AIDA Cruises Will Not Call at Saint Petersburg

AIDA Cruises observes the dramatic events in Ukraine with great concern. The sympathy and thoughts of all members of the AIDA family, which unites employees from a wide range of nations, are with the people in the affected regions.

In the light of the current developments, AIDA Cruises will adjust the itinerary of its cruise ships AIDAdiva, AIDAmar, AIDAnova and AIDAvita in the summer season 2022 and will not call at Saint Petersburg (Russia). This port will be replaced by various attractive destinations such as Riga (Latvia), Copenhagen (Denmark), Oslo (Norway) or Visby (Gotland/Sweden).

All guests will be informed by AIDA Cruises about the adjustments in the itinerary of their voyages. The company thanks them for their understanding. The safety and well-being of the guests and crews have the highest priority.

AIDAdiva will call at the Latvian capital Riga or the Danish metropolis Copenhagen instead of Saint Petersburg on its seven-day Baltic Sea roundtrip from Warnemünde starting between May 14 and October 8, 2022. The voyage with departure date of May 7, 2022, will include a visit to Hamina in southern Finland.

For the seven-day round trips around the Baltic Sea with AIDAnova from Kiel with departure dates between May 14 and October 15, 2022, AIDA Cruises has developed attractive alternative routes in the Baltic Sea as well as to Norway and Denmark. On the Baltic Sea cruises guests can look forward to an extended stay in the Estonian capital Tallinn. Copenhagen/Kalundborg is also new on the itinerary.
Furthermore, AIDAnova is now setting course for Scandinavia on new voyages. In addition to a visit to the Danish capital Copenhagen and Kristiansand in Norway, AIDAnova’s guests can enjoy the very special flair of midsummer nights during a two-day stay in the Norwegian capital Oslo.

On its ten-day round trips around the Baltic Sea, AIDAmar will call at the port of Visby on the Swedish island of Gotland and the Latvian capital Riga instead of Saint Petersburg.

Against the background of current events, the first voyage of AIDAvita will depart on July 24, 2022. AIDA Cruises offers all AIDAvita guests whose voyage unfortunately cannot take place to rebook to a cruise from the diverse AIDA vacation program with one of the other ships of the AIDA fleet.

In light of the recent attacks by Russia in Ukraine, Princess Cruises is modifying itineraries on 24 cruises that call in St Petersburg, Russia with alternative ports.
