AIDA to start operations on September 6
AIDA Cruises, the German brand of Carnival Corporation, is preparing to restart its cruise operations with the first ships from German ports at the beginning of September 2020.
The permission of the flag State of Italy for the restart was a prerequisite for this.
The first trips from Kiel will begin on 6 September 2020.
In the coming days, AIDA Cruises will review the relevant details of this decision and will work closely with all the responsible authorities of the flag State of Italy and the classification society in order to enforce the new protocols and regulations in a responsible manner , the company said.
Unfortunately, as the current developments indicate, not all European travel destinations have yet been given the requisite conditions for safe travel.
Due to the current situation , the company will extend its cruise season until 30 September 2020, with the exception of the above-mentioned departures from Kiel (beginning on 6 September 2020) and Hamburg (beginning on 12 September 2020).
