Entering service in 2003, the AIDAaura was the third ship to join the AIDA. Like her sister ship the AIDAvita she is a larger version of the AIDAcara. However as with all AIDA ships it still adheres to the line’s casual “club-ship” design.

The AIDAaura’s fitness and spa centres are some of the most spacious at sea, with a golf simulator, indoor putting green, volleyball/basketball courts to name but a few sporting activities on-hand. The pool itself is designed to resemble a beach with palm trees and artificial  rock formations completeing a very convincing tropical feel.

Cabins onboard are mostly standard insides and outsides; while of average size, the bright and cheerful furnishings make them more attractive than most mass-market cabins. There are only a few balcony cabins and suites; most passengers on this ship will be more interested in having fun in the public rooms which is exactly what is expected when cruising with AIDA

Entertainment does not suffer on-board the AIDAaura, with the huge ‘Das Theater’ theatre taking centre stage as the largest room on the ship. The AIDAaura also boasts the trademark AIDA bar which remains one of the largest bars at sea.
