Aida's New Cruise Ship Has New Bow Design

Aida Cruises' New AidaPrima - Radical new bow design.

Aida Cruises has unveiled photos of their new ship - the AidaPrima. Aida Cruise Line's new AidaPrima will have a non-traditional bow. This design has been used for other types of ships, but this is the first time on a cruise-ship.

 Unfortunately the new design helps improve the fuel consumption, but is not aesthetically pleasing. The vertical bow does not provide a sleek profile but almost gives her a battleship appearance.

The 125,000 ton AidaPrima is currently being constructed at the Mitsubishi Shipyard in Japan for a 2015 delivery. Her maiden voyage will be an 88 day sailing from Yokohama, Japan on March 20, 2015, stopping at ports in Asia, India, the Mideast, Mediterranean, Atlantic Europe and ending in Hamburg, Germany on 6/16/2015.
