Regional lines in Germany, Italy set to relaunch Carnival

July 14, 2020 Headline News No Comments Email Email

Carnival Corporation intends to dispose of 13 ships across its global cruise fleet, even as cruising for different European nationalities is starting to emerge among the company’s nine cruise brands. According to Cruise Critic, the announcement came during the company’s second quarter earnings results call. While Carnival is best known for brands including Holland America and P&O Australia, it also owns the Germany-language cruise line AIDA as well as Costa in Italy. Short cruises for Germans are resuming on AIDA in August. Carnival Corporation president and CEO Arnold Donald said that regional lines like AIDA were key to the corporation’s overall restart plans, hinting that cruises in Italy would likely be the next to restart. He also noted that AIDA received over 1,000 bookings for its recently-announced August sailings in a single day alone, nearly selling out the first voyage: a three-day cruise to nowhere departing August 5, 2020 aboard AIDAperla. “There’s a lot of pent up demand,” said Donald.
