On 12 April, the newly constructed ADIAmar will undertake its conveyance across the Ems River to Emden after leaving the Meyer Werft shipyard at Papenburg, Germany.
The ship, which was unveiled at the yard on 1 April, will be christened in Hamburg on 12 May, accompanied by three sister ships from the line, the AIDAblu, AIDAluna and AIDAsol (an event that AIDA says is a first in cruise history). The christening will coincide with the 823rd birthday of the Port of Hamburg.
The AIDAmar is the sixth new ship built by Meyer Werft for the line and the ninth in the AIDA Club Ship fleet. The vessel, developed for the German market, is 252 metres long and 32.2 metres wide and has various environmentally friendly features built into her design.
