Carnival Cruise Ship to Float Out

Aidanova will be the largest Carnival-owned cruise ship to date so you can understand why we’re looking forward to its arrival



The Aida Cruises vessel is scheduled to float out of the covered construction hall at the Meyer Werft shipyard on August 21. As long as weather conditions are good we’ll get to see the entire vessel for the first time

The LNG powered ship will sail its maiden voyage from Hamburg on December 2, 2018 to the Canary Islands. The ship will offer year-round 7-day cruises catered for the German market. The same class ship which is fully powered on liquefied natural gas has also been ordered for Carnival Cruise Line, Costa Cruises, P&O Cruises and another for Aida Cruises.

The ship is 180,000 gross tons and feature over 2,600 passenger cabins.
