Review of AIDAmar

Launched in 2012, AIDAmar is the 6th Sphinx-class AIDA Cruises ship, together with her sisters AIDAblu, AIDAstella and AIDAsol.

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 in 2003 merged with Carnival Corporation (shipowner). AIDA's first World Cruise (AIDAcara) was in 2017-2018 (October-February) with 116-day roundtrip itinerary from Hamburg Germany.

AIDAmar cruise ship

The 71,304-ton, 2,194-passenger cruise ship AIDAmar took a five-year period to build. The brand new amenities onboard are the large luxurous SPA facility and onboard brewery. The ship impressed at the very start of her life with one of the most spectacular christening ceremonies. The event was held on May 12, 2012 in Hamburg, where AIDA Mar was accompanied by her sisters Blu, Sol and Luna.

Besides the ship's staff and crew, AIDA cruise passengers are also served by Peper robots - 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 face expressions.
