Photo gallery AIDAcosma first call in Kiel on February 18th, 2022 with numerous photos of the AIDAcosma upon its arrival in the port of Kiel and its berth at the Ostseekai.
The 337 meter long AIDAcosma, the newest ship from the shipping company AIDA Cruises, reached the port of Kiel on Friday morning and moored at the Ostseekai cruise terminal.
Already in February this year the first call of the year will take place in Kiel. With the AIDAcosma, which somewhat surprisingly passed the Kiel Fjord on February 18 coming from Bremerhaven with the destination Kiel cruise terminal, an AIDA cruise ship of the so-called Helios class is visiting the port of the state capital Kiel for the first time
Severe weather reason for visiting the AIDAcosma in Kiel
Severe weather is the reason for visiting AIDAcosma in Kiel Just a few days ago, the cruise ship was in Bremerhaven and the first cruise for the newest ship from the AIDA fleet is scheduled for February 26 from Hamburg. However, due to several stumbling blocks and possible difficult weather conditions, the shipping company AIDA Cruises decided at short notice to send the AIDAcosma from Bremerhaven to Kiel. Around 7:00 a.m. the time had finally come: the 337 meter long and 42 meter wide AIDAcosma had first passed the Friedrichsort lighthouse on Falckensteiner Strand on its way to the port of Kiel. On its further way towards the berth at the Ostseekai, located on the west bank of the Kiel Fjord, the cruise ship also passed the Kiellinie in Kiel. And the weather also played along with the AIDAcosma first call in Kiel. No rain and hardly any wind, it looked very different the night before. And according to the weather service, the next storm is expected in a few hours. The time for the AIDA first call on February 18, 2022 could hardly have been more appropriate.
Short-term departure after short-term arrival
Actually, the AIDAcosma should have stayed in Kiel for five days. But AIDA Cruises changed its mind again at very short notice. Instead of spending several days at the Ostseekai cruise terminal, the AIDAcosma left the port of Kiel just a few hours after arrival and is now in the Baltic Sea between the Bay of Kiel and Denmark.
