The cruise season in Estonia will this year be opened by the Estonian-flagged "Victoria", which is scheduled to berth at the port of Saaremaa with about one thousand Finnish tourists onboard on Tuesday, July 28.
The 193-meter Tallink vessel, which has a capacity of up to 2,500 passengers and 300 cars, was built in Finland 16 years ago,and underwent major repairs in a shipyard there last year.
Two cruise ships, the AidaAura and the AidaCara, are to call in at the cruise harbor in Tallinn, but without any passengers on board, on Monday and Tuesday, July 27 and 28 to refuel and replenish supplies.
The ships belong to the German company Aida Cruises, which owns a total of 13 vessels and has announced the resumption of cruises in August, following the coronavirus pandemic, with three ships: the AidaPerla, AidaMar and AidaBlu.
The cruises launched by Aida Cruises in August will be brief sea journeys starting in Germany.
