AIDA extends Canary Islands cruises through mid-May

   March 6, 2021 ,   Cruise Industry

AIDA Cruises announced it is extending the cruise season around the Canary Islands with its AIDAperla until the middle of May.

The start and destination port of the 7-day sailings is Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain

The cruise line has implemented a comprehensive set of enhanced health & safety protocols for passengers and crew utilized on a number of AIDA cruises in fall 2020. In recent months, the Canaries have been a holiday destination in Europe with low incidence rates. As a result of the government's regulations for safe travel, which coincide with AIDA Cruises' enhanced health and safety protocols, the guests of the line have been able to enjoy relaxing holidays.

The enhanced health and safety protocols include mandatory polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test traveling, regular health checks, medical care including test capacities onboard, extensive distance and hygiene rules, as well as other measures.

Voyages in other AIDA destinations are currently not possible but with the extension of the line's cruise season around the Canaries with AIDAperla, AIDA will be able to offer all passengers an attractive holiday option. This applies to customers who originally booked a trip in the Mediterranean on:

  • AIDAstella with departures between March 20-May 11, 2021
  • AIDAperla with departures up to and including May 14, 2021
  • AIDAblu between April 4-April 25, 2021
  • AIDAmar between March 21-April 18, 2021.  

The same applies to all customers who were originally scheduled to depart with AIDA Cruises' AIDAsol from Rotterdam and Hamburg to Norway and Northern Europe between March 20-April 3, 2021, or with AIDAluna from Hamburg on March 31 and April 4, 2021.

The repositioning cruises with AIDAmira due to depart on April 16, and with AIDAvita on April 20, 2021, have been canceled as well.
