AIDA Celebrates Season Start in the North: Tim Bendzko Live on AIDAmar

AIDA Cruises is celebrating the start of the Baltic Sea season not only with a double call in Warnemünde on April 16, 2023, but also with another musical star guest: German pop singer Tim Bendzko is giving a concert exclusively for the cruise's guests on the short voyage from AIDAmar to Sweden.

Tim Bendzko achieved his breakthrough with his song "Nur noch kurz die Welt retten". Since then, the Berlin-based singer has had a decisive influence on German-language pop music, and his poetic music has earned him numerous chart successes, gold and platinum records, and awards. Touching songs that speak from the soul are Tim Bendzko's trademark. This is also the case on his new album "April", which he will present on AIDAmar on April 18, 2023.

In addition to fantastic entertainment, guests can look forward to culinary delights, because the kitchen will be rocked on this voyage by gourmet patron and full-blooded chef Stefan Marquard.

In the Swedish capital Stockholm, the Royal Castle in the Old Town or the Vasa Museum, where fascinating relics from the Swedish past can be admired, are well worth a visit. All those who want to do some shopping will find a great selection of jewelry, fashion and design in the trendy district of Södermalm. The voyage continues to Visby on Gotland. On the largest Baltic Sea island, visitors explore the port city with its medieval buildings, which are a World Heritage Site. For all Pippi Longstocking fans, a visit to the Kneippbyn amusement park, with what is probably Sweden's most famous house, the original Villa Kunterbunt, is a must. Another unforgettable highlight is the cruise through the archipelago off the Swedish coast.

For the season opening in Warnemünde on April 16, 2023, AIDAsol will also be there. When the sister ships set sail together in the evening, goosebump moments and great photo opportunities are guaranteed. On AIDAsol's voyage, pop singer Beatrice Egli will provide the best party atmosphere before the ship sets course for the former cultural capital Aarhus, Gothenburg and Kristiansand. For almost 10 years, Beatrice Egli has been one of the most successful artists of the German pop schlager. With her electrifying power mix of modern sounds, contemporary lyrics and Swiss charm, she will thrill the guests of AIDAsol. Delicious desserts and spectacular cake creations will be provided by Andrea Schirmaier- Huber; pastry world champion and AIDA gourmet patron.

The voyages of AIDAmar and AIDAsol which mark the start of the season in the North are part of the AIDA Specials program, which offer guests the opportunity to experience very special event voyages. From the Feelgood Cruise, which focuses entirely on physical and mental well-being, to the Wiesn Warm-up with great live acts. During their voyage, guests enjoy not only the great variety of experiences on board, but also a program in many areas on board that is perfectly matched to the theme of the voyage.

All AIDA specials can be booked at travel agencies, at the AIDA Customer Center at +49 (0) 381 / 20 27 07 07 or at
