As a long-time sponsor of the maritime festival, the cruise
operator is also supporting the "Kruzenshtern" and the "Hanse-Tour-Sonnenschein
many years AIDA Cruises has already been supporting one of Germany's biggest
maritime festivals with a vast array of initiatives.
the third time in a row AIDA Cruises has agreed to sponsor a ship for one of
these major public attractions. Thanks to the support of the Rostock-based
cruise company, the venerable vessel "Kruzenshtern" will be a guest at the 26th
Hanse Sail from August 11–14, 2016. The "Kruzenshtern", a four-masted barque,
is the only remaining ship still in service from the famous Flying-P Liners
fleet owned by the shipping company, F. Laeisz, and it will form part of the
impressive windjammer parade that will be taking place next weekend against the
picturesque backdrop of Rostock-Warnemünde.
continued support of the "Hanse-Tour-Sonnenschein" in the 20th year of the
association's existence is a matter very close to our hearts," says Hansjörg
Kunze, Vice President Communication & Sustainability AIDA Cruises. "We want
our involvement to draw the attention of others to this project as well and
make a contribution towards both continuing to support research and making the
lives of seriously ill children and their parents easier." AIDA Cruises donated

charity cycling tour from August 10–13, 2016.
year AIDA Cruises will be bringing two of the eleven ships in its fleet to the
Hanse Sail. AIDAmar and AIDAdiva will visit Warnemünde on August 13 and August
14, 2016 respectively. Both ships will be berthed at the cruise terminal from
8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The arrival of AIDA ships at the Hanse Sail is always a
high point for ship fans. Getting their respective 7 and 10-day cruises to the
most beautiful Baltic metropolises off to a great start, AIDAmar and AIDAdiva
guests will enjoy the maritime charm of the festival and, when the ships set
sail, they will have one of the most spectacular views of Warnemünde from the
pool deck. The AIDA Cruises' season in Rostock-Warnemünde comes to an end on
October 15, 2016, with a final highlight: the cry of "cast off!" will be heard
when AIDAmar sets off on its transatlantic crossing to New York via Hamburg,
the Azores and Canada.
41 arrivals in 2016, this year AIDA Cruises is once again the most important
partner of the Hanseatic City of Rostock in the area of cruises, and one of the
key economic factors for the region as a whole.
