A-ROSA River Cruises’ ship, A-ROSA SILVA has resumed sailing on the Rhine and Main rivers. The ship restarted on Sunday 27 September 2020 and this move means that all four of A-ROSA’s Rhine ships are now back operating.
Jörg Eichler, CEO of A-ROSA Flussschiff GmbH, comments: “Germany is currently one of the few countries where international guests can travel to without having to quarantine on return. Now that we have additional capacity we would encourage agents who have any clients who are looking to get away soon to consider river cruising as an option. The ship remains within Germany at all times and these are beautiful, scenic routes are perfect for an autumn or pre-Christmas holiday. We’ve been back successfully sailing on the Rhine for over three months now, have a comprehensive health and hygiene concept in place and the feedback from our guests tells us that they feel safe onboard and fully able to relax and enjoy their holiday.”
The ship is currently operating a series of seven night ‘Main Romantic’ cruises sailing the route from Cologne to Nuremberg or vice versa. Guests can enjoy picturesque landscapes and the chance to visit various UNESCO World Heritage Sites. From Cologne, the first port of call is Koblenz, the crossing point of the Rhine and Moselle rivers and where the famous Ehrenbreitstein Fortress and the German Corner can be visited. After a trip through the Middle Rhine Valley with its countless castles and the Loreley Passage, the ship reaches Frankfurt and the small town of Wertheim with its old castle complex. Finally, before reaching Nuremberg, the Bavarian town of Bamberg is visited, whose old town has been a UNSECO World Heritage Site since 1993 and is best known for its old town hall in the middle of the Regnitz.
Towards the end of October, the ship will sail two Moselle itineraries from Cologne before sailing some pre-Christmas festive cruises.
