AIDA Cruises Embarks on Its Largest Fleet Modernization

AIDA Cruises has announced AIDA Evolution, the most ambitious modernization endeavor in its history.

The initiative will see a comprehensive upgrade of the Sphinx series ships, including AIDAdiva, AIDAbella, and AIDAluna, set for 2025 and 2026.

The modernization will introduce a fresh interior design across the ships and update technical systems and equipment. The overhaul aims to enhance guest experiences with completely redesigned staterooms and an increased number of luxury suites.

For the first time in the Sphinx class, exclusive areas and services will be available, particularly benefiting suite guests. The culinary experience aboard will also see an expansion, with a greater variety of dining options, signature bars, and upgraded services.

Central to the ships, the Theatrium—a luminous, stylish area—will receive a makeover with new seating and a cohesive color scheme. Families will enjoy new activity zones designed specifically for children.

Felix Eichhorn, President of AIDA Cruises, emphasized the brand’s role as a market leader in innovating cruising. He highlighted that the Sphinx series ships have significantly contributed to cruise history through their unique design and will continue to evolve under the AIDA Evolution program.

AIDA Cruises is also focusing on sustainable cruising. The brand has been a proponent of reducing emissions and increasing efficiency, with investments in advanced propulsion technologies and environmental systems.

As part of the Carnival Corporation & plc, AIDA Cruises is committed to reducing its carbon intensity by 20% by 2026. The dry dock overhauls are part of this commitment, aiming to decrease fuel consumption and enhance energy efficiency.

The Sphinx series ships, launched between 2007 and 2013, will undergo their transformations starting with AIDAdiva in spring 2025. AIDAbella and AIDAluna are scheduled for their upgrades in fall 2025 and spring 2026, respectively.
