AIDAprima is a cruise ship built by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) for the German cruise operator AIDA Cruises. MHI was awarded a contract to build two new generation cruise ships for AIDA Cruises in August 2011.
The cruise vessel was the first to sail from the German port of Hamburg all year round. AIDAprima has a length of 300m, width of 37.6m and a draft of 8m. The gross tonnage of the cruise ship, which will be classified under the DNV GL class, is 124,500t. The new cruise ship will feature 1,643 staterooms of 14 different categories to accommodate up to 3,300 passengers.
The Hyperion Class AIDAprima was the first cruise ship to use MHI’s proprietary technology Mitsubishi Air Lubrication System (MALS). The system forms small air bubbles, which cover the bottom of the vessel like an “air carpet”, thereby reducing friction between the hull and seawater when sailing. MALS reduces carbon dioxide and fuel consumption by approximately 7%.
The ship is fitted with a detailed filter system, which reduces harmful emissions such as soot particles, nitrogen oxide and sulphur oxide. The new cruise ship will feature 1,643 staterooms of 14 different categories to accommodate up to 3,300 passengers.
The luxurious Veranda staterooms vary in size, from 20m² to 2,520m², and feature walk-in closets, two bathrooms and a convertible sofa. They also have a 6m² sunning area with space for up to two sun loungers. Deck eight of the vessel feature Lanai staterooms, which features a winter garden and a large veranda. The doors to the winter garden in the rooms can be opened all the way to create a 32m² of open, sunny area.
AIDAprima’s 36 Panorama staterooms provide exclusive access to a new patio deck, housing the bar, a protected sunny area and a private water landscape.
The 32 suites on-board the ship have 53m² of living space with up to 82m² of private sun deck. Each suite features a separate bedroom, a king size sofa bed, two bathrooms and a walk-in closet.
