Rostock, 17 June 2021 – Yesterday, A-ROSA successfully welcomed guest back onto its cruises on the river Douro. After an enjoyable first night on board in Porto, this morning, A-ROSA ALVA and her guests departed on a seven-day cruise through the Douro Valley to the Spanish border and back.

Cruises on the Danube will resume in two days’ time on 19 June, on board A-ROSA DONNA, calling at three European capital cities – Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava. By the end of this month cruises on the Rhine will be back in operation and by the middle of the summer, A-ROSA plans to have three quarters of its fleet operating along the Rhine, Main, Moselle, Danube, Douro and Rhone rivers.

Jörg Eichler, CEO of A-ROSA Flussschiff GmbH comments: “We are delighted that we have been able to set sail again and that our 2021 season is now finally underway. The feedback from our guests yesterday was so encouraging. Our comprehensive hygiene measures and highly trained crew made sure each of our guests could enjoy their cruise from the very moment they stepped on board.”

Having sailed successfully for over five months in 2020, A-ROSA used the winter months to further fine tune its sophisticated health and hygiene protocols. 2021 will see the return of A-ROSA’s popular gourmet buffets, plus as in 2020, the SPA-ROSA with its sauna, treatments room and gym, the pool/whirlpool and a range of excursions will be available, all in compliance with strict hygiene measures.

Full details of A-ROSA’s health and hygiene measures can be found on its website www.arosa-cruises.com. A seamless COVID-19 testing strategy has also been designed to support the line’s protocols and providing guest with the utmost protection.

Itineraries plan to go ahead as per normal, however due to official regulations or changing local conditions, adjustments may be necessary.
