In 2013, 763,700 guests from Germany chose to travel with AIDA Cruises – 20 percent more than in the year before. This means that the cruise company has grown twice as fast as the market as a whole. A new study by the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) and the German Travel Association DRV shows that the German market for ocean cruises grew by 9.2 percent in 2013 to 1.69 million passengers.

The cruise company said it is also set for further growth in the coming years. The AIDA fleet will increase in size from its current 10 vessels to 12 by 2016. The first ship of the new AIDA Generation, AIDAprima, will be inaugurated and put into service in 2015. AIDAprima’s maiden voyage will take place from March 22-June 16, 2015, taking it on a unique 86-day journey from Yokohama, Japan to Hamburg. AIDA guests will have a chance to visit 39 ports in 22 countries on three continents. From June 20, 2015, the port of Hamburg will be the start and end point for AIDAprima’s seven-day round trips to the metropolises of Western Europe.
