AIDAprima begins winter Hamburg season

AIDAprima will sail from Hamburg until April
AIDAprima on Saturday will begin a winter season from Hamburg, sailing from there for the first time since 2017.

The AIDA Cruises ship will offer 26 winter and spring cruises until April.

Weeklong voyages stop at Le Havre, Zeebrugge and Rotterdam (overnight). On an eight-day Christmas sailing, Southampton and Cherbourg are added. Christmas Eve will be spent at Rotterdam, and New Year's Eve at Hamburg.

Beach club, LEGO Store, Christmas market

Inside AIDAprima's glass-dome-enclosed AIDA Beach Club, passengers can unwind under palm trees by the pool. A new highlight on board is the first LEGO Store on a cruise ship.

Starting in December, there will be Theatrium performances by the AIDA Show Ensemble with its own singers and dancers.

Beginning with the Advent season, the ship's open-air sports deck will be transformed into a Christmas market with festively decorated stalls, mulled wine and treats like candied apples.
