Not much to say about the AIDAbella. She was completed as the second ship of AIDA Cruises' Sphinx class of newbuildings, and as such lacks the additional structures above the bridge introduced in the latter ships of the series (such as the AIDAmar featured in the previous entry).
The photographs below show the AIDAbella departing from Helsinki West Harbour in the afternoon of 28 June 2013, photographed from Sisä-Hattu. Click on the images to see them in larger size.
