From Hamburg to the world with AIDA Cruises. In winter 2022/2023, escape the cold at home without flying and experience sunny holiday paradises on board AIDA
With a varied AIDA cruise program, guests can go on a great journey from/to Hamburg this winter. Numerous cruises start and end in the Hanseatic city, the gateway to the world.
From 26 October 2022, AIDAsol and her guests will call at 43 ports in 20 different countries on four continents, pass the International Date Line and cross the equator twice. Guests can look forward to dream destinations such as Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Buenos Aires (Argentina), Ushuaia and Chile.
From here, the cruise continues west via Tahiti, Bora Bora, Tonga, Fiji (Christmas), Vanuatu, New Caledonia and Australia to Mauritius. The guests welcome the New Year in front of the magical skyline of Sydney. Via South Africa, Namibia, Tenerife, Madeira, the ship heads back to Hamburg via Lisbon, where the cruise ends on 20 February 2023.
But it is not only the route that promises a firework of impressions, the lovingly designed on-board program also provides many highlights: On board, guest artists such as bestselling author Elisabeth Herrmann or crime writer Viola Möbius offer exciting entertainment and workshops. Destination experts provide expert insights into the country and its people.
Tanja Krodel, the yoga and Pilates instructor popular with celebrities, will be on hand for some sporting action. You can shake a leg to the music of Terrel Woodbury, Wayne Morris, Sarah Barelly, known from “The Voice of Germany”, and many more. AIDA gourmet patrons Felicitas Then, Franz Schned and Stefan Marquard will spoil guests with culinary delights.
The AIDA World Cruise 2022/2023 can also be booked in shorter, but equally exciting highlight legs.
Those who want to forego flights completely, but not the sun, will find what they are looking for on the “Great Winter Break” itinerary with AIDAbella: From 12 November to 8 December 2022, it’s 26 days from/to Hamburg to the Canary Islands.
In keeping with the World Cup, the United Freestylers are on board and offer an entertaining programme in their trick camps. For even more “good weather guaranteed”, the subsequent 43-day voyage from 8 December 2022 to 20 January 2023 from Hamburg to the Caribbean and back is suitable. Guests on this voyage can look forward to Christmas and New Year on a white Caribbean beach under palm trees. On both routes, AIDA gourmet godfather Franz Schned will be on board at the end of each voyage to create an unforgettable farewell menu for the guests.
Hyggelig Nordland and Christmas Metropolises from your own doorstep
AIDAbella is offering three very special “Autumnal Northern Lights” cruises from/to Hamburg in October 2022 as part of the AIDA Selection program. From October to the end of March, Northern Norway offers the best conditions for seeing the Northern Lights. The many islands, deep fjords and steep mountains of this impressive landscape provide the perfect backdrop.
In 13 days, from 2 to 15 October 2022, you will travel along the Norwegian coast via Narvik, Tromso to Alta in Northern Norway and back again via Leknes, Trondheim and Alesund. Two further 14-day Norway cruises will depart on 15 and 29 October 2022 respectively. Those looking for a winter adventure in the far north will find what they are looking for on the Selection voyages with AIDAsol to Norway from February to April 2023.
From Hamburg, AIDAsol will take you to the land of the polar lights and a unique winter landscape. For those who like it Christmassy in winter, AIDAprima offers the best time out from/at your own doorstep.
In the 2022/2023 winter season, AIDAprima will be on the Metropolitan Tour from Hamburg. Whether it’s Christmas shopping in London, Paris and Amsterdam or a visit to the Advent markets of Bruges or Honfleur – a festive mood is ensured just as much on shore leave as on board.
The festive voyages to Norway over Christmas and New Year’s Eve are a very special highlight: Guests on board AIDAprima will experience New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day in Oslo. Unique to the German cruise market, the floating ice rink returns on board AIDAprima.
From 27 November 2022 to 25 February 2023, guests will have the opportunity to strap on their skates on the high seas and enjoy 200 m² of ice hockey, curling, ice disco for young and old, or simply spin laps. There is a wide range of skating aids for beginners. Around the ice rink, hearty mulled wine and culinary treats are served for the festivities.
