Arosa Bella wiki

ARosa Bella cruises on Danube river. The vessel is in the same class with the A-Rosa cruise ships DonnaMia and Riva. Each of these ships is equipped each with two MTU / Maybach marine diesel engines (model "16V 2000 M60") with total power output 1600 kW / 2170 HP. The ship's electrical system consists of three MAN diesel generators (model D2842 , output 380 kW each) and 1 emergency diesel generator (Deutz, power 37 kW). The ship's propulsion ("Schottel") includes 2 twin propellers (type "STP 550") and one Schottel Pump Jet (azimuth bow thruster, model "SPJ 57"). The wheelhouse/bridge and awnings can be lowered when passing under low bridges. The Bella offers complimentary bicycles on land tours and excursions in each of the visited ports.

A-Rosa Bella was launched in 2002 on May 9. Due to its width of 14,4 m, the ship was not delivered via the usual route (North Sea-Baltic Canal-Wadden Sea-Rhine river). Because of the Main-Danube Canal's width restriction of 11, 4 m, the ship was loaded and transported on pontoons (towed via Black Sea) to Danube Delta (Constanta, Romania). Then the riverboat was unloaded and moved under her own power to Oltenita, Romania. The boat's transfer took a total of 22 days.
