A-ROSA ALVA

Why cruise on this ship?

This is how A-ROSA imagine holidays in Portugal: Cruising down the Douro river while feeling relaxed and at ease. A little time in the pool, a round of mini golf and beautiful views from the sun deck, luxurious atmosphere in your cabin and body treatments in the spa area. Feel always fresh, relaxed and ready to experience Portugal's most beautiful cities and towns.

Dining

There are sumptuous buffets with preparation stations for you to enjoy in the dining room or al fresco on the top deck. Casual and comfortable is your definition of a great dining experience. Or perhaps you enjoy a served dinner service with delectable cuisine, surrounded by fine linens, crystal and china in a semi-private environment. Whatever you decide, you can design the perfect setting for you.

The Market Restaurant

The Market Restaurant is the ship’s Dining Room (no table reservations needed). It has an open kitchen and Buffet station. The A-ROSA Alva’s dining room menu features low-calorie, itinerary-based (regional) specialties and traditional Mediterranean dishes. Food on board is prepared with fresh locally sourced ingredients and products.

Dining is a truly un-regimented affair – unlike other river vessels, the dining room opens its welcoming arms when you are ready, rather than at a specified time. A lavish buffet with a la minute cookery stations entices you with fresh ingredients and plenty of choice. In addition, a speciality waiter service restaurant offers an alternative option, with a new menu every night and the opportunity to dine here up to three times during the week. Weather permitting, you can choose to dine al fresco around pool as you watch the beautiful scenery pass by.

On some evenings, served onboard will be a themed 3-course-dinner in a reserved part of the restaurant. A-ROSA advises guests to sign up for this evening at the reception or with the Maître as seats are limited. On these evenings, the buffet restaurant is also open as usual.

The themed evenings are at an extra charge.

Entertaining

Time may fly during an exciting shuffleboard or giant chess game or even practice your putting game. What really matters is that you take all the time in the world to do whatever you want.

The Sun Deck

Time on the sun deck can be measured in sunsets, laps in the pool, glasses of wine or the number of new friends you’ve made. But for most, time just stands still as you take in Europe’s fabled towns and picturesque countryside from your chaise lounge.

The motto topside on the sun deck is “anything is possible, but nothing is required… just enjoy.”

  • Lounge

Enrichment

A-ROSA offers a vast variety of shore excursions with every itinerary and these are clustered based on the interest of our guests - e.g. Adventure tours, Discovery, Gourmet, Bike etc. Shore excursions∘ are optional and can be booked on board.

Guests can have a look and browse the shore excursion offer prior to come on board and can then make their bookings with the Cruise Manager on board.
