Second New Generation Cruise Ship Under Construction In Japan

One of Aida Cruises upcoming cruise ships is currently under construction in Japan. Take a look at this glorious video that shows the large vessel at the shipyard.

The cruise ship is the Aidamia and is the second in two new generation ships that are being built by Mitsubishi in Nagasaki, Japan. The ship will be 125,000 gross tons when completed and will carry 3,250 passengers. Aidamia will make its debut in March 2016. You might think this is huge for the german based cruise line but parent company Carnival Corporation recently ordered two 180,000 gross ton vessels for Aida. Those new ships will have the largest passenger capacity in the world.

The video really shows at how big the ship is and even the Japanese shipyard. Aidamia will bring new design elements to the industry and moves building trends from Europe to Asia. Some amazing views in the footage including mountains and navy ships.

the first ship in this new generation class for Aida Cruises is the Aidaprima which will be making its debut in October 2015. The ship is purpose-built for the German market and will bring a ton of new features to the cruise line. German cruisers will get the chance to experience the first of these two advanced cruise ships when the Aidaprima begins sailing from Hamburg, Germany all year round later this year.
