After Hurricane Florence forced the AIDA cruise ship to put its passengers on a 5-day hiatus, it resumed operations. The crew announced that they would resume their normal schedule of tours and activities “as soon as possible.”
AIDA has resumed the guests operations after the 10th AIDA Cruise Ship was hit by a fire on board. The company has also released a statement about the incident.
This week, the eleventh cruise ship in the AIDA fleet set off from Hamburg. From her homeport in Northern Germany, the AIDAnova is sailing a joyous winter season.
The AIDAnova was the first cruise ship to run entirely on low-emission LNG fuel, and it even got a German government award for its ecologically friendly design.
The AIDAnova is the tenth AIDA ship to re-enter service.
AIDAnova landed in the port of Hamburg, Germany, on December 13 to begin a series of five holiday cruises. The flagship of the AIDA fleet made its maiden visit to the northern German city, with the crew and ship delivering a love message of light writing out “We HH.”

The cruise operator has gone to great lengths to ensure that the ship is turned into a winter paradise that both young and old can appreciate. Throughout the ship, there are gigantic Christmas light displays and festively adorned trees. Guests will also get the chance to make delicious cookies and Christmas chocolates with Andrea Schirmaier-Huber, a well-known German TV chef.

AIDA has a range of winter-themed entertainment and activities planned, including the popular format ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire,’ as well as Magical Christmas presentations performed by the ship’s singers and dancers.
Sailing to Northern and Southern Europe with AIDAnova
The first of two Christmas journeys for AIDAnova will depart from Hamburg today, December 14, for Kristiansand and Oslo, and will return on December 19. On December 22, the ship will set sail towards the Canary Islands in a southerly direction.
This 17-day transit cruise will take passengers to either Lisbon or Las Palmas, with stops in Rotterdam, Bruges, La Coruna, and various Canary Islands ports along the route. The voyage’s high point will be on December 31, when the ship will be docked near Madeira for one of the most magnificent fireworks displays in the world.

It was the first of its kind.
When she debuted in 2018, the 183,900 gross ton AIDAnova was the first of the much-discussed Excellence class of ships. She established the standard for Carnival Corporation by being powered entirely by low-emission LNG fuel. Carnival Cruise Line’s Mardi Gras, P&O Iona, and Costa Smeralda are among her sister ships.
There are 17 restaurants and 23 bars aboard, as well as a double water slide and a climbing garden, the Beach Club, the Theatrium with a 360° stage, and the huge Body & Soul Organic Spa for the 5,400 passengers.
Mandatory vaccination and extra COVID-19 testing, monthly health checks, and stringent health and safety requirements are all applied aboard AIDAnova and the other AIDA ships for all voyages.
Regardless of the weather, Hamburg is gearing up for a bustling winter cruise season. AIDAprima and AIDAsol, in addition to AIDAnova, will depart from the city. Hapag Lloyd, MSC, Hurtigruten, Phoenix Reisen, and Cunard are among the cruise lines that will stop in Hamburg or depart from here.
