April 26, 2018, AIDAdiva will launch this year's AIDA season on the banks of
the Warnow. Two AIDA ships are due to dock here a total of 43 times.
With AIDAdiva's arrival on
Thursday, April 26, 2018, AIDA Cruises will open its 2018 cruise season in Rostock.
AIDAdiva spent the winter season in the Caribbean and will reach her home base
for the coming summer in the early morning after crossing the Atlantic via the
Canaries. Her departure tomorrow from Warnemünde will be broadcast live from
5.45 p.m. on AIDA's Facebook page.
To start off, AIDAdiva will be offering three 4-day
taster cruises to Visby and Stockholm before she begins her regular 10-day
cruises to the gems of the Baltic. The highlight of the cruise will be a
two-day stay in St. Petersburg. Guests will have the opportunity to either
attend an evening concert by the Hermitage Orchestra being staged exclusively
for AIDA or, if they wish, to explore the Russian capital. Moscow's countless
sights include the Kremlin, the Old Town, the Arbat shopping boulevard, St.
Basil's Cathedral, the Bolshoi Theater and the Cathedral of Christ the Savior,
to name but a few.
The AIDA highlights in Warnemünde this year include
the arrivals between August 9–12, 2018, for the Hanse Sail – the world's
biggest gathering of sailing and traditional ships – and the first Rostock
Cruise Festival from September 14–16, 2018. AIDA will be presenting itself both
on water and on land for the Rostock Cruise Festival. "We are delighted that as
a premium partner of the first Rostock Cruise Festival, we will be providing
further important growth momentum to the cruise location of Rostock. Major
maritime events such as this one help to win over new target groups across
generations for this unique type of vacation," says Hansjörg Kunze, Vice President Communication
& Sustainability. With more than 40 calls, AIDA Cruises will once again be
the Hanseatic City of Rostock's biggest cruise partner in 2018, and an
important economic factor for the region as a whole.
Apart from AIDAdiva, AIDAmar will also be
bringing many vacationers to Warnemünde. She will visit for the first time this
year Warnemünde on Saturday, May 5, 2018, spending the summer sailing one-week
cruises in the Baltic. Her seven-day round trips in the Baltic will be taking
in destinations such as Tallinn, St. Petersburg, Helsinki and Stockholm.
