Heaven laughed at the angels of everyday life. The sun god also gave one and 20 BILD am SONNTAG winners great weather on their round trip from Palma via La Spezia, Civitavecchia (near Rome), Marseille and Barcelona.
In this way, the selected champions can truly enjoy their dream vacation in the new AIDAcosma.
The group of nurses, prison officials and refugee aides visited some of the most beautiful big cities, spent raucous afternoons in the Jacuzzi and dined at the 17 onboard restaurants.
Captain Vincent Kovalka (46) and General Manager Heidi Roth (41) let a look behind the scenes.
While hotelier Ralf Siebelt (67) was allowed to glimpse the operations in the kitchen, students André Bär (23) and Thore Flechsig (26) were able to watch the beer being brewed on the luxury steamer.

Pediatric nurses Lisa Beiser and Fabian Muller (both 30) from Darmstadt (Hesse) tested the wellness area. Lisa: “The rest served us well!

The Merklinger couple and their happiness in Barcelona
Sandra Merklinger, 51, and her husband Stephen, 54, met from Krefeld in Barcelona in 1985 – but failed to exchange contacts.
Sandra to BamS: “In 2012 we found each other on the Internet, in 2014 we got married in love.” Then the shock: Stephen developed amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) last year – a serious, terminal illness of the nervous system.
Sandra: “Life expectancy is still three years.” Her Biggest Wish: A cruise to the city where her love began.
The office manager was quoted: “We’ve only taken the bus around Barcelona for one ride, but it’s been like a ride for the past 37 years.
