AIDA moves ships from Northern Europe to the Mediterranean

AIDA Cruises will have 35% of its capacity in the Mediterranean in 2015. This is a major step for the leading German line as Northern Europe has dominated the deployment data of the fleet for the last few years.

While Mediterranean capacity is now growning, AIDA has slowly cut nearly 18% of Northern European sailings from 2014 to 2015. The line has also added offerings in the Caribbean, where it expects over 70,000 cruisers this year, as opposed to 50,000 passengers in 2014.

AIDA is also making moves in Asia, and will double its Asian capacity this year, growing by nearly 100% to carry over 20,000 vacationers in the region.
