A-ROSA’s groundbreaking, an eco-friendly new ship that sets sail in May 2022 is to be named A-ROSA SENA. The name Sena is taken from the Arabic language and means ‘beauty’.
The ship is currently under construction at the Concordia Damen shipyard near Rotterdam. 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 has also released a video and new images of A-ROSA SENA. The new renders show one of the seating areas on the sundeck where guests can enjoy the river views, the elegant lobby which will welcome guests onboard, and the panorama lounge which will boast a stage and dance floor for guests to enjoy.
This will be the largest ship in the fleet and will be the first vessel on the Rhine to feature four decks, has a length of 135m, a width of 17.7 meters. It 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 kids club room, family cabins, and a kids pool.
Birgit Eisbrenner, regional director Australia & New Zealand of A-ROSA River Cruises comments: “We are so excited about the arrival of A-ROSA SENA next Spring. She will lead the way in sustainable river cruising and will open up river cruising further to the next generations. The new renders will give agents a taste of her look and feel and we really can’t wait to showcase her next year when she starts sailing.”
