In 2013, 763,700 guests from Germany chose to travel with AIDA Cruises – 20 percent more than in the year before, according to a statement from AIDA Cruises – which added this meant the company was growing twice as fast as the German market. In 2013, the German market for ocean cruises grew by some 9.2 percent to 1.69 million passengers.

“Interest in ocean cruises remains high. Since we offer exceptional value for money, the best service, and innovative product ideas, we are consistently able to persuade new target groups to take a cruise with AIDA, without losing sight of our regular guests,” said Michael Ungerer, President of AIDA Cruises, on the occasion of the world’s leading tourism fair, ITB, in Berlin. “This success would not be possible without our many partners in the travel agency business. I thank all of them for our excellent working relationship.”
