A-Rosa River Cruises’ eco-friendly ship will be named A-Rosa Sena, the line has revealed.

Scheduled to launch in May 2022, the 280-passenger ship is currently under construction at the Concordia Damen shipyard near Rotterdam.

It will start sailing on the Rhine on 21 May, with a seven-night cruise from Cologne visiting Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Dordrecht and Antwerp.

The ship will use an E-Motion concept to allow it to operate on battery power when approaching a port, thereby reducing emissions and noise. 

A-Rosa Sena will feature a seating area on the sundeck at the front of the ship where guests can enjoy the river views, as well as the panorama lounge with a stage and dance floor.

The ship will be the largest in the A-Rosa fleet when it launches and the first vessel on the Rhine to feature four decks.

The line said the ship has been built from the outset with families and multi-generational groups in mind and will offer a range of features such as a dedicated kids’ club room, family cabins sleeping up to five and a separate children’s pool.

A-Rosa UK & Ireland MD Lucia Rowe said: “We are so excited about the arrival of A-Rosa Sena next spring. She will lead the way in sustainable river cruising and will open up river cruising further to the next generations.

“The new renders will give agents a taste of her unmistakable look and feel and we really can’t wait to showcase her next year when she starts sailing.”

The Rhine Discovery – Amsterdam, Floriade Expo 2022 and Antwerp cruise will depart between 11 June 2022 and 17 September 2022, and priced is from £2,499pp, including return flights, transfers, seven-night’s premium all-inclusive cruise with drinks throughout the day and evening, plus an Amsterdam canal cruise and a day at the Floriade Expo.
