September 9, 2022 - For more than two years, the COVID-19 virus has caused massive strains on travel. The easing of the COVID-19 situation that has been to be achieved in the past few weeks and months has made travel significantly easier in large parts of the world. Governments are lifting restrictions and cruise lines are responding with gradual adjustments to their protocols. From September 17, 2022, AIDA Cruises will no longer require proof of vaccination against COVID-19.
The regulations that apply from September 17 apply primarily to trips that last less than 16 days. For trips longer than 16 days and transatlantic cruises, however, full vaccination protection for guests aged 18 and over is essential. Whoever has received three individual vaccinations or, as a recovered person, two individual vaccinations is considered to be fully vaccinated. Children and young people under the age of 18 generally do not need vaccinations on AIDA ships.

For the upcoming Orient cruises in winter, unvaccinated guests require either a certified PCR test or certified proof of convalescence. The Emirates proceed differently. At the airport in Abu Dhabi Children under the age of 16 are exempt from the above requirements. Upon entry into Dubai Other regulations apply: Children under the age of 12 are exempt from the proof.
The shipping company emphasizes: A prerequisite for every AIDA trip is a certified negative antigen test for all guests aged 3 and over. The antigen test must be carried out at the earliest two days before check-in at the port. The recommendation to wear a medical mouth and nose protective mask still applies in the interior of the ships. In addition, the cruise company recommends that its guests have full vaccination protection for all trips.
