Arosa Donna

Classic Danube Cruise from Passau (8 Days)

Part of the stylish A-Rosa fleet, the A-Rosa Donna offers a selection of well-designed itineraries focusing on the very best of the mighty Danube. The ship has 100 air-conditioned, outside cabins across four categories and her extensive public amenities promise relaxation and recreation as well as opportunities for fitness and well-being. Take some time out to get pampered in the Spa Rosa or enjoy the views from the upper deck as you take a dip in the pool or hone your golf skills on the putting green. There are two pricing programs available with this ship and applicable itineraries: Premium All Inclusive and Basic Rate. All our pricing shown here is for the 'All Inclusive Program'. This is a bi-lingual ship with information provided in both English and German, and an international cruise host on board.** Children (2 - 15 years) travel free of charge, if cabin is shared with at least one adult. Please contact us for more information.
