Vacation program on board AIDA ships with music, dance and soccer workshops. Cruise company expanded its extensive children’s offerings with numerous attractions

A vacation full of action and adventure with care for kids and teens and relaxation and recreation for parents – that’s what makes family vacations on AIDA ships so exceptional.

For the upcoming summer vacations in 2022, the cruise company has once again expanded its extensive children’s offerings with numerous attractions.

On selected voyages, special offers developed exclusively for the young cruisers are on the program, with trendy themes such as hoola hoop, breakdancing, magic, freestyle soccer tricks, participatory concerts and singer/songwriter workshops.

On board AIDAprima, the band Johna will thrill guests with authentic, handmade music on the voyage from July 23 to 30, 2022, under the motto “Sing like a Star.”

Together with Johna, kids and teens find out how to put themselves in the spotlight naturally. They discover their voice, sing their favorite song and record it in the mobile recording studio. At the end of the trip, the singing skills they have learned can be presented at a joint concert in the Theatrium.

The entertainment program is rounded off with the Unique Freestylers, who impress with extraordinary ball acrobatics, spectacular moves and a breathtaking show. In their workshops, young and old soccer fans can learn fantastic tricks and juggling and impress their audience with lots of soccer fun, not only on board.

In other courses, hoola hoop and breakdance choreographies can be rehearsed. The Unique Freestylers will also make guest appearances on the voyages from July 30 to August 6, 2022 aboard AIDAprima and from July 31 to August 12, 2022 aboard AIDAsol.

Young guests can truly be enchanted on the voyage from July 28 to August 14, 2022, aboard AIDAluna. Scottish comedian and professional magician Braidon Morris will provide a whole lot of fun with his cheeky, fresh and fantastic children’s magic show, and not just for kids.

Also on board is the well-known dwarf orchestra from Hamburg, which offers both music workshops for Kids and together with the small new generation singers the instruments for it handicraft.

On a number of voyages, there is the popular Kids Prime Time live from the Theatrium. Together with the Entertainment Manager, the little sailors present a colorful mix of fun and games with exciting guests such as the AIDA Clubbies and show spots of the AIDA Stars.

On selected AIDA Selection voyages, classical guest artists additionally offer a classical music program especially for the youngest guests. For example, formations of the Cologne Symphony Orchestra, the Duo Sorores or the piano duo Hoffmann come on board.

At the “Family Ocean Lounge”, the lecturers have prepared child-friendly lectures on the destinations visited for the whole family – with exciting topics about the country, people and cultures. Another highlight is the Kids’ Question Time with the officers: There is hardly anything more exciting for children than asking real seamen exciting questions about the ship.

The balls are rolling at the big family bingo game. The first person to mark the correct numbers on their ticket wins great prizes.

At the AIDA Clubbie Disco, all dancing mice and dancing bears get their money’s worth: Every evening, the Kids Hosts invite you to dance to the most popular children’s hits together with mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, brother or sister.

Afterwards, the day ends with a cozy bedtime story (on board AIDAcosma, AIDAperla, AIDAprima and AIDAnova). During the vacations, it’s “Kids on Stage”: The kids and teens are the stars and show off their talents in specially created and lovingly rehearsed, entertaining short performances.

On AIDAcosma, AIDAnova, AIDAperla and AIDAprima they even get their own show on selected voyages with “YoungStars – AIDA Kids & Teens Talents”. For the older ones, there’s even a “Who Wants to be a Millionaire – Teens Edition” on some voyages.

Drumming and kicking out, rhythm and cool choreos: On AIDAcosma, AIDAnova, AIDAperla and AIDAprima, kids can also join in the popular fitness trend Fit4Drums with their own kids drums.

On the latest newbuilding, AIDAcosma, with 7-day voyages in the Mediterranean from/to Mallorca or from/to Barcelona, kids can look forward to a fun park for romping, climbing, shimmying and jumping. Here everything is permitted, which lets the buccaneer new generation radiate. Guests young and old will get their money’s worth – whether it’s climbing the rope towers or on the balance course.

The new Fun Park with its large indoor playground offers plenty of variety. The Racer – a double water slide over three decks -, the somewhat softer Water Slide and the children’s pool are also ready to be boarded. For new energy, a large portion of spaghetti in the family restaurant Fuego next door.

Unique offerings for different age groups, family-friendly cabins and prices, and exciting excursions for a wide range of interests make for the perfect family vacation.

Children cruise for free

AIDA offers families with children particularly attractive travel deals. Up to 2 years of age, children can generally travel with their parents at no extra charge. When booking an additional bed (3rd or 4th bed in the cabin), children (2-15 years) and youths (16-24 years) only pay the child or youth price advertised in the price table. In seasonal periods X and S, children even travel free of charge in the cabin. When booking an extra cabin, children from 2 to 15 years of age receive a 35% discount on the catalog price, while youths aged 16-24 receive a 25% discount on the catalog price.

Family-friendly cabins

On board AIDAcosma, there are the veranda and balcony cabins with extra space or with a walk-in closet, with a spacious veranda, slightly smaller balcony or a 12.5 m² sun deck. If you want a little more of everything – more living space and more room in the sun – the Veranda Cabin Deluxe is recommended.

Depending on the cabin, it can be occupied by up to five people (also on board AIDAperla, AIDAprima and AIDAnova). This means that families with three children can look forward to an even more comfortable, shared vacation. But larger groups of people who want to travel together can also take advantage of this cabin option.

For all AIDA cruises in the 2022 summer season, full vaccination protection is a prerequisite for guests aged 12 and older. All cruises are operated in accordance with AIDA Cruises’ comprehensive health and safety policy.
