On February 24th, 2008 the new club ship of the cruise company AIDA Cruises left the building hall of the Meyer shipyard in Papenburg / Germany. In the early morning around 7 am AIDAbella made her first appearance and breathed fresh air for the first time. The undocking of the “Beautiful” ran absolutely smoothly.

On the fitting-out-quay of the Meyer shipyard the remaining works on the ship will be finished. The Ems passage to Emden will be on 29 March 2008. On 23 April AIDAbella will be christened by top model Eva Padberg in Rostock-Warnemuende / Germany.
