   October 12, 2023 ,   Cruise Industry

Bookings are now open for A-ROSA Cruises' newest fleetmembers A-ROSA ALEA and A-ROSA CLEA - two chartered riverboats scheduled to commence operations for the company in April 2024.

Both vessels will offer a variety of itineraries covering the Northern and Southern Rhine, and the Moselle, featuring 7-night voyages available until October. Subsequently, shorter 5- and 4-night itinerary options will be offered.

A-ROSA is currently offering attractive introductory prices for 2024 bookings made until the end of November. Along with the Super Early Booking Discount, passengers can benefit from a Get-to-Know Bonus, which provides a 20% discount on the cruise fare.

A-ROSA ALEA is set to start its season on April 5, 2024, offering 7-night 'Southern Rhine Experience' itineraries with a roundtrip from Cologne, including stops at Rudesheim, Speyer, Breisach, Basel, Strasbourg, Mainz, and a scenic voyage along the famous Loreley passage via Koblenz.

A-ROSA CLEA will initially focus on the tulip season, commencing on April 7 with 'Rhine Experience North' itineraries taking guests to Belgium and the Netherlands, with the opportunity to participate in an optional excursion to Keukenhof Gardens during their annual springtime tulip flower festival. Departing from Cologne, the ship will visit Willemstad, Ghent, Antwerp, Amsterdam, Hoorn, and Nijmegen.

From early May, both ships will alternate between seven-night itineraries on either the Moselle, Southern Rhine, or Northern Rhine, depending on the departure date. From October onwards, they will transition to shorter four- and five-night cruises, followed by Christmas Markets and festive options.

Measuring 110 meters (360 feet), these two ships are shorter than other A-ROSA vessels on the Rhine, allowing them to navigate directly to the heart of some ports and accommodate 138 guests (A-ROSA ALEA) and 140 guests (A-ROSA CLEA). They offer an intimate ambiance and feature an outdoor lounge area at the bow of the ship, perfect for enjoying scenic views.

Moreover, both vessels will follow the same dining concept as the one featured on the Douro ship A-ROSA ALVA, offering buffet breakfast and lunch, while starters and desserts are selected from the buffet, and the main course is served at the table.

Example Pricing: For a 7-night journey during season S in an outside cabin on deck 1, with Premium All-Inclusive fare: starting from EUR 998 per person (including the Super Early Booking Discount and Get-to-Know Bonus).
