Following the successful restart of the brand's Douro River cruises (in Portugal), A-ROSA Cruises recently announced the restart of Rhine River voyages on June 17, its Danube River itineraries on June 20, 2020. The company’s French river shipping operations are planned to resume on July 11, 2020.
Depending on the riverboat, passenger capacity is being reduced for the first departures. Onboard, guests can enjoy enhanced service and multi-course meals. Comfortable seating arrangements that guarantee social distancing add to the relaxing experience. Fitness rooms and pools are also available, subject to hygiene protocols. SPA-ROSA continues to offer beauty treatments and massages. Bike and bus trips, as well as walking tours, take place with reduced group sizes.
A-ROSA’s itineraries follow the schedules published in its brochure but are subject to adjustments in case imposed by local authorities. The 7-night “Danube Classics” is a highlight, combining beautiful scenery with a rich history and calls on 3 European capital cities - Budapest, Bratislava and Vienna. On the Rhine, Northern metropolises like Rotterdam and Amsterdam may be visited, in addition to Moselle River Valley with its lush vineyards and ancient castles.
AROSA’s cruisetours in Portugal are through the Douro River Valley, which is surrounded by terraced vineyards up to the border with Spain. Departures are from Oporto, on roundtrip 7-day itineraries.
