AIDAstella in Zeebrugge!

Today, AIDA Cruises' newest ships, AIDAstella has visited the port of Zeebrugge. The ship was docked alongside the 'Zweedse Kaai' from 08:00 to 18:00, giving the passengers the chanse to visit Bruges, Ghent, Brussels, Ypres, or just the coast. The weather wasn't good, the AIDAstella arrived and left in grey weather. The ship came from Le Havre in France, and her next destination was Amsterdam in The Netherlands.

 AIDA Cruises biggest visitor

AIDA Cruises is the biggest visitor in Zeebrugge this year. They'll have lot of calls in 2013. The ships are AIDAluna and AIDAstella, and at the end of the year AIDAsol. In 2012 we had 2 AIDA's in Zeebrugge:
  • AIDAblu: because of the bad weather in Antwerp.
  • AIDAmar: Maiden Call in Zeebrugge, and first official call for Zeebrugge. Followed by a few other calls of this ship.
