ms AIDAaura (built 2003, last refurbished in 2013) is the “newest among the oldest” and smallest AIDA cruise ships – together with AIDAvita (sistership), AIDAcara (company’s first vessel) and AIDAmira (ex Costa neoRiviera). The shipowner is Costa Cruises (Carnival Corporation-owned company), and ship's operator is the German company AIDA Cruises.
AIDAaura cruise ship deck plan has a total of 633 cabins for 1266 passengers (max occupancy is 1300 guests) served by 420 crew/staff. The ship has 10 passenger accessible decks (out of 12), with 3 restaurants, 5 bars and lounges (no casino), 1 swimming pool, 3 jacuzzies, 6 elevators, dining areas (26260 ft2 / 2440 m2), sundeck areas (37135 ft2 / 3450 m2), Spa & Fitness areas (12920 ft2 / 1200 m2).

Besides the ship's staff and crew, AIDA cruise passengers are also served by Peper robots - the latest cyborg technology implemented fleetwide in 2016. These humanoid robots greet and guide passengers upon embarkation. They also assist them throughout the cruise by providing information and tips on onboard dining, entertainment, enrichment program (workshops, pre-scheduled events), casino and shopping promotions, shore excursions and tours. Pepper robots are mobile and communicate in 3 languages (English, German, Italian). They can also interpret human emotions by analyzing voice tones and facial expressions.
