The AIDAdiva is expected to arrive at Hamburg Cruise Center (Großer Grasbrook) on April 18. As it is the case for each first call
of a cruise ship she will be welcomed by a fireboat
in the Elbe river and accompanied to her berth. Then, at 3 pm the AIDAdays will open officially.
The christening ceremony as the highlight of the AIDAdays will be on April 20. At 9 pm the ship will leave the berth at Hamburg Cruise Center, surrounded by a spectacular lightshow, produced by the star light architect Gert Hof. The ship will then be at the level of the Hamburg Fischmarkt. On April 22 the AIDAdiva will leave the Hamburg Cruise Center only for few days, heading for the Port of Kiel. The ship is expected to be back already on April 29 to begin its maiden voyage on April 30.
