The AIDA entertainment program 2024: More stars than ever before!

Further new AIDA Specials with top-class casts, including Matze Knop, Mirja Boes, Motsi Mabuse and Mickie Krause, can now be booked.

AIDA Cruises, the market leader for cruises in Germany, has five unique AIDA Specials with around 40 celebrities in store for its guests for the coming year. Three new AIDA Specials can be booked from today: the COMEDY Cruise, AIDA tanzt and O'zapft is!

The Rostock-based company celebrates its premiere with the first COMEDY Cruise: comedians Bastian Bielendorfer, Matze Knop, Markus Krebs, comedy magician Marc Weide and Mirja Boes & the Honkey Donkeys bring their entertaining program to the ship's stage. And even the little ones will be entertained thanks to the Kammerpuppenspiele Bielefeld. They will delight the young audience with well-known classics in Studio X. The 7-day COMEDY Cruise will take place from June 29 to July 6, 2024 to coincide with International Joke Day (July 1). Together with some of Germany's best-known comedians, the cruise will set sail from/to Kiel for Denmark and Norway.

A much-loved classic returns: "AIDA tanzt" with the who's who of the international dance scene. Motsi Mabuse, Renata and Valentin Lusin, Alexandru and Patricija Ionel and other dance professionals will ensure a lively stay on the event cruise from June 15 to 22, 2024 with AIDAdiva from/to Warnemünde towards the Norwegian fjords: the dance classes will take place in the AIDA Bar, in the sports area and on the pool deck - turning the entire ship into a dance floor.
The "O'zapft is!" party on board AIDAprima has almost become a tradition: the Bavarian AIDA special will take place from September 14 to 21, 2024 from/to Hamburg to get in the mood for the Oktoberfest. Guests on the voyage to the most beautiful cities in Western Europe can look forward to a great time with lots of party animals. Top live acts such as Mickie Krause, the Hermes House Band, Rotzlöffl, DJ Paraiso, voXXclub and Susal, whose mix of Bavarian beats, folk music and contemporary hits will have you swaying and singing along. The Oktoberfest program at sea is rounded off with Bavarian delicacies and freshly tapped beer from the ship's own brewery.
The two AIDA specials MOIN Cruise, a tribute to the North German way of life with Otto Waalkes and others, and the FESTIVAL Cruise with absolute top acts such as Sido, Alle Farben and Gentleman, have been bookable since the beginning of December 2023.
