UPDATE FROM A-ROSA RIVER CRUISES – 22 June 2021

 

At A-ROSA, the safety and wellbeing of all guests and crewmembers is always our highest priority. We follow current developments and recommendations closely and are in close contact with the relevant port and health authorities. Any decisions we make about when to start operating our cruises are based on the regulations and instructions given by the relevant authorities.

 

The ongoing vaccination campaigns as well as the measures to contain the pandemic are showing success in Europe. For this reason, we will resume our voyages from 16 June 2021 on the Douro, from 19 June 2021 on the Danube, from 27 June 2021 on the Rhine and from 31 July 2021 on the Rhône.

Rhine, Moselle, Main

Cruises on the Rhine will resume from 27 June 2021 with the 7 night “Rhine Experience Course Basel” itinerary on A-ROSA BRAVA and the 7 night “Rhine Romantic with Moselle” on A-ROSA FLORA. From 13 July 2021, the Rhine fleet will be supplemented by the A-ROSA SILVA and completed on 17 July 2021 by the A-ROSA AQUA.

 

A-ROSA BRAVA, A-ROSA SILVA and A-ROSA AQUA will sail all their planned cruises this season. The A-ROSA FLORA will take over the 7 night “Rhine Romantic with Moselle” voyage from its identical sister ship, the A-ROSA SILVA, until 13 July 2021. After this, she will set off on new voyages along the most beautiful cities on the Moselle and in the Middle Rhine Valley.

 

Please note, Germany has currently banned all but essential travel from the UK.

 

Due to the current country regulations, touristic cruises on the Rhine must be suspended for all private customers of A-ROSA Flussschiff GmbH with departures up to and including 26 June 2021.

 

Danube

Cruises on the Danube will resume from 19 June 2021 with the 7 night “Danube Classic” itinerary. This route will be operated in a weekly cycle until 17 July 2021, running from Saturday to Saturday. The Sunday departures of the 7 night “Danube Classic” on board the A-ROSA DONNA will take place from Saturday up to and including 11 July 2021. All guests of the A-ROSA DONNA have the option to start their trip one day earlier - our service team will contact those affected regarding this. From the weekend 17/18 July 2021 we will once again be able to offer our guests both a Saturday and Sunday departure of the 7 night “Danube Classic” voyage.

 

From 29 June 2021, the Danube Delta and Danube Cataracts itineraries will resume.
