AIDA Cruises Takes Delivery Of AIDAprima

AIDA Cruises has successfully taken delivery of its largest cruise ship to date, AIDAprima, during a formal ceremony at the shipyard earlier today.

The ship departed Nagasaki today, where it will arrive in Hamburg towards the end of April. AIDAprima, the 11th ship in the fleet, will be christened by 13-year-old German actress Emma Schweiger on May 7, 2016, in front of an audience of millions as the climax of the 827th HAMBURG PORT ANNIVERSARY.

Felix Eichhorn, President  of AIDA Cruises, said: “20 years ago, AIDA launched its concept of modern cruising. With our new flagship and the three newbuilds to follow, the company will continue to provide important growth impulses for the German cruise market. We are once again charting new territory by being the first German cruise line to offer cruises starting from Germany the whole year round. I am convinced that we will reach new guest groups with our unique variety of offerings aboard AIDAprima.”

From April 30, 2016, Hamburg will be the home port for seven-day round trips to some of Western Europe’s most beautiful metropolises such as London (Southampton), Paris (Le Havre), Brussels (Zeebrugge), and Amsterdam.
