AIDA Cruises to offer Canary Island cruises starting from December
AIDA Cruises revealed today that it will be offering cruises to Canary Island beginning on 5 December 2020.
AIDA Cruises will open its cruise season around the Canary Islands on December 5, 2020 with AIDAperla, followed by AIDAmar, which will commence its winter season on December 20, 2020 with the Christmas voyage.
According to a press release, the seven-day voyages to the islands of eternal spring originate from Gran Canaria on Saturdays or Sundays.
In November, the Spanish government introduced specific regulations for safe travel in the Canaries, which are in line with the hygiene and prevention measures already developed by AIDA, the company said.
The health and safety procedures of AIDA, audited by SGS Institute Fresenius and confirmed by the DNV-GL classification society, include, inter alia, measures such as the free pre-trip COVID 19 exam, safe arrival and departure, medical treatment, distance regulations and increased measures of disinfection on board, as well as guided shore excursions.
Given the current situation in the United Arab Emirates, Spain (with the exception of the Canary Islands) and France, the AIDA schedule in the Orient and the Western Mediterranean has to be changed.
Both AIDAstella and AIDAprima cruises scheduled between 1 December 2020 and 26 January 2021 have been cancelled.
