Meyer Werft sailed AIDAmar down the Ems River last night (the evening of April 12, 2012) from their yard in Papenburg (Germany) to Emden (Netherlands) where it will be based for sea trials. AIDAmar completed the overnight trip and arrived at approximately 6:30am this morning (April 13). Later this morning, AIDAmar left for its first sea trial in the North Sea.
