AIDA Cruises has updated its health and safety cruise ship protocols in winter 2021/2022.
According to a social media post, self-service in the buffet restaurants will return, as well as an extension of the ships’ wellness services.
In addition, more individual shore excursions will be offered.
“Since we are still dependent on the administrative requirements in the destinations, please understand that we can’t provide shore excursion information for specific voyages at this point,” AIDA said, adding that booked guests will be sent information regarding their specific cruises.
AIDA has also announced that the winter 2021/2022 Caribbean and Asian cruises will only be available to fully vaccinated guests. Therefore, children under the age of 12 for whom no vaccine is available, cannot sail on these voyages.
In addition, those who can prove that they have recovered from the coronavirus only need one vaccination dose to sail.
For the cruises in the Mediterranean, Northern Europe and the Canary Islands, all persons from 12 years old must be fully vaccinated against coronavirus.
However, children under that age will be able to sail just with a negative coronavirus test result.
