Seetours places conversion order with Blohm + Voss Repair GmbH
On January 30, 2004, Seetours, a subsidiary of Carnival Corporation & plc, the world-wide largest cruise shipping company, placed an order for the conversion of the ocean-going vessel A`ROSA BLU to the club ship AIDAblu with Blohm + Voss Repair GmbH, a company of ThyssenKrupp Werften.
In the time from April 13 to 27, 2004, the ship will be provided with the typical characteristics of the ships of the AIDA line.
During the conversion, 34 cabins (26 inner and 8 outer cabins) will be added to the already existing 798 cabins. The inner cabins will be arranged in the former cinema, which has been in operation not very often. Movies can instead be watched in the theater of the AIDAblu.
In addition, the Internet corner and the booking counter of the Shore Excursion Crew will be refurbished as open areas as it is standard on ships of the AIDA line.
The theater will be modernized and the chairs and tables replaced by benches typical on AIDA ships increasing the theater capacity by approx. 300 seats.
The ship will be converted in cooperation with Partner Ship Design in Hamburg.
