The new AIDA Cruises' ship, AIDAnova, is scheduled to leave Papenburg, Germany on Monday, October 8, 2018 to be conveyed on river Ems to Eemshaven Netherlands.

All details are subject to the wind, weather and water levels and are therefore without guarantee. Timings may be changed at short notice.

For the numerous spectators who want to watch the crossing from the dikes along Ems, AIDA distributes croissants, pretzels, tea and coffee at Meyer shipyard, at Friesen-bridge and at Jann-Berghaus-bridge.

AIDAnova is due to proceed in reverse up river Ems to North Sea. The approach proved successful in the past as it makes manoeuvring easier. Two tugs will provide assistance in the process.
