AIDA Announces 2016-2017 Deployment

AIDA Cruises has announced deployment from March 2016 to April 2017, with a further look ahead to 2017.

The new 276-page brochure includes over 90 cruises to over 180 ports.

The 2016 summer program includes the first voyages with the new flagship AIDAprima. Starting on April 30, the cruise ship will depart from Hamburg weekly on its “metropolitan” cruises. AThe IDAprima is the first ship that will offer cruises leaving from Germany year round.

In addition to AIDAprima, five more AIDA ships will be leaving from Hamburg, Kiel, and Warnemünde on cruises to the Baltic Sea, Norway’’s fjords, the British Islands, and the Arctic Circle.

On the new route “Norway with Lofoten and North Cape” with AIDAvita guests can explore new territory at three destinations: in Bodø north of the Arctic Circle, in Haugesund in Norway, and in Århus in Denmark.

In August, Fishguard in Wales and the English city of Newcastle will be added to the “Great Britain & Ireland” itinerary. Bornholm will be added to the Baltic Sea cruises.

For the first time, cruises to the Canary Islands with their year-round mild temperatures can be booked in summer on AIDA. New routes combine the Canary Islands and the Azores.

More cruise highlights in summer 2016 include new destinations in the Mediterranean, such as  Nice, Ibiza, La Spezia, Propriano in Corsica, and Souda Bay in Crete. Five AIDA ships with 11 routes offer variety from the Canary to the Balearic Islands, the Adriatic and the Aegean Sea.

For winter, AIDA will head to northern Norway on 14 day sailings from Hamburg.

Warmer cruises can be found in Canary Islands, the Orient, India – these can also be booked in combination – and exotic islands in the Caribbean.

On the Canary Islands, El Hierro will be a destination for AIDA for the first time while St. Thomas will be a new stop in the Caribbean as well as Costa Maya in Mexico.

AIDA also gave a glimpse into its 2017 summer program, with cruises including “Highlights in the Arctic Circle,” “Norway with Lofoten and North Cape,” or “Norway’s fjords.”
