The well-appointed four-star A-Rosa Flora first set sail in 2014, and offers a home away from home as she sails along the Rhine, Main and Danube, offering truly spectacular views from her panoramic windows. Sip on a cooling drink as you soak up the sun or relax in the shade on the spacious sun deck. And be sure to take a dip in the inviting waters of the outdoor heated pool during your cruise! Dine in style in the outdoor restaurant, and why not let your hair down on the dance floor of the panorama lounge? And how about an indulgent visit to the on-board spa, where you’ll find a wide range of high-quality treatments from the professionally-trained team. Then, why not relax in the organic sauna as you admire those ever-changing panoramic views? Or if you like to keep active, you won’t want to miss the superb gym, offering a wide range of equipment including modern cardio equipment. With all this to enjoy, the A-Rosa Flora offers you all the creature comforts and facilities you’d expect from a modern hotel, but on the water, and with the added benefit of ever-changing scenic views.
