The cruise ship formerly AIDA is the first cruise ship in the fleet of the German Cruise Company, AIDA Cruises.

She was built by Kvaerner-Masa Yards, Turku, Finland for Deutsche Seetouristik/Arkona Reisen and was launched in 1996 under the name AIDA. When P & O Cruises purchased a controlling stake in Arkona Reisen in 1999, they transferred the ship, and it became part of the new AIDA Cruises  fleet, and was named AIDAcara, after two of her sister ships entered operation as AIDAvita and AIDAaura.
