Several new cruise ships are coming on board this spring. Perhaps the most accessible to U.S. travelers is Carnival’s Cruise Line’s Carnival Magic, which sales May 1. Able to fit more than 3,600 passengers, it will e Carnival’s largest ship. What is different about this one is a kids’ water park called “Water Works” and hot tubs that extend beyond the stern – I think that is a neat feature.
Meanwhile, AIDA from Germany is launching the 2,184-passenger AIDAsolon on April 9. My friends will love this benefit: AIDAsolon features a micro-brewery that has beer brewed from purified sea water! The ship also features a high-tech 4D theater, complete with moving chairs, air jets, and odors. Is anyone visiting Europe in the near future?
