Arosa Viva wiki

The ARosa Viva river ship is in the same vessel-class with ARosa Aqua and Brava ships. 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. The Viva ship offers complimentary bicycles on land tours and excursions in each of the visited ports.

A-Rosa Viva was launched in 2010 on March 26. The ship was christened in Basel (Switzerland) by Mrs. Amanda Ammann - "Miss Switzerland 2007" contest winner. In the week before the naming ceremony, the vessel was navigated on its own power through the North Sea-Baltic Canal from Rostock to Cologne (Koln-Deutz port), where the last equipment of the boat was installed. During the March 2010 transfer passage, the ship was protected with wood paneling.
