Carnival Corporation's German brand AIDA Cruises starts 2021 cruise season on March 20 with the ship AIDAperla sailing around the Canaries (off Africa's northwest coast) with fly-cruise deals for predominantly German travelers. AIDA also announced that all voyages originally planned from March 6 through March 19, 2021, are effectively canceled.
Germany's federal government extended the country's lockdown to contain the Coronavirus/COVID pandemic until March. Many AIDA cruise destinations have implemented measures that restrict international travel through early spring.
With the “AIDA Promise”, the company offers passengers more flexible cruise vacation planning. A variety of booking options are part of AIDA’s commitment to its customers, ranging from free rebooking to small down payments. The “AIDA promise” is included in the cruise fare for new reservations up to March 31, 2021, and applies to departures through October 31, 2021.
All sailings are carried out in compliance with AIDA Cruises' extensive health and safety protocols, national and local laws and regulations.
All passengers whose sailing cannot take place as scheduled will be informed. To make it easy for travelers to enjoy their AIDA cruise vacations at a later date, the company offers rebooking options.
