Unusual Ship Sightings at Port Canaveral

 AIDAluna Calls on the Space Coast

It's not often we get to see a German based cruise ship here at Port Canaveral.  But, we were fortunate enough to  be at Jetty Park for one such sighting just a few days ago.

The colorful livery of AIDA Cruises was hard to miss as AIDAluna set sail from B Terminal 4, for points north.  Those trademark red lips, with the yellow and blue eyes close behind certainly make a colorful statement.   Built in 2009, she carries about 2100 passengers.

AIDA Cruises, based in Rostock, Germany is one of a number of brands operated by the Carnival Corporation.

There had been at least one previous visit, but we were unable to make it over to see her at that time.  So, we were happy to be able to arrange our schedule to allow us to see her on this visit, and snap a picture of her for you.

If you'd like to see her in person, she's scheduled to visit one more time, on Saturday, November 2, from 7 am until 6 pm.
