Aida Cruises largely abolishes compulsory vaccination

As one of the last cruise providers, Aida Cruises will no longer require proof of vaccination on most trips from September 17, 2022. However, due to official regulations, it may still be possible to only allow vaccinated people on board.

The obligation to vaccinate should be largely eliminated on journeys that are shorter than 16 days. However, the vaccination certificate is still required on all longer cruises and in transatlantic traffic. Children and young people are exempt from this unless there is a different regulation in a country of destination. Aida Cruises defines "fully vaccinated" as three stitches or two stitches and one recovery.

Another special feature are the cruises from Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Unvaccinated people must either be able to prove recovery or be able to show a negative PCR test. There are differences here: Abu Dhabi accepts young people up to the age of 16 and Dubai only up to a maximum of 12 years of age.

Aida Cruises continues to require negative rapid antigen test results upon embarkation. Alternatively, PCR results are also accepted. These can be no more than two days old. Wearing masks is only necessary if there are explicit requirements in the target areas. Only a few states currently require this. Officially, Aida continues to “recommend” covering and covering mouth and nose in the public areas of her ships.
