Current Travel Information

Your holiday is our top priority! That's why our A-ROSA Care Team always keeps an eye on current developments that could influence our cruises. Since events often occur spontaneously – and can also change or settle at short notice – we always inform you as soon as possible about relevant topics on this page.


Strikes in the public sector or long-distance traffic can have an impact on our journeys. Currently, there are no restrictions due to strikes that we are aware of.

Construction works

There are currently no restrictions due to construction works on our rivers.

Water levels

Since water levels vary at very short notice, it may be necessary to adjust the itineraries and if required the ports of embarkation and disembarkation. We are in constant dialogue with the port authorities and respective water management offices along the itineraries. We review the respective conditions for each river stretch between individual ports daily and ensure the safe realization of our cruises. In principle, a cruise is still feasible even if the water level is low. Only beyond a certain point can the course of a sailing not be carried out as planned.

There are currently no restrictions due to water levels on our rivers.


At A-ROSA, the safety and wellbeing of all guests and crewmembers is always our highest priority. We are following the developments in Ukraine very closely and are in constant contact with the foreign port authorities.

Danube: Our Danube cruises start and end in Austria. On the 18-night cruise “Danube Delta” short passages on the way to the Danube estuary lead along the Romanian-Ukrainian border. We have therefore decided to slightly adjust this itinerary. The A-ROSA ships will no longer call at Tulcea, but instead at the Romanian city of Constanţa, which is located at the south-western Black Sea coast. Thus, we will bypass the Romanian-Ukrainian border zone and sail exclusively in the Romanian part of the Danube Delta, which is not affected by the current situation in Ukraine. All other Danube cruises will be operated as scheduled.


At A-ROSA, the safety and wellbeing of all guests and crewmembers is always our highest priority. We continue to closely monitor current developments as well as official government regulations regarding the corona virus COVID-19.

There are currently no restrictions due to COVID-19 on our waterways.

Fuel prices

The global energy crisis caused by the Russo-Ukrainian War and the global economic situation have led to a significant increase in fuel prices. During the past years, we were able to secure long-term supply contracts for diesel fuel at fixed prices, upon which our cruise fares were based. We were therefore fortunate enough to be able to offer our 2022 cruises without a fuel surcharge. Following the expiration of these contracts, we have made great efforts in recent months to find economically viable follow-up contracts. However, due to the current situation and the continuing uncertainty on the energy markets, diesel fuel purchase prices are still far above the past market level. For this reason, we are unfortunately forced to partially pass the increased fuel prices onto our guests based on our General Terms and Conditions (§5). We ask for your understanding concerning this measure.  

Wishing you a wonderful holiday!

At A-ROSA, the health, safety and well-being of all guests and crew members is always our top priority. For this reason, our A-ROSA Care Team has developed a comprehensive health and hygiene concept, which meets national and international health standards. This concept is continuously adapted to current conditions and regulations. Decisions are always made based on these developments, the official directives of authorities as well as the travel advice of the German Foreign Office according to the motto ‘Safety First’.

Of course, it is possible to sail safely and also have a great time whilst on holiday. You can enjoy our usual friendly service, plenty of relaxation and a great atmosphere on board. Our crew is passionate about creating a wonderful, carefree holiday for you on board.
