Exclusive AIDA pur cruise with
Captain Hoppert and the stars of Let's Dance
Days at sea are what
cruises are all about. They stand for a grand passage, the breadth of the
ocean, for mentally unwinding, and for undiluted deceleration. That is why AIDA
Cruises is once again launching one of its popular AIDA pur cruises. AIDAbella
will set sail from Venice on November 15, 2017, arriving in Dubai on November
28, 2017. In between guests will enjoy 10 days at sea with highlights such as
crossing the Suez Canal and overnight stays in Venice and Dubai.
While the cruise
ship glides smoothly through the water, guests can enjoy a superb onboard
program. During the 1st Captain's Cruise, guests will be shown the most
fascinating sides of navigation by Captain Friedhold Hoppert in person –
because it is only for "AIDA pur" that he accompanies the cruise's responsible
Captain, Hennig Ueberall, giving the guests his undivided attention. Captain
Hoppert, who holds a doctorate in engineering, has held a captain's license for
over 40 years and has been with AIDA right from the start. Guests will have the
opportunity to acquaint themselves personally with Captain Hoppert at numerous
events relating to sea travel and navigation, while observing the stars
together, or at dinner in the restaurants.
The starry firmament
is rarely more beautiful than when seen from the boundless ocean. Nature is
also overwhelming beneath the water's surface – as will be shown by astronomy
expert Dr. Hartmut Renken and marine biologist Gabi Eidam. During astronomical
observations and photo lectures they will captivate their listeners with
scientific facts, exciting stories and extraordinary phenomena.
For dancing, this
cruise exclusively presents the "Let's Dance" stars, Kathrin Menzinger and
Vadim Garbuzov, offering fantastic show dances and lively workshops from the
three-time world champions in Latin show dance. Guests will be able to display
their newly-acquired skills straight away at the glamorous gala evening.
When it comes to
dancing, the incomparable Tatiana Peréz is of course a must as well. With a
skillful swing of her hips, she teaches guests her graceful oriental dance in a
flash. And this powerfully versatile performer also brings along salsa, dance
fitness and yoga.
AIDA top chef Franz
Schned produces culinary highlights, throwing in an extra pound of geniality.
Known from the ZDF show "Küchenschlacht," he will be transporting guests to the
world of TV cookery. Award-winning sommelier Gunnar Tietz will be ensuring that
the right wines are served. He will guide guests through the world of wines,
bouquets and aromas and, as the flavor ambassador with Otto Gourmet, will be
familiarizing guests with the subject of meat at the Perfect Meat Academy's
There is even more
great entertainment in store with activities such as photo workshops, exquisite
wellness treatments, and more than 30 fitness courses, and guests will be
enthralled by shows such as "Dancing Queen" or the exclusive shows "Dreams" and
"Bellagio." At "The Voice of the Ocean" guests with a talent for singing will
even be the stars of the evening themselves.
This exclusive AIDA
pur cruise can be booked from 999 euros per person inclusive of flight. More
