start date for voyages from October 2016 to October 2017, preview through April
AIDA Cruises is releasing its “
a new way” catalog. It includes voyages scheduled from October 2016 to October
2017 and even a sneak peek of selected itineraries through April 2018. Bookings
can be made starting on March 23, 2016.
The schedule contains fascinating
new Nordic, Mediterranean, and Asian cruises, and offers the greatest variety
of vacation options on 12 ships to over 190 destinations in 60 countries on
five continents. Voyages lasting from 3 to up to 43 days offer the perfect
getaway from everyday life.
options: northern lights and the Azores Islands
As a new and
exclusive highlight in Winter 2016/2017, the schedule includes four dates for
cruises to wintry Norway. These voyages from Hamburg take guests to the land of
the northern lights and a unique winter landscape in the fjords.
An entirely new
itinerary combines the Canary Islands and the Azores Islands. Hot volcanoes,
historic towns, crater lakes as smooth as glass, and miles of hydrangea hedges
– the Azores are an unusual destination far away from mass tourism. AIDAcara
stops in Faial, Terceira, and São Miguel.
In addition to the
new destinations, the schedule also includes the ever-popular Caribbean and
Florida destinations with five different itineraries, as well as cruises to the
Orient and as far as India.
AIDAbella travels the
exotic world of Southeast Asia, and in the spring of 2017, it heads for its new
home port of Shanghai on an unforgettable farewell
voyage. The ship will then delight future Chinese guests in the Far East. The
“Ciao Bella” cruise will be from March 20 to April 3, 2017, departing Bangkok
bound for fascinating Asian destinations such as Hong Kong, Hainan and Taipeh,
the Vietnamese Hue/Đà
and Ishigaki in Japan.
AIDAperla: the new pearl of the Mediterranean
This sister ship of
AIDAprima currently under construction will set sail from Palma de Mallorca on
7-day cruises year round. Starting in summer 2017, it will leave the Majorcan capital
every Saturday for Corsica, Rome, Florence, and Barcelona. This voyage can also
be started in Barcelona.
As of July 1, 2016,
guests can make non-binding reservations for departures with AIDAperla.
Summertime with AIDA: Nordic icebergs and Mediterranean island
From fascinating far
northern landscapes to cultural treasures in the Baltics and cruises through
the Mediterranean archipelago – the diversity of the summer 2017 schedule is
astounding. European cities and untouched landscapes provide an exciting
schedule of contrasts for explorers.
The new AIDAcara voyages to
Iceland and Greenland are an absolute highlight of the Northern Europe 2017
season. The 21-day round-trip cruise is offered on three different dates
from/to Hamburg. It will visit Ilulissat and Nuuk on the the west coast of
Greenland and Qaqortoq on the southern coast. Passing through the more than 100
km long Prince Christian Sound and a stopover in Disco Bay are also on the
schedule. The ship will make island stops in the capital city of Reykjavik as
well as Akureyri and Seydisfjördur.
Amazement is the right keyword for the new “Spain & Portugal” itinerary.
Whether it’s an excursion to Seville or Lisbon by night – the explorer’s
paradise for our guests knows no bounds. The new “Italian and Mediterranean
Islands” itinerary includes a total of six Mediterranean islands as well as new
destinations such as Salerno and Calabria.
