The ship is one of the newest cruise ships from the German Line Aida Blu. Fifteen decks high, a weight of 71.300 tonnes and 1096 cabins she easily takes 2500 passengers around the world. Passengers have for sure no time to get bored; there are 6 restaurants on board, thousands of square meters of deck space and plenty of facilities for sports, spa and wellness.
The cruise tourism in Antwerp is increasing each year and we are very happy to welcome the Aida Blu weekly in Antwerp until the end of the cruise season. Her next visits are Wednesday 28/09/11 and Wednesday 05/10/11.
Another cruise ship “Bremen” from Hapag Lloyd is also arriving next week on Friday 30 September 2011.
The biggest cruise ship in Antwerp so far was the “Oasis of the Seas” and is 360 meters long. But the “Aida Blu” is very cute too with her 250 meters “only”.
If you want to visit Antwerp and see these cute “little” ships make sure you visit the bank during day time. They usually arrive before 8 AM and leave at 6 PM because all passengers want to have diner quiet on the terrace of their cabin, far away from us crying because we are left behind.
