Spotlight on
A-ROSA CRUISES

Scoop: Providing intimate cruises of some of Europe's most eye-pleasing riverside cities and villages since 2002, the company expanded its reach to North American travelers last year and redefined all-inclusive river cruising. On cruises along the Danube, Rhine, and Rhône/Saône, guests get up close to cities such as Budapest and Avignon with a selection of complimentary excursions and free use of bikes. Onboard perks include open dining and bar, full-service spa, sauna, gym, pools, sundeck, putting green, and most accommodations with French or full balconies. 

What's new: This year, A-Rosa introduces family suites with the launch of its new ship, the A-Rosa Flora. Nearly double the size of standard rooms on A-Rosa's two other ships, the suites make room for the brood with a European Queen bed, convertible couch, and upper Pullman berth. 

Information: arosacruises.com

Deal: Free one-night stay at a hotel of A-Rosa's choice either immediately prior to cruise or immediately after, plus private transfer to and from airport and hotel.
