Have you ever wondered what life on board a cruise ship is like but you aren’t sure if you have the right sea legs? Now is your chance to spend a day sampling an AIDA vacation in the Canaries and in Germany and experience what life on board a German cruise liner is like.
In the coming months, those interested in a cruise vacation will be able to get a taste of what it’s like aboard a total of 12 AIDA ships during a ship tour in the Canary Islands. A special highlight is the newest ship in the fleet, AIDAnova. AIDAnova and AIDAstella will be sailing around the Canary Islands until April 2020, showing off their very best sides to guests on the ship tours.
In addition, from February to October 2020 a large number of ship tours will be on offer at German ports, while in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, visitors will be able to book a tour all year round.
Visitors aboard the ships will be offered a richly varied package of experiences. On special Family Days, explorers of all ages will be able to see the diverse areas of the ship and enjoy thrilling entertainment in the Theatrium. Gourmets will love the Culinary World Tourand can pamper their palates with an à la carte meal and various tastings. At the Spa Taster Day spa lovers will enjoy the heavenly oases on board.
Apart from all these adventures, the four-hour guided tour gives visitors a comprehensive insight into everyday life aboard. Visitors get to see the public areas of the ship including the wellness and fitness area, the different restaurants and the Theatrium, as well as the different types of staterooms onboard. The visit to the ship is rounded off with lunch at one of the onboard restaurants.
On February 29, 2020 in Hamburg, AIDAaura will be the first of seven ships to offer a guided tour in one of three German ports. Other ships that can be booked in Hamburg are AIDAcara, AIDAvita, AIDAluna, AIDAsol, AIDAmar and AIDAperla. From March, visitors can tour four different ships in Kiel (AIDAcara, AIDAluna, AIDAbella and AIDAprima) while from May, three members of the fleet with the kissing lips will be on show in Rostock/Warnemünde (AIDAaura, AIDAdiva and AIDAmar).
A regular ship tour in the Spanish ports costs 29 euros per person. The price in German ports is 49 euros. Children may visit free of charge depending on the experience package.
