German cruise line AIDA Cruises, part of Carnival Corporation, has revealed plans to expand its fleet with one more ship in 2019. 

To be named AIDAmira, the ship will be deployed in the company’s Selection program, sailing to South Africa.

As informed, the vessel in question is Costa neoRiviera and will be transferred from Costa Cruises’ fleet.

“The feedback we have received from our guests and the high demand for our AIDA Selection program continually inspires us to keep expanding our variety of routes (…) Therefore, we are very pleased to have found with the Costa neoRiviera the perfect ship within the Costa Group for our explorer fleet at such short notice. Many of our guests have been hoping for AIDA cruises to South Africa for a long time. I am pleased that we are now able to fulfill this wish,” Felix Eichhorn, President AIDA Cruises, commented.

Currently, AIDA Selection program includes three ships – AIDAaura, AIDAcara and AIDAvita.

Following remodeling and refurbishment works, AIDAmira is scheduled to depart on its maiden voyage on December 4, 2019, from Palma, Majorca.

AIDA Cruises will welcome a new fleet member also in November 2018, when AIDAnova is expected to be delivered to the cruise line. Apart from AIDAnova, two more newbuilds will join AIDA Cruises in 2021 and 2023, bringing the company’s fleet to sixteen ships.
