A'Rosa river cruising

A'Rosa is a river cruise company few Australians have heard of.

We like experiences that attract an international mix and a range of ages.

A'Rosa is well-established and Germany-based. They offer a wider choice of cruises from 3 days to 16 days, sailing the Seine, Douro, Rhone, Rhine, Mosel, Main and Danube rivers.

At the Premium 4-star level, A'Rosa gives great value, they are family friendly, have bicycles on board, fitness studio, saunas and offer a range of optional excursions.

On some sailings they offer a cut-price 'basic' formula, with savings around 50% if you like the freedom to enjoy lunches and dinners ashore.

We promote their 'international' range of cruises which attract a mix of nationalities and ages.
