AIDA Cruises is celebrating its anniversary: Twenty years ago today, on June 7, 1996, the
first ship in the AIDA fleet was christened by former first lady Christiane Herzog in
Rostock/Germany and put into service. From the very beginning, AIDA has stood for
innovation and product diversity like no other company in the industry. This will
continue in its 20th year. Under the name “AIDA Selection,” AIDA is presenting new,
exceptional vacation experiences on cruises with AIDAcara, AIDAvita, and AIDAaura.
AIDA Selection cruises take unusual routes to new regions or exclusive ports. Extended
stays at port give guests the opportunity to get to know the region at their leisure. On
board, they enjoy a very personal atmosphere and the individual charm of the small
AIDA ship class. These cruises are topped off by an on-board program that reflects the
typical culture of the region and culinary offerings with regional specialties and cooking
courses based on the destination.
The first AIDA Selection cruises will be taking place on AIDAcara starting on February
11, 2017, under the title “Winter in the High North.” The voyages begin in Hamburg
and take guests to the land of the Northern Lights and breathtaking winter landscapes
in the fjords.
Starting in the summer of 2017, AIDA will be offering all cruises with AIDAcara,
AIDAvita, and AIDAaura as AIDA Selection cruises. During the premiere season of AIDA
Selection cruises, there will be some very special extras: AIDAcara will make a
spectacular voyage to Iceland and Greenland. The ship will stop in Ilulissat and Nuuk on
the west coast of Greenland, and in Qaqortoq on the southern coast. Passing through
Prince Christian Sound, it will then visit the capital Reykjavik in Iceland, along with
Akureyri and Seydisfjördur. Another highlight in the AIDA Selection program are
AIDAvita voyages to Norway, all the way up to the North Cape, and to the Lofoten in
the summer of 2017.
And AIDA guests will have a say in decisions on future routes and ports for AIDA
Selection. Detailed information and further AIDA Selection cruises will be presented
soon in the AIDA Selection brochure and in the AIDA catalog starting in the fall of 2016.
Today, over 23,000 guests on board the eleven AIDA ships are celebrating the
company’s anniversary. Wonderful highlights await guests especially on the anniversary
voyage of AIDAcara, the first AIDA ship. In addition to a big anniversary gala, lots of
celebrities are joining the party on board, including AIDAluna godmother Franziska
Knuppe, singer and entertainer Terrél Woodbury, and “AIDA Live Beats” club stars DJ
Jamie Loca, Guru da Beat, and Jay Smith.
