AIDAmira Godmother Announced

By ,   September 20, 2019 ,   Cruise Industry

On November 30, 2019, AIDA Cruises 14th fleet member will be officially named by the 1974-born German fashion model and actress Franziska Knuppe. The liner AIDAmira (ex Costa neoRiviera) will be christened in Port Palma (Mallorca Island, Balearic Spain).

Fun fact is that the Rostock-born celebrity in 2009 served as the godmother of the fleetmate AIDAluna. Mira ship's Captain (Master) will be Manuel Pannzek - Captain on AIDA Selection ships since 2017.

The christening of AIDAmira (4th AIDA Selection vessel) will be a charity event with all proceeds to be donated to "AIDA Cruise & Help" - a partnership with Reiner Meutsch Foundation FLY & HELP (since 2018) for collecting donations in order to build schools in newly industrializing and developing countries.
