Arosa Flora wiki

  • Being the line's newest vessel, the ARosa Flora river cruise ship is in the same vessel-class with A-Rosa Silva (2012). Each of the riverboats is equipped with 4 energy-efficient "Volvo Penta" diesel engines (model "D12-450MH", total power output 1320 kW / 1800 HP), plus 2 auxiliary diesel generators and 1 diesel generator (for in-port operations). Ship's propulsion is "Schottel" and includes 1 bow thruster (type "SPJ 82") and 4 rudder propellers (type "STP 200" /twin propellers). The wheelhouse/bridge and top deck awnings can be lowered when passing under low bridges.
  • The Flora ship offers complimentary bicycles on land tours and excursions in each of the visited ports.
  • A-Rosa Flora was launched in 2014 on March 30. The ship was christened in Mainz (Germany) by Mrs Yvonne Catterfeld - German TV actress (movies and shows) and singer. The ship was ready by the end of November 2013, but the launch was postponed for strategic reasons. To save space, the shipbuilder Neptune Werf relocated the vessel to the Meyer Werft's shipyard in Papenburg, where it stayed until the new delivery date.
