AIDAluna Review

Review of AIDAluna

The 2009-built AIDAluna cruise ship is the third Sphinx-class AIDA liner, with sisterships AIDAdiva and AIDAbella.

The vessel (IMO number 9334868) is currently Italy-flagged (MMSI 247255400) and registered in Genova.

History - construction and ownership

AIDA Cruises is a Rostock-headquartered subsidiary company owned by Carnival Corporation. AIDA is Europe's largest German cruise line (followed by TUI) targeting younger and more active travelers. AIDA was founded in 1960 (as "Deutsche Seereederei") and in 2000 was acquired by P&O Princess Cruises, which merged with Carnival Corporation (shipowner) in 2003. AIDA's first World Cruise (AIDAcara) was in 2017-2018 (October-February) with 116-day roundtrip itinerary from Hamburg Germany.

AIDAluna cruise ship

The 2100-passenger ship AIDAluna pioneered the fleet's poolside/outdoor theater (dimensions 8 x 4.5 m). The vessel's godmother is the German fashion model Franziska Knuppe. The christening ceremony took place at Palma de Mallorca, on April 4, 2009, during the maiden voyage.

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.

AIDAluna Wiki

Luna is AIDA's 3rd vessel, which Maiden Voyage started on March 22, 2009, from homeport Hamburg. Liner's christening ceremony was held on April 4, 2009, in Port Palma (Mallorca-Majorca Island, Spain). The ship's godmother was Franziska Knuppe (1974-born German fashion model and actress). Fun fact is that she is also the godmother of AIDA's 14th fleet member - AIDAmira (fka Costa neoRiviera/now Ambassador Ambition) that joined the fleet in 2019.

Ship's Theatrium is a 3-level entertainment complex transforming the Atrium into Theater. There is also a 4D Cinema fitted with moving chairs. A biking station provides bicycles to be used on shore excursions in ports of call. A significant amount of indoor-outdoor space is devoted to sports. The Pool Deck area also acts as an outdoor entertainment space. Dining options include 3 informal buffet restaurants, three specialty restaurants (dining at extra charge), plus informal venues for light snacks, pizzas, coffee/tea.

All documents, signage and announcements on board are in German, as the majority of AIDA cruise ship passengers are German-speaking Europeans (Germans, Austrians, Swiss). The crew is international, many of them well-speaking English.

AIDAluna refurbishments review

  • A new lounge facility (Almhutte) is a lodge-style dining venue featuring traditional dishes from the Alps and live music performances. Almhutte represents an expanded restaurant concept with a gourmet menu offering complimentary specialties like pork knuckle, cheese spaetzle noodles, light snacks, draft beers. Service and food are complimentary, all beverages cost extra.
  • AIDA Shopping World is a new retail via partnership with the 1879-founded Hamburg-based company Gebr. Heinemann SE & Co KG. AIDA Shopping World features an innovative design and 400 m2 (4300 ft2) retail space with special offers from world's most famous brands.
  • Fujifilm Wonder Photo Shop is another new venue offering an interactive experience.
  • All passenger staterooms and some public areas were renovated and modernized. All restaurants, bars and the SPA complex were refitted.

During refurbishment 2019, the cruise liner also received technical upgrades (related to shoreside power capabilities), scheduled regular maintenance works (including stabilizers and propulsion units - bow and stern thrusters), Navigation Bridge refurbishment, diesel-electrical plant upgrades, exhaust system and ballast-tanks cleaning, hull coating works.

During the drydock in 2014 (April 26 - May 5, at Blohm+Voss) were conducted scheduled regular maintenance works (stabilizers, steering, body, machinery), installed new exhaust system (scrubber), renovation works (flooring, cabins, public areas, carpeting, new deck floorings). A face recognition system was installed at AIDA Photo Shop (reducing printing chemicals and paper consumption by 50%).
