Carnival’s AIDA Cruises cancels cruises after restart as COVID-19 surges in Germany

Carnival Corp.’s AIDA Cruises, the cruise giant’s second line to restart operations in Europe, has announced it will once again suspend operations temporarily and cancel cruises for the month of November amid the COVID-19 pandemic that is seeing a surge in Europe, where the German line is based.

“As a result of Germany implementing far-reaching measures to contain the coronavirus pandemic, AIDA Cruises today announced it will temporarily pause its cruises for November, cancelling all voyages planned between Oct. 31 and Nov. 30,” AIDA said in a release provided by Roger Frizzell, spokesperson for Carnival Corp.

Since its restart on Oct. 17, no cases of COVID-19 have emerged among passengers or crew on board, who are tested before embarking. “I don’t believe there were any positive tests prior to boarding that resulted in a denied boarding,” Frizzell told USA TODAY Thursday.
