AIDAnova’s pre-inaugural cruises cancelled

AIDA Cruises, the German contemporary market unit in the Carnival Corporation & plc group, said it has decided to cancel the short inaugural cruises that had been planned to take place before the ship’s maiden voyage.

These would have run between 15 November and 02 December, but the company said in a statement it wanted to ensure that e.g. many new product innovations that will be introduced with the 184,000 gross ton LNG powered ship would meet the company’s standards when the first passengers embark the ship.

The maiden voyage of AIDAnova, which was built by Meyer Werft in Papenburg in Germany, is expected to proceed as scheduled, with departure from Hamburg on 02 December, to the Canary Islands.
