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 
2020. 
 
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 
date. 
 
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.
