A-Rosa River Cruises has expanded its collection of themed cruises for 2024 to offer its biggest programme ever, covering a range of breaks from jazz and swing to yoga and nutrition.

Ulrike Homuth is a yoga & nutrition instructor

Health and lifestyle coach Ulrike Homuth will teach guests about yoga and nutrition during a specialist sailing.

New themes now on sale in the UK include dance, jazz & swing, beauty & spa and yoga & nutrition alongside the existing themes of meditation, craft and photography.

During each cruise, guests are joined on-board by coaches or artists and each specialist themed itinerary involves either workshops, lectures and/or evening entertainment to ensure customers return home enriched by their chosen theme.

Available on the Rhine and Danube rivers on selected departure dates in March and November 2024, each cruise has a five-night duration.

A-Rosa welcome groups and will discuss requirements on an individual basis. It offers generous group discounts and up to two free places per group, depending on the group size. Groups can either book cruise only or packaged with flights via A-Rosa packages.
