AIDA CRUISES: AIDAsol debuts

Germany’s Meyer Werft delivered its latest newbuilding, the 253.33m by 32.2m AIDAsol, to compatriot owner AIDA cruises as the fifth in a total of six ships it is building for the Carnival-owned company. Like her sisterships, AIDAdiva, AIDAbella, AIDAluna and AIDAblu, AIDAsol is a Sphinx class ship of 71,304gt with accommodation for 2,174 passengers.

However, like AIDAblu, a half-deck of extra space has been added to the vessel to accommodate a large spa area. The last of the Sphinx class series is scheduled to be handed over to AIDA Cruises by Meyer Werft next year.
