Interesting! This will be AIDA's first ship to call at a U.S. home port will it not?

Yep, this is their first time in the U.S. and it'll be very interesting to see how many changes they make in order to accommodate our cruisers as they're not very popular with Americans traveling in Europe.

Curious as to why they aren't popular with Americans sailing out of Europe?

Never sold one and never bought one, so I can't speak from first-hand experience, but from what a friend of mine told me, in a nutshell, it's like a Carnival cruise for young Germans who like to party.

As I said, it'll be interesting to see how or if they change to accommodate the U.S. crowd and what type of crowd they attract.
