Aida Cruises, which is a German-based cruise line, has made the decision to suspend all cruises to the United States and Canada due to travel bans and restrictions in both countries. The cruise line also wants to provide necessary planning security for guests booking vacations which include calls to or from the North American countries.

Canada currently has a ban in place for all cruise ships which have a passenger capacity of over 100 through October 31, 2020. This has already resulted in a number of major cruise lines being forced to extend their suspensions in the country.

Similarly, the United States has also not made it easy for cruise lines wanting to return to service. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) currently has a “No-Sail” order in place and until that is lifted cruise ships won’t be able to begin service, either at embarkation ports or ports of call in U.S. waters.

New procedures are being developed with different national and international authorities and health agencies. These plans are for when service resumes in Europe once the current Aida suspension on operations ends on July 31, with the first ships to start departing from August 1, 2020.

Other Carnival-owned brands have also announced changes for when their cruise ships set sail, and cruise ship bans from Canada and Australia are impacting the return to service for them as well as other lines.
