I saw one of the AIDA ships in St. Maarten when I was on the Oasis of the Seas (can't remember which one) and thought it was one of the coolest ships I've ever seen (love the paint job)!! I'd love to sail on one. I was wondering, are these ships/this line OK for North American (specifically Canadian) and English speaking cruisers? I only know a very little bit of German from taking it in high school. I don't want to go on a cruise where I can't communicate to any of my fellow passengers or the crew. What is the onboard atmosphere/nightlife like? What are the itineraries and where do they sail? I'm interested in the Caribbean. I tried looking at their website but it's all in German, not helpful.
