Under construction at Concordia Damen, Netherlands, A-Rosa Sena will sail for the first time on May 21, 2022, on its ‘Rhine Adventure, Amsterdam & Rotterdam’ itinerary.
Two pools and five cabin categories
For the interior design, the line teamed up with JOI-Design based in Hamburg, which has experience in the hotel and restaurant sectors.
An A-Rosa Flussschiff spokesperson said the vessel, due to operate from Cologne to Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Antwerp, will be ‘extremely spacious’ with a 17.7 mtr width.
Its up to 280 passengers will be able to choose from five cabin categories, including family cabins located in a designated family area.
In addition to the classic buffet restaurant, the vessel will have a designated speciality restaurant with dishes served at the table.
A spa area and fitness room will be available, along with two pools on the sundeck.
A-Rosa Sena will feature a hybrid engine configuration comprising a diesel-electric propulsion, complete with storage batteries. The line aims for A-Rosa to switch to fully electric propulsion on approach of destinations and when manoeuvring in ports, with the diesel engine operating outside cities while sailing port to port.
