The itineraries are created specifically for active travellers seeking cultural adventures and an opportunity to delve more deeply into passions like food, wine, art, music, and history.

Standouts on A-ROSA Silva are its massive spa, salon and gym. It's also got a steam room and a sauna with a vast picture window that offers great views. In keeping with its commitment to wellness and travel, Silva has a pool on the sun deck, and bicycles are stocked for passenger use in port.

Please note: some dining outlets/menu items and premium, branded and international drinks may not be included and may incur a surcharge payable locally.  Meals, snacks and drinks may be available at selected times only
