MS Blue Dream Melody (2002-built as AIDAvita, last refurbished by AIDA in 2020) was the second and one of the smallest and oldest ships in the AIDA Cruises' fleet - together with AIDAaura/Celestyal Discovery (2003-built/sistership). Before 2022, the shipowner was Costa Cruises (Carnival Corporation-owned company), while the ship operator was the German company AIDA Kreuzfahrten.

On June 14, 2022, was announced that AIDAvita was sold and leaves the fleet. Since January 2024, the ship is operated by Blue Dream Cruises China.

Blue Dream Melody/AIDAvita cruise ship deck plan shows a total of 633 cabins for 1266 passengers (max occupancy is 1300) served by 420 crew-staff. The boat has 12 decks (10 passenger-accessible, 5 with cabins), 3 restaurants, 5 bars and lounges (no casino), 1 swimming pool, 3 Jacuzzis (outdoor whirlpool hot tubs), 6 elevators, dining areas (26260 ft2 / 2440 m2), sundeck areas (37135 ft2 / 3450 m2), Spa & Fitness areas (12920 ft2 / 1200 m2).

Complimentary dining options (included in AIDA cruise prices) are the two buffets Markt and Calypso, and the Pool Grill. At an additional charge is the reservations-only Rossini restaurant (with waiter service). At the buffet restaurants, wine and beer are complimentary for lunch and dinner.

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.
