A-ROSA Flussschiff GmbH is one of Europe’s leading premium providers of city and nature tours on the Danube, Douro, Rhône/Saône, Rhine/Main/Moselle and Seine.
The company operates offices in Rostock and in Chur/Switzerland and currently employs around 780 people from 25 different nations.
A-ROSA was founded in 2000 as part of Deutsche Seereederei GmbH and began operating in 2002 – initially with two ships on the Danube. The company responded to the increasing demand for river cruises by steadily expanding its fleet. Today, this distinctive fleet consists of 12 modern ships that meet the latest safety and environmental standards.
British private equity firm Duke Street acquired shares in A-ROSA Flussschiff GmbH in February 2018. The management team consists of Jörg Eichler, chief executive officer, and Markus Zoepke, chief operation officer. Both are also shareholders in the company.
In the coming years, the company’s premium position and quality leadership will be further strengthened by investments in product innovation, marketing and sales. To continue a growth path in the core business, the focus is on the construction of new vessels and expansion to include new destinations. The E-Motion ship, which will be used for Rhine cruises from 2021, will set new standards for the industry.
A-ROSA is the creator of cruises with a difference that take in cities, towns and countryside along Europe’s most beautiful rivers. On board, Premium all inclusive rate guests can enjoy varied buffets, high-quality drinks and access to the SPA-ROSA, which features a sauna, massage room and gym. One of the highlights of the cruises is the opportunity to relax on the sun deck or balcony and watch the magnificent scenery drift by. The ships dock in central locations, close to the heart of European metropolises, renowned historical sites and famous cultural and natural attractions – providing unforgettable experiences. To ensure that the cruise is a hit with the whole family, there are generously sized cabins, a Kids Club and heated outdoor pools, as well as a programme to suit every guest’s needs. What’s more, children aged 15 and under travel free.
