The Carnival Corporation-owned subsidiary company AIDA Cruises announced it starts Canary Island voyages starting on December 5, 2020. For the winter season in the Canaries will be deployed AIDAperla and AIDAmar (starting operations on December 20).
The 7-day roundtrips start on Saturdays or Sundays out of homeport Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Canary Islands).
The Spanish government adopted regulations for safe travel in the Canary Islands in November, which are in line with AIDA Cruises' already established prevention and hygiene measures. AIDA’s health and safety protocols, audited by SGS Institute Fresenius and confirmed by DNV-GL classification society, include measures like the free Coronavirus (COVID-19) test before the cruise, secure arrival/departure, medical care, distance regulations, increased disinfection measures onboard, as well as guided shore trips.
Due to the current situation in the UAE (United Arab Emirates), Spain (except the Canaries) and France, AIDA has to adjust its cruise schedule. All sailings on AIDAprima (from Dubai UAE) and AIDAstella (from Palma de Mallorca, Balearic Spain) planned between December 1, 2020-January 26, 2021 are cancelled.
