivers' waters. Among the features all included in fares are the gratuities, shore excursions, roundtrip air, specialty beverages and cocktails.

Arosa Viva cruise ship

A-Rosa Viva ship's restaurant is on Deck Three, adjacent to the Lounge, focusing on Mediterranan cuisine with continental European touch. The standouts on board are the massive spa, gym and salon. The Viva ship also has a sauna and a steam room, a whirlpool on deck 3, bicycles to use in port. Most of Arosa Viva accommodations (nearly 70%) have a French Balcony. There are no Suites on the boat. The so called "Juliet Balcony" staterooms feature 2 floor-ceiling doors that open inwards and offer outside views.

A-Rosa Viva river cruise prices are per person and based on double occupancy. These are only indicative A-Rosa cruise rates. They might be different when you book your Arosa Viva cruisetour deals (all-inclusive), influenced by travel agency promotions, special offers and discounts, group travel booking or last-minute deals rates.
