First cruise now Dec. 19 instead of Dec. 2
The first cruise will now embark Dec. 19 from Tenerife.
'It just takes some time to prepare the ship for the first guests,' Meyer said on Friday.
It was the second delivery delay for the innovative, 184,000gt AIDA Cruises vessel. Earlier, preview cruises between Nov. 15 and Dec. 2 were canceled, and AIDAnova had been expected to sail its maiden voyage Dec. 2 from Hamburg to the Canary Islands.
Meyer Werft said sea trials would start tonight from Eemshaven.
