AIDA Cruises has adjusted its 2016 deployment in Europe, opting to pull the AIDAstella from the Eastern Mediterranean, citing recent events in Turkey.

The 2013-built AIDAstella will now be re-deployed to the Western Mediterranean, and will take over the routes of the AIDAaura and sail from Palma de Mallorca in Spain.

The week-long program will see the ship make transit calls at Corisca, Cannes, overnight in Barcelona and also visit Ibiza.

The AIDAaura will re-deploy to Northern Europe sailing from a German homeport, with its itinerary program to be announced shortly.

The AIDAstella was originally scheduled on a week-long cruise program for the summer, turning around in Antalya (Turkey) with calls in Limassol, Haifa, Santorini and Marmaris.
