AIDA Cruises Extends Pause in Operations until July 31, 2020
ROSTOCK, Germany, May 27, 2020 -- AIDA Cruises appreciates the current
international efforts to normalize tourism and naturally work intensively on
detailed plans regarding the speedy restart of AIDA cruises. In doing so, AIDA
considers the imminent re-openings of the European tourist traffic. The
protection of guests and crewmembers' health are thereby AIDA's top priority at
any time. For this purpose, AIDA is in close coordination with the different
national and international authorities and health organizations.
In many of AIDA's frequently visited destinations, however, regulations for
international tourism are still being adjusted and the specific conditions for
a restart have not been fully clarified yet. In order to give guests the
necessary planning security for their vacation, AIDA unfortunately has to
extend the temporary break of the AIDA travel season until the end of July
All cruises up to and including July 31, 2020, cannot take place as planned.
All guests having booked a cruise with AIDA during this period will be
informed. Bookings will be processed chronologically according to departure
AIDA very much wants guests to enjoy their long-awaited AIDA holidays at a
later date. To this end, AIDA will reimburse all guests whose cruises have been
cancelled for the payments previously made to AIDA in the form of a travel
credit. AIDA thanks all guests for their confidence by offering them a bonus of
10% on top of the payment already made. The credit can be used for bookings
until December 31, 2021, for the complete range of AIDA trips on offer. The
AIDA travel credit is also redeemable for MyAIDA services such as excursions,
culinary offers and wellness treatments or on-board credit.
AIDA will reimburse guests who do not wish to use their travel credit including
the 10% bonus upon request in the amount of the payment already made.
In order to support travel agencies in these challenging times, AIDA will pay
out a liquidity advance. This is 10% of the credit value and will be
transferred to the sales partner as soon as AIDA has issued the travel credit
for the joint customer.
Guests can find detailed information on the travel credit on www.aida.de and
sales partners on the AIDA Expinet website.
All press inquiries are to be forwarded immediately to the Communication Team.
