AIDA to make US West Coast debut with AIDAdiva

AIDAdiva will pass San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge in AIDA's US West Coast debut
AIDAdiva will be the first AIDA Cruises ship to visit the US West Coast when it heads to the region as part of its inaugural world cruise.

Bookings have opened for the 128-day voyage, the longest around the world sailing in AIDA’s history, which runs November 10, 2025 to March 18, 2026 and is priced starting at 17,495 euros per person. 

The cruise begins in Hamburg and brings passengers to four continents and 28 countries. There are more ports of call on offer than ever before, 53, with the Panama Canal, San Francisco in the US, and Japan among the highlights.  

In spring 2025, AIDAdiva will enter drydock as part of a major modernisation programme. 


For the first time, an AIDA world cruise will transport passengers to metropolitan regions in North America; the ship will pass the Statue of Liberty before docking in New York City. Never before have the East and West Coasts of the USA appeared on an AIDA world cruise itinerary.

The ship will also traverse the Panama Canal - another first for AIDAdiva.  


The vessel will head to Hawaii, where passengers will spend New Year's Eve in Honolulu, en route to Singapore.   

For the first time on any AIDA world cruise, Japan will be on the itinerary, with stops in Kyoto and Tokyo.

Busan, South Korea is also on the schedule. 

Indian Ocean

The final third of the itinerary sees the ship call at destinations in the Indian Ocean with the town of Hambantota, Sri Lanka, a new port of call for the ship. 

Mumbai in India also appears on this segment of the programme.


The voyage continues through the Arabian Sea and Jordan to Alexandria in Egypt. AIDAdiva will then head north across the Mediterranean with stops in Malta and Lisbon before the cruise draws to a close in Hamburg.
