With 18 decks and space for 3,300 passengers, the 300m-long AIDAprima is the new flagship of Rostock-based cruise line AIDA Cruises. Wanzl has been on board since the AIDAprima moored in its home port of Hamburg for the first time in April.

Wanzl has been awarded a major order from AIDA Cruises after its launch in the Port of Hamburg with the eleventh ship in the "Kussmund" fleet in May, offering an extensive range of new features, including the German cruise market’s first floating ice rink, a Skywalk made of glass and the longest indoor water slide on a passenger ship. Overhauled from bow to stern, there are now 14 categories of cabin and 1,643 in total for passengers to choose from. From inside cabins to veranda cabins with their own terrace through to spacious suites, every guest will find the accommodation they are looking for.

Room service on wheels!

Wanzl is lending a hand behind the scenes and serving the passenger cabins, with the Leipheim-based manufacturer supplying almost 1,000 of its trolleys to help provide first-class service to guests on the 18 deck, 54-metre-high ship. Among the 18 decks 98 Premium ZP Classic Chambermaid trolleys help provide a perfect service to the rooms, transporting fresh towels and guest supplies to cabins and taking dirty laundry away. Waste disappears out of guests’ sight into the rubbish bag with a polyester cover. The 5th castor underneath the middle of the trolley makes the body itself highly agile in small spaces, easy to manoeuvre and able to be turned on the spot. This ultra-easy handling is extremely important since every inch of space counts on a passenger ship.

Even more laundry can be carried on the 120 laundry trolleys. With their ingenious folding mechanism, the trolleys can be stored between uses without taking up too much space.

Logistics on a roll!

250 cruise mobile containers are used to optimise baggage logistics on the cruise ship. They ensure luggage is transported quickly and carefully from check-in at the port to the cabins during embarkation. All items of luggage are pre-sorted on the cruise mobile containers ready to be transported to the correct deck and cabin. The process is reversed during disembarkation.

More than 50 luggage collection trolleys also carry passengers’ suitcases, trolleys and other luggage items. A further 350 order picking and transport trolleys keep the vast logistics operation running on board the AIDAprima each day, meaning passengers can sit back, relax and enjoy every minute of their holiday out at sea and thoroughly spoil themselves in the 12 restaurants, three snack bars and fourteen cafés and bars. Cruises for holidaymakers will be running every week of the year from May, starting in Hamburg and heading for London, Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam.
