The Cruise Examiner for 14th March 2016

AidaPrima

The AIDAprima was completed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and left Nagasaki for Hamburg today

At the ITB travel show in Berlin last week it was confrmed that Germany is now Europe’s largest cruise market and second in the world after the United States. Not only that, but with the addition of the new AIDAprima and Mein Schiff 5 this year, the number of German cruisers is expected to reach 2 million. Meanwhile, across the seas in Florida, winter will end next week without a single cruise having departed that state for Cuban waters. Eighteen cruises had been planned for the 2016 winter season but not one has yet departed. Finally, we have a brief look at Norwegian Cruise Line’s new China ship, the Norwegian Joy.
