AIDAperla Christened in Palma de Mallorca

German cruise line AIDA Cruises has christened the newest ship in its fleet, AIDAperla.

The christening ceremony, accompanied by a light show and a firework display, took place in Palma de Mallorca in the evening hours of June 30.

The 300-meter-long and 37.6-meter-wide cruise ship will be sailing the Western Mediterranean from July 1, 2017. Palma de Mallorca and Barcelona are the start and destination ports for the seven-day cruises that make stops in Rome (Civitavecchia), Corsica and Florence (Livorno).

The 125,000 gross ton AIDAperla will make its first appearance in Germany in March 2018. Hamburg will be the start and end port for seven-day roundtrips to destinations in Western Europe including Southampton, Le Havre, Zeebrugge or Rotterdam.

By deploying the twelfth member of its fleet in Palma de Mallorca all year round, AIDA Cruises said it is also further expanding its commitment to the Balearic Islands as well as in the low season.

Five AIDA ships will be calling Palma de Mallorca a total of 88 times in 2017, according to the company. Apart from AIDAperla, which will call 34 times, Palma de Mallorca is also a travel destination and transfer port for guests aboard AIDAstella, AIDAblu, AIDAbella and AIDAaura.
