Cruise Ship Information

Concept and Construction - AIDAluna is the third ship, out of a series of six ships, ordered by AIDA Cruises at Meyer Werft, with expected delivery of one ship each year from 2007 to 2012. She is a sister ship of AIDAdiva, AIDAbella, AIDAblu, AIDAsol, and AIDAmar. The first order was only for two ships, but the option extended to six ships.She floated out of drydock on 10 February 2009. AIDAluna started her sea trials with her passage on the River Ems on 21 February 2009, departing Papenburg.

 
The voyage culminated in Emdem the next day. On 23 February, departing Emdem to continue sea trials, she ventured to Blohm + Voss shipyard in Hamburg for final inspection at dock Elbe 17. During the inspection, an object was seen, being tangled on AIDAluna's propellers, which was supposedly caused by the ship's short trip. After a few days, AIDAluna was cleared and continued her sea trials in the North Sea. AIDAluna was delivered to its owners on 16 March 2009. She was christened on April 4, 2009 at Palma de Mallorca by the German supermodel, Franziska Knuppe.
 
AIDAluna started her maiden voyage on 22 March 2009, departing Hamburg. This 14-day voyage culminated in Palma de Mallorca, with stops at Le Havre, Santander, La Coruna, Lisbon, Cadiz, Tangier, Valencia, and Barcelona. In Summer 2009, she was deployed in Baltic Sea and in Winter, she was redeployed in Canary Islands. AIDAluna made her first call in Kiel on 22 April and in Rostock-Warnemünde in 8 May, departing from Palma de Mallorca. She made 10 roundtrip cruises in the Baltic during the 2009 Summer season. In 2011, AIDAluna was redeployed in the Caribbean and offered 14-day cruises, with additional 6 to 8-day sailings. On her way to the Caribbean, AIDAluna sailed the East Coast, calling in New York.

Fellow Passengers
This cruise line is primarily marketed towards the younger, more active German-speaking traveler. As mentioned above, their ships are operated with a very casual "club resort" theme in mind. In fact, AIDA Cruises is so casual that they allow their off-duty crew members to meet and mingle with passengers throughout each cruise. If you don't speak German you're really going to feel out of place, and quite confused, while on an AIDA ship.

Our recommendation
AIDA has the right vessel for you if you enjoy an easy going atmosphere with open dining times, no formal dress code and prefer rather young and active fellow passengers. The contemporary fleet of ships generally appeals to a younger clientele consisting of singles, couples & families.
