Carnival's AIDA Cruises expands fall and winter programme
Cruise giant Carnival announced on Thursday that AIDA Cruises was expanding its vacation programme further, with new cruises during the fall and winter season of 2021 to 2022.
The FTSE 250 company said AIDAprima would expand its season in Hamburg, calling at various destinations in western Europe from 30 October to next April.
After the end of the Greece season, it added that AIDAblu would be deployed in the Canary Islands from November until the end of December.
At the beginning of 2022, AIDAblu would set course for the Mediterranean, offering seven-day cruises from Palma de Mallorca in January and February.
From the end of February, Civitavecchia would be the start and destination port for voyages to a number of destinations in Italy, followed by roundtrips from Corfu through the archipelago of ancient Greece, starting in April.
Carnival said AIDA would announce its complete holiday programme for the fall and winter season shortly.
“Due to the new travel offers and ongoing travel restrictions in several regions of the world, some cruises with AIDAmira, AIDAvita, AIDAdiva, AIDAnova, AIDAluna, AIDAbella, AIDAaura, AIDAprima and AIDAblu between August and April cannot take place as originally planned or have to be adjusted,” the company added.
“Guests who were booked on impacted cruises and their travel advisors are being notified.”
At 1042 BST, shares in Carnival were up 3.7% at 1,519.6p.
