Port Portland (UK) welcomed AIDAura on Thursday, July 18. As well as the usual staff, guests' every need is attended to by company's team of robots. AIDA rolled out the latest humanoid cyborg technology 'Pepper robots' back in 2016. These robots are mobile and communicate in 3 languages (English, German, Italian) and can interpret human emotions via analyzing facial expressions and voice tones.

Pepper robots guide travelers upon embarkation and assist them throughout the voyage by providing tips and information on onboard dining, entertainment, casino, enrichment programs, shopping promotions, and shore excursions.
