Lack of Water Delayed AIDAnova

AIDAnova's 7am departure from the Meyer yard in Papenburg was delayed today due to lack of water in the river. The yard waited for the next tide, about twelve hours later, and they were rewarded with deeper water, and the ship slowly backed out of the yard and through the barrier into the river.

We have a photo of the ship leaving the dock below, but by the time it was passing the barrier, it was dark already. It made relatively good time overnight and by 6:30am (still in darkness), it was at Leer.

Details appeared in the October 8 issue of Cruise News Daily.
