AIDAnova FourElements
365 Days of Fun on Deck
We Know How to Groove with the Four Elements
When designing the activity deck of the AIDAnova, the elements water, air, earth, and fire were the inspiration. The adventure world, which extends over two decks, has a glass roof and guarantees fun 365 days a year. In terms of lighting and sound technology, Amptown System Company attached particular importance to ensuring that the integration of media technology blends perfectly with the ambience and that the technical functions are not impaired by the high humidity.

In the leisure world – which offers a water pool with three slides, a climbing park, a sports deck and a family restaurant – not only is it warm, but the humidity is noticeably higher. Particularly high demands are placed on the equipment used. Although it is an indoor location, it has to be treated like an outdoor area in terms of the electrical system. The area is illuminated with spotlights that comply with the IP65 protection class and are protected against dust and water jets from any angle. Especially at night, they contribute significantly to an atmospheric ambience. All lights are controlled via a replay unit centrally located in the Broadcast Center (BCC). Different lighting installations can be operated synchronously from the BCC, resulting in a remarkable external effect. A real eye-catcher is a 12 square meter LED wall, which is suitable for outdoor use in terms of its specification. During the day, it shows information about the on-board program and the latest films in the evening. A small dance floor serves as a children’s disco. All speakers and spotlights used are specially treated and protected against salt water. All metal parts are made of seawater-resistant V4A stainless steel. Particularly remarkable are the different RAL/NCS colors of the loudspeaker cabinets. Thus, they blend in almost perfectly with the architecture everywhere on board.
