About AIDA Cruises
Since 1996 the fleet of AIDA Cruises has discovered the world. In Germany the cruise line is very successful with a relaxed and informal atmosphere. There are no seating times and your formal clothes can be kept at home. AIDA Cruises proves itself with diverse buffets, a great sports area and a varied entertainment programme. The age structure on board is mixed and depends on the destination as well. Especially young couples and families get to know other guests quickly. AIDA Cruises is very popular with cruise newcomers. But even guests who spent their holidays onboard an AIDA ship before, return enthusiastically. The main onboard language is German.
The AIDAmar was built in the Meyer Shipyard in Germany and its inaugural cruise was in 2012. Like the sister ships AIDAblu, AIDAsol and AIDAstella it is very suitable for families, couples and solo travellers. The middle sized ship has a lot of space for its guests and various activities relating to sports, wellness, food and entertainment. The Theatrium with walls out of glass is a recognition characteristic of this ship class. The nick name of the Theatrium is "the ship's living room" due to the comfortable seats and bars around.

Cruise in one sentence
- Very cozy, comfortable
- Good scenery in high-level with balcony, quiet and clean room environment
- Adequate space and well designed
- Because it was an inside cabin we were expecting much smaller, but it was laid out very well and we had plenty of room with our two 7 and 9 year olds. My husband is 6'6 and he was able to shower with no problems. Very clean.
- a little remark: English is missing in communication
- Good and friendly service for restaurant, cabin and bars. Due to weather reason, some sports on top level can not be carried out, regretful.
- We liked the choice of two sittings in the market restaurant and the variety of restaurants. If you want international clientele, more information should be in English.
- Although we were only 4 of 7 non-EU passport holders on the 2300 person German speaking cruise, it was no problem at all. The entire crew spoke english and the entertainment was mainly in english. The safety drill was also in english....
