A-Rosa reveals renderings of new ship, Sena

The ship will start sailing on the Northern Rhine on May 21, 2022

A-Rosa River Cruises’  new ship which sets sail in May 2022 is to be named A-Rosa Sena, taken from the Arabic for ‘beauty’.

The ship is currently under construction at the Concordia Damen shipyard near Rotterdam and will start sailing on the Northern Rhine on May 21, 2022, with a seven-night cruise from Cologne visiting Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Dordrecht and Antwerp.

The ship will feature an ‘E-Motion’ concept, a hybrid propulsion system combines a diesel engine and a separate electric engine, 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. They include a seating area on the sundeck at the front of the ship where guests can enjoy the river views, the lobby which will welcome guests on board and the panorama lounge which will have 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, with a length of 135m and a width of 17.7 metres. It will have space for 280 passengers with five different cabin categories. A-Rosa said 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.

Lucia Rowe, managing director of A-Rosa River Cruises, said: “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 unmistakable look and feel and we really can’t wait to showcase her next year when she starts sailing.”
