A-ROSA-SENAOn 18 June 2022, the A-ROSA SENA departed from Cologne for her maiden voyage with her first guests on board. Prior to this, the ship was blessed in Dsseldorf by Deacon Michael Inden, as well as christened by Clara Eichler, daughter of A-ROSA CEO Jrg Eichler, in the presence of the management, the investors and the crew.



Due to supply challenges, the first cruise started slightly later than initially planned, which meant that this ceremony took place in a small circle only.

Thanks to the hybrid propulsion system, the first departure was accomplished with the help of electrical energy from the battery storage. Guests and crew were excited about the sustainable new ship A-ROSA SENAs design is truly unique on the river.

Together with the spacious interior layout, she offers a completely new travel experience, comments hotel manager Dennis Brenner. Captain Ulrich Schwalbe adds Thanks to the hybrid propulsion system and the exhaust gas purification filter, you don’t notice any emissions on board and can just enjoy the pure cruising experience.
