Germany's extended lockdown (until at least January 31) and new Coronavirus (COVID-19) related restrictions, such as the further limitation of private contacts or the restriction of the radius of movement in areas with high incidence rates, have led to further restrictions of international travel.
The company said it hoped to continue the Canaries season as of March 6, after the infection situation in Germany had eased significantly.
For the other countries in the winter destinations of the line, the call of cruise vessels is not permitted until further notice. Therefore, AIDA had to cancel all AIDAprima cruises from Dubai (scheduled for 2021 winter), including the repositioning voyage (Suez Canal transit) from Dubai (Port Rashid, UAE) to Palma de Mallorca (Majorca Island, Balearic Spain).
AIDA's first Mediterranean voyage (AIDAstella ship) is currently scheduled to depart on March 6.
AIDAsol starts its Northern European program on March 6. AIDAsol's relocation voyage (RepositionCruises.com) from Palma to Hamburg Germany (February 19) was cancelled, as well as the AIDAcara and AIDAaura cruises to Norway previously scheduled between February 20 and March 27 (AIDAaura) and April 3 (AIDAcara).
