Aidaperla is one step closer to regular service after departing the Nagasaki shipyard in Japan yesterday, April 3, 2017. Aidaperla is the second in a new generation class for the German-based cruise line and will probably be the last with an even newer class already under construction.

On May 9 the new vessel will make a stop to pick up more crew members and provisions ready for its maiden voyage out of its new home port of Palma de Mallorca, Spain. Aidaperla is scheduled to arrive at the port on June 1, 2017, and will then set sail on a special 5-night cruise with calls in Spain and France.
