A-ROSA Names New eco-friendly River Cruise Ship - A-ROSA SENA
We have been watching the world of River Cruising as it is high on our to do list for 2022. It looks such an amazing way to explore beautiful parts of the world, and we are pretty certain that we would love it. With sustainability and protecting the environment being high on ours and most peoples agenda it is great to see the cruising world embracing this.
This week A-ROSA River Cruises’ have announced that their groundbreaking, eco-friendly new ship which sets sail in May 2022 is to be named A-ROSA SENA. Not only is it environmentally friendly but it is also family friendly too which is unusual in the world of river cruising.
In this post we give you an insight into what this new river cruise ship has to offer.
A-ROSA SENA is currently under construction at the Concordia Damen shipyard near Rotterdam and the name Sena is taken from the Arabic language and means ‘beauty’. She will start sailing on the Northern Rhine on 21 May 2022, with a seven-night cruise from Cologne visiting Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Dordrecht and Antwerp.
The ship will feature an ‘E-Motion’ concept which is truly innovative and a first on the rivers. Its hybrid propulsion system combines a diesel engine and a separate electric engine, which is powered by batteries. This means that when approaching a port, the ship can switch to battery power, enabling it to arrive almost silently and emission-free.
A-ROSA River Cruises has also released new renders of A-ROSA SENA to showcase its spacious and light-flooded room design. They include one of the seating areas on the sundeck at the front of the ship where guests can enjoy the river views, the elegant lobby which will welcome guests on board and the panorama lounge which will boast a stage and dance floor for guests to enjoy. A new video can also be found on A-ROSA’s YouTube channel here.
This will be the largest ship in the fleet and will be the first vessel on the Rhine to feature four decks, with a length of 135 metres and a width of 17.7 metres. She will have space for 280 passengers with five different cabin categories. A-ROSA SENA has been built from the outset with families and multi-generational groups in mind and will offer a range of impressive features such as a dedicated kids club room, family cabins sleeping up to five and a separate children’s pool.
This looks such a fabulous ship and a perfect option for families wanting to River Cruise. 2022 is going to be a very good year!
