A Night to Remember

Some cruise lines name a ship and it’s rather businesslike and to the point. Others, well, they consider it a time of great celebration and pull out all the stops. The latter was the case in Hamburg on Saturday night.

Carnival’s German brand AIDA was given the opportunity to make the christening of AIDAprima the centerpiece event at the celebration of the 827th anniversary of Hamburg’s port, and they took full advantage of it. With 1.6 million people in attendance at celebration, AIDA gave them a popular German actress as the godmother, a brand-new large ship, a laser show and gigantic fireworks display.

The complete story appeared in the May 9 edition of Cruise News Daily.
