AIDA Cruises is the largest cruise liner in Germany and is headquartered in Rostock.
Aida Cruises caters to the market of active and casual cruisers. Its market is predominantly young and fun loving German speaking guests, who enjoy a "club resorts" style of cruising.
Its ships sail to many exciting destinations around the world. In the summer, its itinerary includes the Baltic Sea, Mediterranean, North Sea, Canada and New England. Whilst in winter, it heads to the Caribbean, Canary Islands and Middle East.
The cruise operator has a fleet of seven ships, with two new ones in the pipeline. Papenberg based shipbuilder Meyer Weft will complete construction of the ships for delivery in spring 2011 and 2012. First cab off the rank is the AIDASol, built in modular fashion and will include a state of the art theatrium for world class performances.
Aida has a unique tradition whereby each of its ships is baptized by a special "grandmother" before setting sail on its maiden voyage. It has many "grandmothers" including famous supermodel Heidi Klum, who blessed the AIDAaura prior to its presence at the 2004 Olympics in Athens.
The AIDAaura along with the AIDAluna were featured in their full glory at the Hamburg Cruise Days in July of this year. This spectacular event is one of the biggest maritime events in the Northern Hemisphere enjoyed by cruise enthusiasts.
