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 English than German. Being an American expat and my partner, a native German, is bi-lingual and we both could talk to this fellow. We have been told than in 2018 The Aqua is becoming International with English being the second but equal language with German. From my perspective, it has begun.
The food service was varied and quite fine. The waiter in our section is Hungarian and having heard me speaking in English began our week with English dining room service.
Being a smoker, I totally appreciate the back of the ship´s area for smokers. We, had a great deal of rain the last 2 days and the upper deck was not conducive to being there.
Would go on another A Rosa Cruise. Plan on a short stay in 2018 at a resort of A Rosa.
Not certain what the category is listed by A Rosa but it is on the 3rd level and with that category, many drinks were "no extra charge" In the lower categories, more basic, they paid extra for more unusual drinks, for example milk coffee. Filter coffee was available for any category.
