The two mirror-symmetrical wings are made of glass fiber reinforced plastic (GRP) and have a span of 19.30 m. Parallel slats were inserted between the wing surfaces. The openings between the leading and trailing edges of the wing were completely covered with translucent GRP material.
By using modern fiber composite materials, around 50% of the weight could be saved compared to an aluminum construction. And all of this with the same strength – after all, the shade roof has to withstand wind speeds of up to 250 km/h.

The 68,500 GT cruise ship AIDAdiva was christened in April 2007, the identical AIDAbella in April 2008. The AIDAluna followed in 2009 and the AIDAbella in 2010.
