Gercke to Christen AIDAperla
Lena Gercke will christen AIDAperla, the 12th member of the AIDA fleet, in Palma de Mallorca on June 30, 2017. In Germany, Gercke is among the most famous and successful models and presenters. The skyline of the old city of Palma will form the perfect backdrop when the night sky above AIDAperla is transformed into a sparkling sea of color during a spectacular music and lighting event.
“With her natural charm and vitality, Lena Gercke is the ideal godmother of AIDAperla. I’m delighted that she will christen our new vessel. Lena Gercke is the perfect ambassador for the modern and unconventional attitude to life we stand for with our AIDA brand,” said Felix Eichhorn, President of AIDA Cruises.
The christening cruise from June 24 to July 1, 2017 will take guests from Palma de Mallorca to three of the most beautiful cities in the Mediterranean: Rome (Civitavecchia), Florence (Livorno) and Barcelona. Those who cannot join the celebrations in Palma de Mallorca or on board AIDAperla should still note the date of June 30, 2017 in their calendar, though, as the christening will be transmitted live on the internet and various social media channels.
Cruise fans will have the opportunity to get to know the youngest member of the fleet on several introductory trips even before the official start of the christening cruise. From July 1, 2017, the 300 meter long and 37.6 meter wide cruise ship will travel the Western Mediterranean. As of March 2018 AIDAperla will come to Hamburg.
