Over the last months, huge efforts have been made worldwide to stem the spread of the coronavirus. Travel in Europe is slowly restarting. In expectation of a normalisation of tourism, AIDA Cruises is working intensively on detailed plans for a speedy restart.
However, as a result of the continuing effects of the corona virus, the conditions for international travel to the USA and Canada are not currently in place. In Canada, for example, cruise calls are not yet possible until the end of October, while in the USA there is an entry stop for Europeans until further notice. AIDA Cruises wants to give guests the necessary planning security for their vacation. Therefore, AIDA Cruises unfortunately has to suspend all its cruises with ports in the USA and Canada this year. All guests having booked one of these cruises with AIDA will be informed. Bookings will be processed chronologically according to departure date.
AIDA regrets very much that it is not possible to offer guests the unforgettable holiday experience they had hoped for at the moment. The focus is now on developing a framework of policies and procedures for a restart. In doing so, AIDA is taking into account the forthcoming openings in European travel. The protection of guests and crewmembers' health are AIDA's top priority at any time. For this purpose, AIDA is in close coordination with the different national and international authorities and health organizations.
