AIDAstella Review

Review of AIDAstella

The 2013-built AIDAstella cruise ship is the 7th and last Sphinx-class AIDA liner, with sisterships AIDAblu, AIDAsol and AIDAmar.

The vessel (IMO number 9601132) is currently Italy-flagged (MMSI 247322800) 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.

AIDAstella cruise ship

The 2200-passenger ship AIDAstella was not operational until the 17th of March 2013. She was christened in Warnemunde port by 10 godmothers. AIDAstella sailed on her maiden cruise from Hamburg to Las Palmas, visiting Dover, Le Havre, Santander, La Coruna, Cadiz, Casablanca, Santa Cruz de Tenerife) to Las Palmas. The remarkable ceremony of the actual christening took place in the ship's Theatrium. The selection of 10 godmothers was a "thank you" for the people who helped in the shipbuilding process. Eight of them were female crew members, representing different countries and departments of the AIDA company. One godmother represented Jos L Meyer (the shipbuilder), and one - Partner Ship Design (the ship designers).

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.

AIDAstella Wiki

AIDAstella is the 7th liner in the Sphinx-class/series of AIDA Kreutzfahrten, and fleet's 10th vessel. It was christened on March 16, 2013, in Warnemunde Germany. AIDA's Stella ship technology features ballast tanks designed to hold all micro-organisms when the tanks are emptied in call ports worldwide. This was the first ever ship equipped with such a system.

On Nov 23, 2015, AIDAStella became the first Carnival Corporation vessel that docked at the newly constructed Abu Dhabi Cruise Terminal (Mina Zayed). This UAE port is an important homeport/turnaround port in Red Sea, with a total of 60 calls (2016 schedule) of which 40x by AIDA (23 calls by AidaStella).
