AIDAnova: Ems-transfer is scheduled
Ship transfers on the Ems have been special events for years. Spectators arrive from all over Germany to be close to the dike when a new ship passes the river.
On October 8, 2018, AIDAnova will leave the Meyer shipyard in Papenburg and be transferred to Eemshaven (Netherlands). The arrival in Eemshaven is scheduled for the morning of Tuesday, October 9.
On Monday at around 07:00 am, it is time to "cast off". At 8:00 am, AIDAnova passes the dock gate in Papenburg. At about 2:30 pm, AIDAnova passes the Friesen-bridge near Weener followed by the Jann-Berghaus-bridge in Leer at around 7:00 pm. After the passage of the Ems barrier Gandersum around 1:00 am, the ship is expected to arrive in Emden at 02:30 am and moor in Eemshaven at 09:00 am.
For the numerous visitors who want to watch the spectacular crossing from the dikes along the Ems, AIDA Cruises distributes pretzels, croissants, coffee and tea at the Meyer shipyard, at the Friesen-bridge and at the Jann-Berghaus-bridge.
All information on the schedule are subject to the wind and weather conditions and the water levels and thus without guarantee. Time shifts are possible at short notice.
In its debut season, AIDAnova will be traveling to the Canary islands and Madeira from mid-December 2018 on seven-day cruises.
