AIDAcara was launched in 1996. The 38,557 tonne ship has nine passenger decks and can carry 1,180 passengers and 370 crew. This is a family-friendly ship that appeals to German-speaking cruisers who enjoy a fun, casual atmosphere.
AIDAcara has 590 staterooms, from compact interior cabins to balcony suites. All of the suites/cabins have twin beds convertible to a queen-size bed and small bathrooms with a shower. Some cabins have extra beds to accommodate children and there are interconnected rooms for families
AIDAcara has two large main restaurants, both casual, open-seating buffets. Rossini is a dinner-only restaurant offering five- and six-course menus and reservations are required.
AIDAcara’s Body & Soul Spa has treatment rooms, a relaxation area, saunas and ice walls. There is a fitness centre, a beauty salon for pedicure, manicure and barber/hairdresser services, a pool and two hot tubs.
AIDAcara 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.
