AIDA might be a great cruising company, but the AIDAcara (ship) is just too old.
Our interior cabin was on the fifth floor, close to the elevators. The elevators didn’t bother us, but all the other things unfortunately did. We always experienced a hell of a noise when the anchor was being thrown out. The housekeeping made a lot of noise in their storage room, and in the hallway. When arriving to a new destination the captain said something through his microphone, but it was always very incomprehensible and too soft, but just hear enough to wake us up. The air conditioning wasn’t working properly and made a lot of noise. The beds were separated in a L-shape, and were attached to the wall. Even if they weren’t attached to the wall, it would be impossible to put them together. One of the two beds isn’t even a real bed, but is actually a convertible couch. I can’t remember one night that I slept without difficulties.
The interior of the boat is remarkably old, even though it has been renovated a couple of years ago.
