Porthole Cruise Magazine - - All Eyes On Deck -

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.
