events are screened on the LED wall.
and culinary art meld in the new Time Machine restaurant where guests enter a
world full of marvels, madness and surprises. During a fantastic dinner trip
through time, history and future, reality and fantasy, entertainment and the
pleasures of the table all blur together in a magical way. Everything twists
and turns; waiters become magicians, conjuring a delicious three-course meal
onto the table. It's a fabulous experience for children too!
The Art Club is
the multimedia version of the AIDA Gallery, offering an exciting mix of art,
photography, videos, games and high-tech. Apart from the works of well-known
artists that are on show, guests can also enjoy virtual art using 3D glasses.
The bar, designed to look like the lobby of a city hotel, also features handy
charging points for smartphones and tablets.
Every square centimeter

cold gray routine! And hello, warm, fluffy wellness heaven! The Body & Soul
Organic Spa aboard AIDAnova covers an area of 3,500 square meters and offers
over 80 of the most beautiful treatments from all over the world. For the first
time, the ship has two private outdoor sun islands for special wellness
experiences for couples. Another new feature on board is an outdoor sport area
with endurance equipment and training areas for morning yoga, pilates and many
other sports. And by the way – the Juicy's & Smoothies Bar at Body &
Soul Sport will be serving up deliciously refreshing smoothies and juices made
from fresh fruit and vegetables.
the Beach Club, summer never ends. This light-filled piece of paradise, as warm
as the Caribbean, is protected by a foil dome that lets the sun in, allows
guests to tan, but keeps the wind and rain firmly outside. The new bridge
across the waterscape provides a fantastic view of the stage and additional
spots for relaxing.
The many highlights on board also include the 20
different types of stateroom. The new Penthouse Suite extends over 73 square
meters, split across two light-filled decks. Panorama windows and the
20-square-meter sun deck ensure that guests enjoy spectacular views.
For the first time, families can benefit from
extra space in the Veranda Staterooms Deluxe on Decks 15, 16 and 17, right
beside the Four Elements and the Kids Club. The suites, with separate bedroom
and a walk-in closet, can accommodate up to five people. The Junior Suites with
their light-filled conservatory are also a new feature.
The new and cozy Single Staterooms are
available as indoor staterooms or even with a balcony.
Pleasure for advanced learners: culinary diversity
a total of 17 restaurants, AIDAnova offers hitherto unprecedented culinary
diversity. Popular classics are complemented by new trends from all over the
world. That's the case, for example, on the Street Food strip. At "Brot &
Stulle" guests can enjoy tasty filled baguettes and rolls, or savor the best
currywurst on the seven seas at the "Scharfe Ecke." Or how about a doner kebab?
The Street Food strip is open almost around the clock and we think it's going
to be a massive hit.
At Best Burger @ Sea it's
favorite burgers all the way – because the guests can put together their own
custom burger choosing from a wide range of ingredients and home-made sauces –
using tablets at their table, or by smartphone.
Thanks to the impressive
multimedia projections, guests at the new Ocean's fish restaurant will get the
feeling that they're actually in the ocean, gazing at its treasures without a
care in the world.
Churrasco means meat skewers
that are grilled over an open flame or charcoal. It's a Brazilian national dish
that will in future be served up at the Churrascaria Steakhouse. The
"cortadores" slice the meat directly from the skewer at the table. Barbecues
will be held on the terrace.
At the Ice Cream Factory guests
can enjoy so much more than just chocolate and vanilla. We're talking here
about a real passion for ice cream which is made on board using the best
natural ingredients – with irresistible flavors and new varieties every day.
diversity of Asian cuisine will be celebrated on board AIDAnova at numerous
restaurants. At the new Teppanyaki Grill, guests sit together in a sociable
circle, adding their desired ingredients to a pot that is sunken into the
table. The end result is tasty soups and stews. Guests choose their ingredients
and they are freshly prepared on hot teppanyaki plates. A new highlight at the
East Restaurant is an original tandoori oven in which traditional Indian dishes
Those who prefer something
more rustic can look forward to the cozily traditional Brauhaus microbrewery
which, for the first time, will feature a spacious beer garden with a view of
the ocean. The fresh ocean air will whet appetites for the hearty specialties
and fresh draft beer from the ship's own brewery.
The new bars such as the
French Kiss Bar, the smart Rossini Bar, the Tokyo Bar or the South American-inspired
Vinothek are the perfect complement to the onboard restaurants.
World-class entertainment at sea
AIDA Cruises' world-class entertainment is being enhanced with new
formats that will involve the guests even more than before. Surprising and extraordinary
entertainment options, produced exclusively by and for AIDA, are certain to
keep guests well entertained.
At Studio X, the guests are there live and right in the thick of
things. This is the first TV studio at sea where shows are produced and broadcast.
Up to 500 studio guests can get a close-up look and join in when game shows,
comedy, cookery shows, well-known TV formats and workshops are made. In the
evenings, the seating stands are rolled to the side, and the studio is
transformed into a dance floor.
Those whose eyes glaze over at the sound of Neil Young, and who
turn up the volume when they hear the Rolling Stones or the Kings of Leon, will
love the new Rock Box Bar. They can enjoy the finest live music in a cozy pub
atmosphere. Those who are feeling brave can become stars themselves at the
karaoke, or guests can display their music knowledge at the rock quiz.
Cube – the in place for night owls – is super stylish and glamorous. Guests can
dance into the early hours, meet new people, and enjoy chilled drinks at the
bar. During the day the disco is transformed into a "school" for cocktail and
The world's first LNG-powered cruise ship
AIDAnova takes travelers to
fascinating destinations around the world – and she also makes a contribution
towards preserving the beauty of the oceans and our planet. AIDAnova is the
world's first ship that can be powered entirely with environmentally friendly
liquefied natural gas (LNG). This reduces nitrogen oxide emissions by up to 80
percent, and CO2 emissions by a further 20 percent.
AIDAnova cruises can now be
booked at travel agencies, at the AIDA Customer Center by telephone at +49 (0)381/202
