Ships have several milestones when they are being built, such as the float out, or the installation of the funnel, but AIDA ships have another milestone - the day they get their artwork on the bow - the trademark lips, eyes and waves.
AIDAprima is under construction at the Mitsubishi yard in Nagasaki, and it has passed just such a milestone.
The complete story appeared in the April 10 edition of Cruise News Daily.
