AIDAsol was built in 2011. The 71,304 tonne ship can accommodate 2,200 passengers and 646 crew. It appeals to German-speaking couples, solo travellers and families looking for good value, entertainment and casual dining.
There are 1,097 staterooms on board in various categories, from compact interior cabins to balcony suites. All of the suites/cabins have twin beds that convert to a queen-size bed and a compact bathroom with shower. Some cabins have extra beds to accommodate children and there are interconnected rooms for families
AIDAsol has three self-serve buffet restaurants: Markt (Market), Weite Welt (Wide World) and Bella Vista for Italian dishes. Other dining options include the Buffalo Steakhouse, Rossini Restaurant (dinner only) and Pizzeria Mare.
The Body & Soul Spa Complex spans two decks with saunas, indoor whirlpool, massage and treatment rooms and relaxation rooms. There is an open-air wellness deck for nude sunbathing, plus a fitness centre and a beauty salon for pedicures, manicures and barber/hairdresser services.
AIDAsol is recommended for families with children. Kids are split into age groups: Seepferdchen (4-6 year olds), Delfine (7-9 year olds), Sharks (10-11 year olds), Orcas (12-13 year olds), and Teens (14-17 year olds). Each age group has a specific playroom and there is an activities program similar to a holiday camp.
