A-Rosa, river cruising but not as you know it

Ok so you may be haven’t heard of A-Rosa… but we think they offer a refreshing approach to cruising the waterways of Europe. They have been operating since 2001 and are Germany’s most popular river cruise operator. With a fleet of 11 ships in 2018 they have dedicated 5 to the international markets of Germany/Europe, United Kingdom, USA and Australia.
