Controlling’ is an integrative component of corporate planning and controlling at AIDA Cruises. Anchoring the goals of Green-Cruising at all stages of planning within reason of the strategic and economic corporate planning and continuously picturing the ecologic and economic goals in the operational regulation is innovative.”
