The extension of the lockdown in Germany until at least January 31, 2021, and a further tightening of the measures to contain the COVID-19 pandemic, such as the restriction of the radius of movement in areas with high incidence rates or the further limitation of private contacts, have led to further restrictions of public life and international travel.
As a result, German cruise line AIDA Cruises has canceled all seven-day cruises with AIDAperla and AIDAmar around the Canary Islands through the end of Feb. 2021.
The company hopes to continue the Canary Islands season as of March 6, 2021, after the infection situation in Germany has eased significantly.
For all other countries in the winter destinations of AIDA Cruises, the call of cruise ships is not permitted until further notice. Therefore, AIDA unfortunately must also cancel all cruises with AIDAprima in the Orient planned for winter 2021, including the transit voyage from Dubai to Palma (Mallorca).
The first Mediterranean cruise with AIDAstella will start on March 6, 2021.
AIDAsol will cast off for its first trip to the metropolises of Northern Europe on March 6, 2021, as well.
The transit cruise with AIDAsol from Palma (Mallorca) to Hamburg planned for Feb. 19, 2021 has to be canceled, as well as the voyages to Norway with AIDAcara and AIDAaura between Feb. 20 up to and including April 3, 2021 (AIDAcara) and March 27, 2021 (AIDAaura).
