Ambition Itineraries

Ambition review, review of ambition.

The 1999-built MV Ambition cruise ship is currently owned and operated by the UK-based Ambassador Cruise Line . The vessel was previously known as "Costa neoRiviera" (until December 2019) and "AIDAmira" (until January 2022), and was built (under the name "MS Mistral") for Festival Cruises (1999-2002, now defunct ). After the company's collapse in 2004, Mistral was sold to Ibero Cruises (Spain) and renamed "Grand Mistral". In November 2013, the newly named Costa neoRiviera joined Costa Cruises after EUR 10 million drydock refurbishment . In 2019, the liner joined AIDA Cruises under the name "AIDAmira" (fleet's 14th boat), departing on its maiden for AIDA voyage on December 4, 2019 (out of Palma de Mallorca ).

The vessel (IMO number 9172777) as Costa neoRiviera was Italy- flagged (MMSI 247325300) and registered in Genova . Ambassador Ambition is currently Bahamas-flagged (MMSI 311001141) and registered in Nassau .

History and Ownership

On January 26, 2022, AIDA Cruises announced that AIDAmira leaves the fleet.

  • Following the announcement, a total of 66x AIDAmira cruises (itineraries with scheduled departures between April 15, 2022, and March 13, 2023) were canceled.
  • Most of the canceled voyages were 7-day "Agais Israel", 14-day long "Agais und Israel" and 7-day "Griechenland, Zypern und Israel" itineraries (both roundtrips from homeport Heraklion, Crete Greece planned thru October 7). The rest of the canceled program was based on homeporting in Cape Town (South Africa) for the 14-day "Sudafrika und Namibia" itinerary.
  • When the announcement was made, the ship was docked at Port Pula (Croatia) .

On January 27th was announced that Carnival Corporation/shipowner (via Costa Crociere SpA) sold AIDAmira to Ambassador Cruise Line. The ship (renamed "Ambition") starts services for the UK-based company in 2023, joining the fleetmate Ambience (1991-built as Regal Princess).

Prior to starting operations for Ambassador, Ambition was scheduled to enter drydock for extensive refurbishment works, staterooms and machinery upgrades, including ballast-water and sewage-water treatment plants and scrubbers (reducing gaseous emissions).

Costa neoRiviera cruise ship

In May 2021 was announced that the new brand "Ambassador Cruise Line" (UK-based company, with headquarters in Purfleet-on-Thames, Essex England) is the new operator of the "Crypto Cruise Ship" Satoshi/now Ambience . Ambassador Cruise Line targets the UK source market exclusively (50+ age travelers), trying to take the place of the popular CMV-Cruise And Maritime Voyages (2009-founded/2020- defunct ).

AIDAmira was AIDA's 14th boat and joined the "AIDA Selection" ships AIDAcara , AIDAvita , AIDAaura - fleet's smallest, and operating on longer itineraries with more unusual routes. Before its AIDA service, Costa neoRiviera was drydock refurbished and remodeled. Swimming pools were reduced from 3 to 2 (larger) with 2 large whirlpools on the sundeck. Of the 624 staterooms, 96 are Suites (80 with balconies). The refitted boat had 6 restaurants and 6 bars. AIDAmira's Maiden Voyage was on December 4, 2019, leaving from Palma de Mallorca to South Africa.

The 1600-passenger ship "MS Mistral" had a Maiden Voyage on July 17, 1999, leaving roundtrip from Venice to the Greek Islands. During the winter, Mistral offered Caribbean voyages. In 2004, the Greek company Festival Cruises experienced financial difficulties and filed for bankruptcy. The vessel was sold to Ibero Cruises (Iberojet) and renamed "Grand Mistral". In 2013, it was transferred to Costa's fleet (renamed "Costa neoRiviera") joining the "neoCollection" fleetmate Costa neoRomantica .

Ambassador Cruise Line Ambition ship's max passenger capacity  (1500) is limited to 1200, which as space ratio makes her comparable to many luxury cruise ships.

Decks and Cabins

Most AIDAmira staterooms (624 total) are 13 m2 (140 ft2) Oceanview cabins (287). The largest accommodations are Sundeck Deluxe Suites (450-510 ft / 42-47 m2, with terraces sized 115-150 ft2 / 11-14 m2). There are 96x Suites (all with balconies), 12x Balcony staterooms, 287x Oceanviews, and 231x Inside cabins, including 2x wheelchair-accessible (handicap).

The boat has 13 decks , of which 10 are passenger-accessible and 4 with cabins.

After the refit, the Ambassador Ambition ship has 714 staterooms (max passenger capacity will be reduced from 1498 to 1428), including 125x balconies and 113x Suites (sized ~670 ft2 / 62 m2 including the balcony).

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

Ambassador Ambition ship has two MDRs (main dining rooms/complimentary restaurants) plus specialty dining venues, a bistro-style Lido Cafe, 4x lounges and bars, a British Pub Restaurant, Theater Lounge (with tiered seating), Casino, Card Room, Library, Craft Studio, wellness complex (Spa and Massage Rooms, Gymnasium (Fitness Center), 2x swimming pools, retail shops.

The ship's Galleria Shops (managed by Harding UK) are duty-free and tax-free stores selling luxury brand watches, fashion and costume jewelry, watches, perfumes, cosmetics, clothing, sportswear, Ambassador-logoed merchandise, gifts and souvenirs, tobacco and liquor, convenience goods.

In March 2023 was announced that one of the new dining venues is Lupino’s Restaurant (honoring Michelle Lupino, Ambassador's Head of Destination Management who passed away in 2022). The Mediterranean-style eatery has max capacity 70 seats.

In April 2023 were announced more restaurants.

Buckingham Restaurant and Holyrood Restaurant are both with a la carte-priced menus that include classic British favorites like Sunday Roast (roasted meat and potatoes, mashed potatoes, accompaniments/Yorkshire pudding, stuffing, gravy, and condiments/apple sauce, mint sauce, or redcurrant sauce) and Shepherd’s Pie (casserole-made/oven-baked dish of ground lamb filling, savory vegetables, mashed potatoes).

Chef’s Table is an exclusive dinner-only and reservations-only venue for a la carte (9-course) dining experience and food and wine pairing.

Alfresco Grill is a poolside bar serving complimentary fast food (pizza by the slice, burgers, hot dogs, chips).

Costa neoRiviera review

Most of the onboard dining is included in cruises' fares. With the exception of the pizza on the ship's Lido Deck, you better choose the main dining room for most of the meals. As a new ship, it promotes eat-when-you-wish casual dining. There is no assigned seating and reservations are not needed. Located on Deck 11, neoRiviera's buffet features seven stations and is smaller than the buffets on most cruise ships. Its decor is a casual cafeteria. The buffet is more popular in the summer when there is a younger crowd with more kids.

Costa neoRiviera cruise ship

  • Ristorante Cetara (forward Dining Room; complimentary, with round-shaped windows and extensive wine list for dinner, with 2 fixed seatings at 6:30 or 9 pm, open seating breakfast and lunch)

In mid-September 2019, AIDA announced the name of Mira ship's godmother - Franziska Knuppe (1974-born German fashion model and actress). The liner's christening ceremony was held on November 30 (2019) in Port Palma (Mallorca-Majorca Island, Balearic Spain) .

Mira's naming ceremony was a charity event with all proceeds donated to "AIDA Cruise & Help" - a partnership with Reiner Meutsch Foundation FLY & HELP (since 2018) for collecting donations in order to build schools in newly industrializing and developing countries. The ship's naming ceremony featured a 20-min fireworks show, live performances by Johannes Oerding (German singer-songwriter), over 1000 cruise passengers (on the ship) and the Mary Amiri-hosted charity event.

Fan fact is that Franziska Knuppe is also the godmother of the fleetmate AIDAluna (2009). AIDAmira's last Master was Captain Manuel Pannzek (Captain on AIDA Selection boats since 2017).

In January 2023, Ambassador Cruise Line announced that MS Ambition's godmother will be Shirley Ann Robertson (1968-born Scottish sailor and Summer Olympic gold medallist/Sydney 2000, and Athens 2004).

The ship's christening ceremony was held on May 11, 2023, in Port Tyne/Newcastle . On the next day (May 12th) started the Maiden Voyage (14-day "Hidden Gems Of France and Spain"/Newcastle roundtrip).

The vessel (hull/yard number J31) was built in France (by Chantiers de l’Atlantique Shipyard in Saint-Nazaire ) and has volume 48123 GT-tons, weight 4923 tons, max draft 6,9 m/23 ft. The powerplant is based on two Wartsila marine diesel engines (models 8L46B and 12V38) with total output 18 MW.

Ambassador Ambition refurbishment 2023

On April 4, 2023, Ambassador's ship Ambition arrived in Bremerhaven (Germany) to enter drydock at Lloyd Werft Shipyard.

The drydocking (April 4 thru May 7th) was for an extensive refit as well as for regular maintenance and technical works, machinery upgrades (including ballast water and wastewater/graywater treatment plants), rebranding and renovation of venues, including new furniture and carpets.

The project also included hull cleaning and painting with Ambassador's new livery.

In September-November 2019, Costa neoRiviera was drydocked in Port Genoa (at San Giorgio del Porto Shipyard) for a major (EUR 50 million / USD 55 million) refurbishment project . The 1-month drydocking (October 30 through November 28) transformed Costa neoRiviera into AIDAmira.

The project involved ~1000 workers, of which 150 shipyard employees. The shipyard works included technical maintenance, hull and superstructure repainting (also adding AIDA's livery), renovated public areas, adding new cabins - including 19x balcony and 3x inside (in the area of the former Discoteca Portofino / disco nightclub) plus numerous staterooms on Deck 7.
