The 13-year-old has appeared in hit movies such as Rabbit Without Ears (Keinohrhasen), Rabbit Without Ears 2 (Zweiohrküken), Kokowääh and Head Full of Honey (Honig im Kopf).

'Emma is perfect for the role of AIDAprima godmother. She is an unparalleled embodiment of the young, fresh, unconventional attitude towards life that the AIDA brand stands for. With her naturalness and zest for life, she is a delight to many people in Germany, regardless of their age,' says Felix Eichhorn president, AIDA Cruises.

'I am so happy to have the chance to be godmother of this super cool ship. I think that no matter your age, everybody should be able to do what they think is most fun especially on vacation - without stress and obligations. And that is exactly what I can do on AIDAprima,' says Schweiger.

Under the motto "Experience the christening of the year!", AIDA Cruises is presenting its new flagship AIDAprima and the diversity of the vacation options with numerous activities on shore and on the water as the main sponsor of the 827th Hamburg Port Anniversary taking place from May  5-8, 2016.
