Lena Gercke to Christen AIDAperla in Palma

Lena GerckeLena Johanna Gercke, German fashion model and television host, has been named godmother of the new AIDAperla and will christen the ship in a pier-side ceremony taking place in Palma on June 30, 2017.

"With her natural charm and vitality, Lena Gercke is the ideal godmother of AIDAperla. I’m delighted that she will christen our new vessel. Lena Gercke is the perfect ambassador for the modern and unconventional attitude to life we stand for with our AIDA brand,” said Felix Eichhorn, President of AIDA Cruises.

"I love traveling and I’m on the road a lot - professionally as well as privately. All the more I am looking forward to becoming the godmother of a beautiful ship such as AIDAperla. I think it’s great to discover many countries in a short time and to have a wonderful hotel always with you,” commented Gercke.

The christening cruise is scheduled from June 24 to July 1, sailing from Palma and calling in Rome, Florence and Barcelona as the ship is being delivered two months earlier than anticipated.
