Lena Gercke will christen AIDAperla, the twelfth member of the AIDA fleet, in Palma de Mallorca on June 30, 2017. In Germany the likable beauty is among the most famous and successful models and presenters. The skyline of the old city of Palma will form the backdrop when the night sky above AIDAperla is transformed into a sparkling sea of color during a spectacular music and lighting event.
"With her natural charm and vitality, Lena Gercke is the ideal godmother of AIDAperla. I’m delighted that she will christen our new vessel. Lena Gercke is the perfect ambassador for the modern and unconventional attitude to life we stand for with our AIDA brand," said Felix Eichhorn, President of AIDA Cruises.
"I love traveling and I’m on the road a lot - professionally as well as privately. All the more I am looking forward to becoming the godmother of a beautiful ship such as AIDAperla. I think it’s great to discover many countries in a short time and to have a wonderful hotel always with you," commented the future godmother Lena Gercke.
The christening cruise from June 24 to July 1, 2017 will take guests from Palma de Mallorca to three cities in the Mediterranean: Rome (Civitavecchia), Florence (Livorno) and Barcelona. Those who cannot join the celebrations in Palma de Mallorca or on board AIDAperla should still note the date of June 30, 2017 in their calendar, though, as the christening will be transmitted live on the internet and various social media channels.
Cruise fans will have the opportunity to get to know the youngest member of the fleet on several introductory trips even before the official start of the christening cruise. From July 1, 2017, the 300 meter long and 37.6 meter wide cruise ship will travel the Western Mediterranean. As of March 2018 AIDAperla will be based in Hamburg.
The many highlights on board include the Beach Club under a weatherproof and UV-permeable foil dome and the Four Elements with water slides and climbing garden. The award-winning Body & Soul Organic Spa delights guests with its various saunas, multiple indoor and outdoor pools, a tepidarium and a fireplace room for complete relaxation.

In addition to the Kids and Teens Club, there is also a Mini Club on board to look after small children from the age of 6 months. Furthermore the food & beverage facilities offered on board leave nothing to be desired: 12 restaurants, 3 snack bars and 14 bars invite guests to embark on a culinary world tour.
