Arosa Luna wiki

Being the first of the line's two same class vessels, the ARosa Luna cruise ship is sister to A-Rosa Stella (also operating in France). Each of these ships is equipped with two MTU engines (Maybach marine engines, model "16V 2000 M60" /diesel, total power output 1600 kW / 2100 HP). The ship's propulsion ("Z-drive") is by "Schottel" and includes 2 rudder propellers (type "STP 500" /twin propellers) and 1 Schottel Pump Jet (azimuth thruster, model "SPJ 57"). The riverboat's wheelhouse/bridge and top deck awnings can be lowered when passing under low bridges. The Luna ship offers complimentary bicycles on land tours and excursions in each of the visited ports.

A-Rosa Luna was launched in 2005 on April 7.
