A-ROSA Romantic Cruises Cruise Reviews

My wife with the piranha she caught on one of the expeditions. The guide saved it to throw to a large hawk, who swooped down to grab it off the surface of the river.

Outstanding service

Review for Aqua to Amazon River

The ship was very comfortable, and the cuisine was excellent. Most outstanding was the service: the guides were excellent, and the cruise director was extremely helpful. I had a problem with my electronic reader that required a good internet connection, so she arranged to have a boat take me 10 minutes upriver to get a better signal. The only problem on the trip was poor internet connectivity, but ...

They blew me away but there is no Iquitos or Nauta on the ports list?

After my internet “research” I felt that the Aqua ships were the nicest ones available. The food was amazing. As a carnivore from the Pacific Northwest I had one of my best fish meals ever one afternoon and every other meal was also very good. All of the crew from Crhistian the bartender to George and Alex the guides were attentive and knowledgeable and proficient. The animals cooperated and ...

Awful holiday as a non german speaking guest

We chose the cruise to visit the Xmas markets. On boarding the boat we were informed of a complete itinerary change due to low water levels, however they obviously put no effort into choosing an alternative itinerary as it was a vastly inferior itinerary with most places closed in 2 of the 3 stops we went to and the markets a far cry from the ones we were supposed to visit (except ...

I liked the ports of call, especially Costa Rica & Cartagena. The service was excellent - all the staff were friendly and treated us like we were special. Food was diverse and well presented. Captain Matthias was always informativeand greeted the guests on several occasions. Our cabin 5122 was a little tight but we got used to it- between the bed and mirrored desk/dresser. The cabin was ...

Our family decided to take a Christmas Market cruise but wanted to spend time in London. We selected ARosa because of their selection of 4-day itineraries and their moderate pricing . We had no doubts about the ports of call but were somewhat concerned about the communication and food offerings on a german-based cruise line. Once on-board what we found was a beautiful, spotless boat, an ...

Wonderful area, interesting river on a mediocre ship

We chose it as we wanted to revisit an area of France we knew well from at least 25 years of camping among the vineyards of southern France. We arrived in Lyon on excellent Eurostar direct from St Pancras. We were met and whisked swiftly through the lovely city of Lyon to the pretty riverside, to embark on A-ROSA Stella, emblazoned with ( rather naff looking ) red lips! We were swiftly ...

The southern Rhine Christmas market theme cruise. Taking in Mannheim , Heidelberg, Strasbourg and Mainz. The excursions where add ons and needed to be booked as in most cases except for Strasbourg your where moored to far away and all on the German side of the river. The excursion was not a guided one as all it was , was a transfer to a market with set time of collection. No guide no ...

Our second river cruise and was just as wonderful

Review for Aqua to Europe - River Cruise

We selected this cruise because the date was right. We selected this cruise, as well, based upon our tourism company´s recommendation. It was a relaxing and quite nice cruise up the Rhine. Included some cities we had visited by car as well as other locations we had not been to. The room service was quite wonderful. The fellow who had been assigned to our section of rooms spoke far better ...
