AIDA Cruises presents worldwide vacation spots in Berlin

Rostock, 30. August 2016

In its 20th year since the founding of the company, AIDA Cruises continues to be one of the most important sponsors of the traditional annual celebration of the Hamburg State Representation in Berlin. Around 3,000 guests from the federal government, Hamburg government, and business attended the event on August 30, 2016. Dr. Monika Griefahn, Chief Sustainability Officer for AIDA Cruises, and Hansjörg Kunze, Vice President Communication & Sustainability AIDA Cruises, joined Olaf Scholz, First Mayor of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, in welcoming numerous guests from government and business on this evening.

There was a distinct vacation atmosphere in the around 100 sqm AIDA Lounge, designed again with the kind support of DAUERFLORA GmbH from Hamburg. Using 3D glasses and a digital ship model, visitors could take a virtual tour of the eleven ships in AIDA’s fleet and gather information on the most beautiful voyages to more than 200 destinations all over the world.

The cruise metropolis Hamburg and AIDA Cruises share a long-standing partnership. With 78 stops, 40 by AIDAprima alone, the number of AIDA vessel calls in 2016 will set a new record. AIDA Cruises’ new flagship AIDAprima was christened by Emma Schweiger on May 7, 2016, in Hamburg. The Hanseatic City is the departure and destination port for seven-day round-trip cruises to the most beautiful cities in Western Europe, including London, Paris, Brussels, and Amsterdam.
Five more members of the fleet with the famous smiling lips – AIDAvita, AIDAmar, AIDAaura, and AIDAsol – will also be visiting the Hanseatic City several times this year.
