Due to delays related to COVID during the final commissioning phase, the inaugural voyage of Arosa's newbuild A-ROSA SENA will be pushed back.
Instead of May 21, 2022, as originally scheduled, the ship will now call at the most beautiful cities along the northern Rhine starting May 28, 2022.
All affected passengers are being contacted and will be offered rebooking options.
Like many businesses, Arosa has been affected by the present situation regarding COVID and supply chain challenges. Due to the increase in COVID cases among shipyard employees, suppliers, service providers, and the shortness of certain supplies, which has been intensified by the conflict in Ukraine, the completion of the new riverboat has been delayed.
Arosa Sena is currently the fleet's largest boat, the most technologically advanced, as well as the first on the Rhine River to have 5 decks. The name "Sena" was officially announced on August 11, 2021, derived from the Arabic language (a variant of "Sana") and meaning "beauty", "grace".
The vessel is owned by Arosa Flussschiff GmbH and constructed in Holland by Concordia Damen (shipbuilding company in Gorinchem/southern Netherlands). Like all Arosa ships, Sena/Emotion features large-sized (28 m2 ) cabins designed for families with children, also an adjacent indoor family complex with Kids Club - all located on Lower Deck. These staterooms accommodate up to 5 passengers and have a double bed (non-convertible), sofabed, lower-upper bunk beds, separate play area, large bathroom (with two sinks), ample storage.
