Rostock, 15. February 2016

What woman doesn’t dream of shopping as much as she wants in Europe’s most famous retail meccas? On the new AIDA shopping cruises, celebrities accompany guests to the most fabulous boutiques, offer personal styling tips, and reveal the hottest fashion trends.

These tours will launch with the well-known radio presenter, Verena Kerth. In the TV show “Promi Shopping Queen” Munich-born Kerth has already twice demonstrated her unerring feel for the latest fashion trends and perfect styling. Now she will be accompanying fashion fans on shopping trips around Western Europe on board AIDAmar from March 5–12, 2016, and AIDAprima (May 28 to June 4, 2016). The itinerary will include the world-famous Galerie Lafayette in Paris, and Amsterdam’s Magna Plaza department store. From Southampton, shoppers will visit Bicester Village, one of England’s leading outlet shopping centers, with over 130 boutiques – including the best-known Italian and French designers. Bargain hunters will truly come into their own on the tour from Zeebrugge to Roubaix, at the McArthur Glen designer & premium outlet.

Each of the shopping trips with Verena Kerth can be conveniently booked from the comfort of one’s own home on, with prices starting from just 39.95 euros per person (Amsterdam), inclusive of a welcome glass of sparkling wine. The tour price includes other exciting offers on board of AIDAmar and AIDAprima. The first evening of the cruise begins with a welcome event at the wellness oasis as the ship sets sail. Hairstyling and make-up workshops, exclusive VIP shopping at the AIDA Shops with sparkling wine reception, and personal assistance from the AIDA Shopmanager round off the package.
