The AIDAperla has left Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in Japan for her ‘sea trials’. These are the set of performance tests which newbuilds all undergo before entering service.
AIDAperla will enter passenger service from Palma de Mallorca on July 1, 2017, sailing week-long cruises from Palma to Barcelona, also calling on Civitavecchia, Corsica and Livorno.
In September the AIDAperla will sail four different cruise routes in the Western Mediterranean.
AIDAperla then moves to Northern Europe for summer 2018, picking up the AIDAprima’s previous route, form Hamburg with calls in Southampton, Le Havre, Zeebrugge and Rotterdam.
