Last week we made a cruise with AIDA again. This time on one of their smaller ships. The trip went from Palma de Mallorca to Hamburg with 5 days at sea. It was a repositioning cruise.
Despite that the ship was smaller we enjoyed it the same as the larger ships of AIDA. The whole concept is the same but accommodated for fewer guests. The sauna area was actually a little bit to small considering this to be one of the USP's of AIDA. The GYM and the staff were great.
Since this is not our first cruise with them AIDA succeed to live up to the expectations. The moment we embarked the ship we felt immediately at home which is their main slogan "Lacheln wie zu Hause". This time we took a inside cabin which was of sufficient size. The cabin was comfortable as well as the beds.
Dinning in buffet restaurants are good as to be expected and if you want more, you can also go for the a la carte restaurant Rossini. This being a repositioning cruise, AIDA had a chef assigned to the restaurant who was the winner of the German version of "Master Chefs". The menu served was great and surprisingly sophisticated.
The shows abroad are mainly in German though the singers perform in English. It is known that AIDA mainly focusses of native German speaking guests but that doen't have to be a problem at all.
And the the wellness. As always that is super at AIDA though the sauna area on smaller ships is to small.
This a biking your using mountain bikes. It took us through the New Forrest domains where we enjoyed nature and the small villages on the domainView All undefined undefined Reviews
