Specialists in flexible journeys on Europe’s most beautiful waterways, A-ROSA River Cruises, has announced a new partnership with Aviate to offer their full collection of dates and itineraries as fully-protected packages for the first time.
Exclusively for travel agents, the new relationship will give agents without their own ATOL license the option to create tailormade packages with regional flights and pre and post-cruise stays, all wrapped up in one simple booking.
This adds another, more bespoke way to book with the operator, which also offers selected departures through a choice of tour operator partners.
The move comes as A-ROSA ramps up its focus on its UK business, with a ship launch and a new Regional Sales Manager in place to support the trade.
Renowned for its relaxed take on river cruising, A-ROSA has more than 20 years’ experience and operates on the Danube, Rhine, Main, Moselle, Rhône, Saône, Seine and Douro rivers. Cruises are between five and 17 days in duration.
On board an A-ROSA river cruise, clients can expect a generous premium all-Inclusive package as standard. This includes casual, regionally-inspired dining served without set times or table sizes and over 100 complimentary premium international and local wines, beers, spirits, cocktails, mocktails, soft drinks and teas and coffees available round the clock.
A-ROSA offer a balance of scenic daytime sailing and longer days (and overnight stays) in port.
There’s a real emphasis on choice with a wide selection of optional excursions and the opportunity for guests to simply walk from the ship and explore destinations at their own pace.
With a unique all-ages-welcome ethos, the line also appeals to families and multi-generational groups. Among the perks include free cruises for kids aged 15 and under, flexible cabin layouts and a kids club on key school holiday dates.
A-ROSA will take its family and multi-gen offering to the next level this May with the launch of its first next-generation ship, A-ROSA SENA.
Created with discovery-loving guests of all ages in mind, she will feature several ‘firsts’ on a European river cruise ship including innovative family cabins for up to five people, a kids pool, a dedicated kids club room with slide and climbing wall plus informal family-friendly dining options.
For adults, an extra-large spa, chic balcony cabins as standard and a large choice of dining options will tick the boxes.
A-ROSA SENA will be the first of the line’s hybrid-powered ships with the ability to switch to battery power when entering and leave port for emission-free, almost silent sailing. This, combined with a host of other eco-friendly credentials will make her the most climate-friendly ship on Europe’s rivers.
She will also spearhead the line’s new premium all-inclusive upgrade project which, in 2023, will roll out across the rest of A-ROSA’s fleet with a ‘reimagination’ of what makes an A-ROSA river cruise unique.
The upgrade has been designed to make the experience more immersive, more personalised and more inclusive than ever before. Experiences will include on-shore dining experiences in stand-out locations, the option to explore authentically with tips from an innovative local ‘trend scout’, and a refreshed dining and drinks scene that will focus on the locations A-ROSA sails with fresh, local produce and regional dishes, served both buffet-style and waiter service.
With generous commission levels, a 100% trade-friendly promise and the option to package entirely bespoke plans for clients – there’s a lot to love with A-ROSA. Plus, book a new package before the end of April 2022 and you’ll also receive a luxury gift (worth up to £75) as a thank you!
