The Canary Islands cruises will start with AIDAperla, followed by AIDAmar, which will begin with a Christmas voyage on Dec. 20.
Weekend embarkations from Gran Canaria
These weeklong sailings will embark Saturdays or Sundays from Gran Canaria.
This month the Spanish government adopted regulations for safe travel in the Canary Islands. AIDA said these are in line with its established hygiene and prevention measures that have been audited by SGS Institute Fresenius and verified by DNV-GL, among others.
Measures include COVID 19 testing before the voyage, secure arrival and departure, medical care, distance regulations and increased disinfection measures on board, as well as guided shore excursions.
Arabian Gulf and Western Mediterranean no-go
Due to the current situation in the UAE, Spain (except the Canary Islands) and France, AIDA's schedule in the Arabian Gulf and the Western Mediterranean are impacted. All cruises on AIDAstella and AIDAprima that were planned between Dec. 1 and Jan. 26 are canceled.
