AIDA fireworks at Hamburg Port Anniversary

Rostock, 10. May 2019

For the 830th HAMBURG PORT ANNIVERSARY main sponsor AIDA Cruises presented the great birthday fireworks last night. Cruise ship AIDAperla, which led the large ship parade along the Landungsbrücken on the river Elbe, was the centre point of the light and fireworks production.

The brilliant light spectacle illuminated the night sky over the river Elbe and transformed the scenery into a sparkling sea of colours. Afterwards AIDAperla left the Hanseatic city for the North Sea and set course for Southampton. On its seven-day voyage from Hamburg, the ship also stops in Le Havre, Zeebrugge and Rotterdam.

For three days, more than one million visitors of the Port Anniversary were able to experience a varied maritime program along the harbor mile and on the water. At the AIDA vacation world in the HafenCity and the Beach Club Hamburg del mar, guests had the opportunity to visit an AIDAnova show cabin. In addition to AIDAperla, guests were able to see AIDAvita and AIDAluna, who already left on Friday evening (May 10, 2019) as part of a ship parade along the Elbphilharmonie. To conclude this year's Port Anniversary, AIDAsol called at Hamburg Altona on Sunday (May 12, 2019).

All AIDA holiday offers can be booked at the travel agency, at the AIDA Customer Centre (+49 (0)381/202 707 07) or at
