Arosa River Cruises: Europe U.S. Style
- River cruises on Arosa ships are wonderful adventures, and beginning this year three vessels are being dedicated exclusively to river cruises catering to Americans.These river cruises are unique because they are truly all inclusive. Airfare from various U.S. gateways, gratuities, both nonalcoholic and alcoholic beverages, transfers and shore excursions are all included in the cruise fare.
The typical Arosa ship carries 200 passengers, and a crew of 46. What a wonderful ratio! The service is excellent, and one could not ask for anything more. Payment on board is by credit card, which eliminates having to deal with exchange rates. Excursions are well planned and schedules are reliably adhered to.
All cabins on the three decks offer wonderful river views. While some of them include large balconies, all are very spacious, and offer more luxury and comfort than many sea going cruise ships. Housekeeping is offered twice daily, and more often by request. You will never want for fresh towels.
River Cruises: The Dining Experience
On Arosa river cruises morning and mid-day meals are served buffet style, while evening meals are a fine dining experience without the pretence. Leave the evening gowns and tuxedos at home. There is an excellent baker on board to tempt you with wonderful choices at every meal. The baked goods are so popular that Arosa makes fresh baked breads available for purchase on the last day of most river cruises. The master chef provides an amazing assortment of culinary delights every night, and the special regional treats provided add to one’s appreciation of each port of call. One should not miss the gourmet dinners provided by the maitre d’hotel and chef to honor regional wines and foods. Each is a gastronomic experience worth savoring. The bartenders are able to make any concoction requested, and are well versed in wines of regions visited on the cruise.
The Arosa River Cruises crew is friendly and professional and offers the best service in the industry. Each crew member strives to please cruisers in every way, and on cruises dedicated to the North American market, each will be fluent in English. Expect that all communication with passengers on these cruises will be exclusively in English.
Each ship offers a swimming pool or a whirlpool on the upper deck, miniature golf, and shuffleboard. A wellness spa staffed by highly skilled personnel offers state of the art spa services, and an excellent fitness area as well. But on beautiful sunny days, guests on most river cruises prefer to enjoy the view from the sun deck.
The nightly entertainment on river cruises cannot rival that offered by today’s ocean going behemoths, but guests find the music and games very enjoyable indeed. Local entertainers are frequently brought aboard to enhance the cultural experience.
River Cruises: Ports of Call
Arosa offers cruises of the Rhine and Danube rivers with their enchanting villages, wine regions and majestic cities. At each port of call along the river a choice of three excursions is available, and of course, they are included in the cruise fare. Each is lead by an experienced English speaking guide who is there to educate and excite. Excursions never leave before breakfast, so there is no need to rush to join a tour.
We were very impressed by the presentation made at Arosa’s gala reception, and excited to research cruise reviews and find the cruise line is very well received and appreciated by cruise guests and travel writers alike.
Happy Cruising. Andrew Kruglanski, Cruisin Susan Cruise Blog.
