VIDEO: The Attack of the Drones

In this two-minute video, AIDA Cruises’ new flagship AIDAprima becomes a theater for scenes that we don’t see very often – two drones in a rapid race onboard the cruise ship.

Moving at a speed of up to 120 km/h, the drones are presenting the ship from a unique, perhaps extreme perspective.

The drones can be seen flying over the ship’s decks and the swimming pool, through the water slide, in the restaurants and the organic spa.

The video was made in April this year when AIDAprima was on its way to Hamburg, where it was subsequently christened in May.

The cruise ship was delivered from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) in Nagasaki on March 14. It can accommodate 3,300 guests and over 900 crew members.

AIDAprima, the 11th cruise ship in the AIDA Cruises’ fleet, features a length of 300 meters and a width of over 37 meters.
