To mark the 829th Birthday of Port of Hamburg, AIDA Cruises, which is the main sponsor, staged a huge birthday fireworks display Saturday night, May 12. The AIDAperla cruise ship was the centerpiece of the spectacle of light.

Right on time for the start of the fireworks at 9:45 p.m., AIDAperla got into position in front of Harbor Piers. The 15-minute spectacle transformed the night sky above Elbe River into a sea of color. Shortly afterwards the ship sailed out of the port to the North Sea, heading for Le Havre.

A total of 1.3 million visitors enjoyed the 4-day maritime program staged at the port and on the water. AIDAvita, AIDAperla and AIDAsol were presented on May 11, 12 and 13 respectively.
