AIDA Cruises offers vacation program around Canary Islands

ROSTOCK, Germany, March 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- AIDA Cruises currently offers seven-day trips around the Canary Islands with AIDAperla departing from Las Palmas, Gran Canaria.

With a testing strategy for guests and crew members already utilized on several cruises, it is AIDA's top priority for all guests to enjoy their vacation safely. Thanks to the Spanish government's regulations for safe travel, which coincide with AIDA's enhanced health and safety protocols, many AIDA guests have been able to enjoy relaxing holidays in the Canary Islands.

The enhanced health and safety protocols -- tested by SGS Institut Fresenius and confirmed by the classification society DNV GL -- includes a mandatory polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test for detecting viruses and bacteria before traveling, as well as regular health checks, social distance and hygiene rules, medical care including test capacities on board and other measures.

Unfortunately, cruises in other AIDA destinations are currently not possible.

AIDA Cruises very much wants to enable all guests to enjoy their planned AIDA vacation this coming spring. Thanks to the company's travel program in the Canary Islands, all affected guests can be offered an attractive alternative with the seven-day cruises of AIDAperla.

This applies to guests who originally booked a cruise in the Mediterranean on AIDAblu, AIDAprima and AIDAmira with departure dates up to and including May 9, 2021.

The same applies to all guests who were originally scheduled to depart from Hamburg to Northern Europe or Norway with AIDAdiva, AIDAsol or AIDAluna up to and including April 28, 2021.

All guests whose voyage cannot take place as originally scheduled will be informed immediately. AIDA Cruises appreciates all guests affected for their understanding.

With the "AIDA promise," the cruise company offers guests more flexibility and security in planning. Generous booking options are part of AIDA's commitment to its guests, ranging from small down payments to free rebooking. The "AIDA promise" is included in the travel price for new bookings up to May 31, 2021 and applies to departures up to March. 31, 2022.

All cruises are carried out in compliance with AIDA's enhanced health and safety protocols, as well as applicable laws and regulations for infection protection. More information is available at

All trips from the AIDA cruise program can be booked through summer 2022 with a local travel professional, online at or through the AIDA customer center.
