This year, guests on board the entire AIDA fleet can again look forward to plenty of festival tent atmosphere very much embracing Bavarian style. From arm wrestling and veal sausage sucking through to yodeling, there will be something for everyone. The AIDA Oktoberfest Special 2018 will offer a varied Oktoberfest schedule with many promotions such as “Oktoberfest fun”, “Alpenglow” or the family day for young and old in traditional dress.
This year’s top acts will provide the perfect musical entertainment for people sitting and dancing on the benches. At the same time as the traditional tapping of the first barrel of festival beer on September 22, 2018, in the Bavarian capital, the top acts will board AIDAprima and AIDAperla. Mickie Krause and voXXclub will be present on board AIDAprima and Antonia from Tyrol and the HÖHNER on board AIDAperla. The live bands will perform their best-known hits to guarantee plenty of party fun and a festival vibe on each of the trips from September 22 to 29, 2018. The band voXXclub, which was formed in the kitchen of a student flat in Munich, will be performing on board this year for the first time. Today the five pop and rock musicians perform a legendary show on stage in sold-out venues.
Guests will also enjoy traditional Bavarian culinary fare. As well as classics such as knuckle of pork, chicken, sausage salad and dumplings, the journey on board AIDAprima from September 22 to 29, 2018, will also feature other typical specialties, originally prepared by the AIDA gourmet patron and world-champion pastry chef Andrea Schirmaier-Huber.
