Carnival Corporation’s AIDA Cruises brand will kick off its winter program from Hamburg on Saturday, Oct. 30 with the AIDAprima as part of a 26-cruise winter season extending through April.
The week-long voyages will call in popular ports such as Le Havre and Rouen, according to a press release, as well as Zeebrugge and Rotterdam, where the ship will interport and all guests to board.
Guests can expect a diverse vacation program onboard, from culinary highlights to enthralling entertainment and wellness packages, AIDA said, in a statement, noting the enclosed Beach Club aboard.
A later this year, the ship will be transformed into a veritable Winter Wonderland: a Christmas market with festively decorated stalls, hearty mulled wine and culinary treats, such as candied apples, round off the winter experience on the open-air sports deck. Guests and crew will spend Christmas Eve in Rotterdam, and on New Year’s Eve in Hamburg.
A new highlight on the AIDAprima is the world’s first Lego Store onboard a cruise ship.
