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.
