Arosa Aqua wiki

The ARosa Aqua river ship is the first of three same class ships, followed by A-Rosa Brava and A-Rosa Viva.  Each of them has installed energy-efficient four "Volvo Penta" diesel engines (model "D12-450MH", total power 1320 kW / 1800 HP). Each vessel is also equipped with 2 auxiliary diesel generators and 1 diesel generator for operations in port. Propulsion is by "Schottel" - 1 bow thruster type "SPJ 82", and 4 rudder propellers type "STP 200" /twin propellers). The boat's wheelhouse/bridge and the top deck's awnings can be lowered when passing under low bridges. These three vessels represent the beautiful-looking A-Rosa ship design preceding the line's newest "Balcony Suite" ships Flora and Silva. ARosa Aqua ship offers complimentary bicycles on land tours and excursions in each of the visited ports.

ARosa Aqua was launched in 2009 on March 27. The ship was christened in Cologne by Mrs. Inge Kampwerth - a winner in the contest for the "most charming Kolnerin". In the week before the naming ceremony, captain Michael Hofmann navigated the ship (on its own power) passing through the North Sea-Baltic Canal from Rostock to Cologne. During the March 2009 transfer passage, the riverboat was protected with wood paneling.
