Popular river cruise line A-ROSA is expanding its fleet for 2024 with the addition of two ships – the A-ROSA ALEA and A-ROSA CLEA.
The new ships will each welcome a maximum of 138 passengers, which is a little smaller than the rest of the fleet, and will offer the relaxed, flexible cruising style that A-ROSA is known for.
Both ships will offer Rhine cruises for 2024, before switching things up a little the year after. One of the ships (TBC) will transfer to the Seine from 2025, offering cruises from the heart of Paris to Le Havre on the coast.
The other will sail the Gironde and Garonne rivers in the Bordeaux region of France, a first for the cruise line.
The ships will offer cabins measuring 16m2 with either a window or French Balcony, while suite options are also available. Each ship has a whirlpool, a fitness room, and three different lounge areas.
It’s not yet clear whether these ships will be family-friendly, as some of the other ships in the A-ROSA fleet are.
Dining will be similar to onboard the A-ROSA ALVA which sails on the Douro – breakfast and lunch will be a buffet, while at dinner the starters and desserts are also served buffet style, with mains served to the table.
“These two ships will be a great addition to our fleet. Demand in the UK for cruises on the Rhine is very strong at the moment so we are delighted to be able to offer more capacity for next year. I believe their intimate feel and attractive dining concept will really appeal to the UK market and help us to grow our position as the go-to for relaxed, flexible river cruises on Europe’s most beautiful rivers even further.Lucia Rowe, managing director of A-ROSA River Cruises UK & Ireland
