AIDAperla, the twelfth member of the AIDA fleet, will be christened on Friday, June 30, 2017, in Palma de Mallorca (Spain). The Christening Cruise will last from June 24 until July 1, 2017, leading from Palma de Mallorca to three Mediterranean metropolises: Rome (Civitavecchia), Florence (Livorno) and Barcelona. Tickets are available now. This unique voyage is available for booking from today (February 15, 2017) on, 10.00 am.
Felix Eichhorn, President of AIDA Cruises, comments on the christening of the newest member of the fleet: "Those who know AIDA also know about our unique christening ceremonies. The skyline of Palma's old town will be the breathtaking backdrop for a spectacular show of music and light, transforming the night skies above AIDAperla into a glistening flood of color on the evening of her christening."
Those unable to join the event in Palma de Mallorca or on board AIDAperla are nevertheless encouraged to save the date of June 30, 2017: the christening ceremony will be streamed live on the internet and various social media channels. The company will soon announce more details about the christening.
From July 1, 2017, the cruise ship – which is 300 meters long and 37.6 meters wide – will be sailing the western Mediterranean. The capital of the Germans' favorite island, Palma de Mallorca, and Barcelona are the ports of departure and arrival for the seven-day cruises to e.g. Rome (Civitavecchia), Corsica and Florence (Livorno).
AIDAperla will be visiting Germany for the first time in March 2018. The Hanseatic City of Hamburg will be the home port of multiple 7-night round trips to the most beautiful metropolises in Western Europe, such as London (Southampton), Paris (Le Havre), Brussels (Zeebrugge) and Rotterdam.
