FOOD AND BIER
In keeping with the informal theme, there is no main dining room, and other than a few specialty restaurants that charge a small supplement, you never need to make a dining reservation. Dine anytime you please, with whomever you please. There are 12 unique restaurants aboard AIDAperla, and about half are buffet style. The food is extremely varied, from a large Asian restaurant, a sushi bar, a steakhouse, Italian and French restaurants, and a beautiful and elegant gourmet restaurant. The house wine and beer are included at every meal and there are small supplements for more expensive wine and cocktails.
The uniquely German Brauhaus is a lively space where guests sit at long wooden tables, unless there are sing-alongs, where guests are dancing on the tables. The
AIDAperla biermeister brews three different beers aboard using actual seawater!
One of my favorite spaces was the Lanai Bar on Deck 7 at the very back of the ship. The large open bar features unique, outward facing booths where guests face the water yet are protected from the wind. It’s the best- designed space I’ve ever seen on a cruise ship.
