AIDAPerla : Mediterranean Adventures
Months ago, we were invited by AIDA, a German cruise line, to attend the maiden voyage of their brand new ship -- AIDAPerla. This would be our very first cruise as a family. It was fun over the last few months to try to explain to Dorothy the idea of a cruise. "It's big, big boat. And we sleep on it, eat on it, there's water slides, pools, and a kids club.." It's a pretty fantastic idea for a toddler. Let's just say we were all very excited!
We were very excited to revisit some old and new stops in the Mediterranean. The boat started and ended in Mallorca, Spain and had stops in Rome, Florence and Barcelona. Cruises are a great way to get a little taste of a city. And then you know where you want to spend more time or don't need to revisit.
