If you are a regular reader of Cruise Hive then you’ll know that we do like our cruise ship videos. Time Lapse videos are among our favorite types and this latest one featuring the Aidaprima is right up there as one of the best of all time.
In this video which was made by MK timelapse GmbH the Aidaprima can be seen under construction at the Mitsubishi shipyard in Nagasaki, Japan. Piece by piece and block by block the large ship comes together. Even though Aidaprima was at the shipyard longer than expected due to several delays, it has become a beacon in the industry by using new construction methods. The 125,600 gross ton vessel was finally completed in early 2016 and entered service in April.
Watch The Video Below:
As seen in the video the new Aida Cruises flagship was christened on the river Elbe on May 7, 2016. The ship got all the attention at a breathtaking event for the 827th Hamburg Port Anniversary. Fireworks can be seen filling up the night’s sky and the brand new vessel is seen with all lights to the max.
The 3,300 passenger ship is now operated by German based Aida Cruises and purpose-built for the German market. Aidaprima is currently sailing 7-night cruises out of Hamburg, Germany.
