There are many good reasons to plan the 2024/2025 winter vacation with AIDA right now. 380 to be exact, because so many new travel dates are bookable as of now.
The sun destinations range from the Caribbean to the Far East and the Canary Islands. The cultural treasures of the Mediterranean or the natural beauties in the far north are also on the route program. When booking by April 30, 2024, guests can secure the cabin of their choice plus a hefty early-booker-plus discount.
Aruba, Jamaica… Travel to dream and dive away
Three AIDA ships will be stationed in the sunny dream destination of the Caribbean. The voyages of AIDAbella and AIDAluna depart from La Romana, Montego Bay or Fort-de-France on Martinique and sail on a wide variety of routes to the most beautiful Caribbean islands, Mexico and Central America. AIDAluna takes its guests to the new port of Santa Marta in Colombia on every second Central American voyage. AIDAperla offers voyages to the ABC Islands from La Romana or Barbados, among others.
All winter escapees can make a note of two dates with AIDAmar: In December and January, it goes to the “Great Winter Break Caribbean” from Hamburg and back – quite comfortably and without a flight. AIDAmar spends New Year’s Eve on Curacao.
One Night in Bangkok… Experience Asia intensively
Fascinating cultures, spectacular biodiversity and dream beaches in picture-perfect bays await guests on AIDAstella’s four different itineraries. From Bangkok/Laem Chabang, for example, 14- and 21-day cruises take guests to Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong, the Philippines and Vietnam. The highlight: guests spend the turn of the year on the Christmas and New Year’s Eve cruise in Singapore!
Thousand and One Nights… Arabian Gulf between desert and skyscrapers
AIDAprima will travel to the Orient on two different routes from Dubai or Abu Dhabi. They lead to Muscat (Oman) and Doha (Qatar) or to the Kingdom of Bahrain and Sir Bani Yas. This wonderful beach destination offers numerous opportunities for relaxation after visiting the mega-cities: snorkeling, kayaking or relaxing on the beach. The 7-day trips can also be booked combined as 14-days.
Vamos a la Playa… To the volcanic islands in the Atlantic
Sunny beaches, wildly romantic volcanic landscapes, unique nature. The many facets of the Canary Islands make them one of the most popular vacation destinations in winter. AIDAcosma will offer cruises around the Canaries and to Madeira from November 2024 to April 2025. The 7-day cruises depart either from Gran Canaria or Tenerife.
AIDAblu offers two different 7-day Canary Islands routes from Gran Canaria, one of which scores points with a stop on the enchanting island of La Gomera and the other with a visit to the flower island of Madeira. There is a special play of colors in the sky at the turn of the year off Funchal, where guests can experience one of the most spectacular fireworks displays live and from the front row. In addition to the 7-day cruises, guests can also opt for the 9-, 12- or 14-day combinations.
Who looks for the completely large Kanaren time-out, can go with AIDAmar at the beginning and at the end of the winter season on “large winter break” starting from/ to Hamburg.
Off to the South… Eastern and Western Mediterranean Routes
The winter program is rounded off with voyages in the Mediterranean. AIDAdiva departs from Palma for 9- or 12-day cruises to Spain, Portugal, and the Canary Islands, or in seven days from Rome (Civitavecchia) to Italy and Malta.
On new 14-day voyages in the eastern Mediterranean with AIDAstella, guests visit the Greek islands, Cyprus, and Egypt. From Antalya, AIDAblu offers two new 7-day voyages. One route takes guests to Rhodes, Mykonos, Izmir, and fascinating Istanbul. The other route features Egypt (Port Said), Cyprus, Haifa, and Rhodes.
For Easter 2025, AIDAprima has wonderful voyages from Palma or Barcelona to Málaga, Cadiz and Cartagena. Longer layovers allow guests to experience the famous Semana Santa, the Holy Week with numerous processions. Easter Sunday the ship lies in Alicante. The trip can be booked as a 7- or 14-day variant.
Nordic by Nature… Northern Europe Routes
AIDAnova will spend the winter in Nordic climes and will be a guest on the Elbe from November 2024 to April 2025: From Hamburg, the program will alternate between voyages to the major cities and to Norway & Denmark. Whether Christmas shopping in London, Paris and Amsterdam or a visit to the Advent markets of Copenhagen or Oslo – a festive mood is ensured on shore leave as well as on board. The festive cruises are a very special highlight: Guests on board AIDAnova experience New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day in Copenhagen. The 7-day voyages can be wonderfully combined into a two-week break.
AIDAsol will embark on a world cruise in October 2024. From October 27, 2024, the ship will set course for 41 ports in 17 countries on four continents and, as a highlight, six destinations on New Zealand.
