As Costa Cruises is continuing to renew its fleet – the company is adding four new ships to the fleet between now and 2021 – the company is tranferring Costa neoRiviera to its German subsidiary AIDA Cruises. After being remodelled and refurbished, the ship will be named AIDAmira.
Following the growing success of the AIDA Selection program, AIDAmira will join AIDAaura, AIDAcara and AIDAvita in offering a variety of routes that call at new dream destinations in the most beautiful regions in the world.
Before going into service, the ship will be remodeled and refurbished. There will be two large pools and two whirlpools on the spacious sun deck of the 216-meter-long ship. From 624 staterooms, 96 will be suites, 80 of them with balconies. Guests will be able to enjoy a delicious variety in six bars and six restaurants.
As AIDAmira departs Palma de Mallorca on its maiden voyage on December 4, 2019, her route will be totally new for the AIDA program.
Guests will have a first-time opportunity to experience the natural wonders in southern Africa onboard AIDAmira. The departure and destination port on the 14-day route “South Africa & Namibia” will be Cape Town, South Africa. Further ports will include Durban, East London and Lüderitz on the edge of the Namibian desert. The multi-day stops in Cape Town on the cruises will be an absolute highlight and give guests plenty of time to explore attractions such as Table Mountain and Lion’s Head. AIDAmira will also stay overnight at Walvis Bay. In the large lagoon between the desert and the sea, guests can observe exotic species.
