Video of AIDAsol Christening

AIDA's eighth ship, AIDAsol, was christened in Kiel on Saturday night (April 9, 2011). Prior to the actual naming, AIDA sponsored a free concert with some of Germany's most popular entertainers, which was attended by some 45,000 people. The highlight of the evening, was, of course when the ship was named by godmother Bettina Zwickler, followed by a massive fireworks display over the harbor. Immediately following the ceremony, AIDAsol departed on her maiden voyage.
