The 252 meters long AIDAbella was handed over to the Rostock-based shipping company AIDA Cruises, at the end of March 2008. Numerous curious onlookers and shipbuilding-interested people watched the impressive spectacle of undocking in the early morning on the of February 2008.

In terms of size, technology and comfort, the AIDAbella matches her sister AIDAdiva: She consists of 55 steel blocks, each weighing 450 tons – a true challenge for man and technology. The shell itself already weighed almost 25.000 tons.

The four new diesel engines are also very impressive: They provide the club ship with 50.000 hp and allow the ship to operate at a speed of 22 knots.
