   August 11, 2021 ,   Cruise Industry

AROSA Cruises' eco-friendly newbuild which is scheduled to set sail in May 2022 will be named A-ROSA Sena. The project was initially announced under the name "A-Rosa E-Motion Ship".

The name Sena is from the Arabic language (a variant of Sana) and means beauty/grace.

Arosa Sena is currently under construction at the Concordia Damen shipyard in Werkendam (close to Rotterdam Holland).

She will start cruising on the Northern Rhine on May 21, 2022, with a 7-night voyage from Cologne Germany visiting Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Dordrecht, Antwerp.

The new riverboat will boast an ‘E-Motion’ concept which is innovative and a first on the rivers. A hybrid propulsion system combines a diesel engine and a separate electric engine powered by batteries. When approaching a port, the vessel can switch to battery power in order to arrive silently and emission-free.
