For the first time in the history of AIDA Cruises, the German contemporary market unit in Carnival Corporation & plc group, a whole family will name the newest ship AIDAnova.
Family Mirza from Hanau in Hesse was selected from hundreds of applicants by a jury.
“On August 31, 2018 Sonja (31) and Asad (33) Mirza with their children Sophia (2) and Adrian (3) will christen the newest ship of the AIDA fleet. 25,000 spectators are expected at the dazzling event at the Meyer shipyard in Papenburg. The AIDA Open Air with a spectacular christening show and a live concert by star DJ David Guetta is one of the biggest events in northern Germany. And what is more: Sonja and Asad will celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary on the day of the christening,” AIDA Cruises said in a statement.
