Costa Cruises will soon offer expanded opportunities for travelers who want to discover new adventures in various regions of China that will now be easier (and more fun) to explore.
The cruise line recently announced that it will offer fresh cruise options in that region starting in April. The new cruises will depart from Costa’s homeport in Fujian province’s Xiamen port. Situated near the Guangdong province, this location offers convenient access for residents and travelers arriving from all over the area.
As the first international cruise company to enter the Asia Pacific in 2006, Costa Cruises has established itself as one of the respected leaders in this market, and these new offerings are a testament to the company’s continued dedication to serving guests in this region.
There will be three additional cruise itineraries, each of which will span six days and five nights. The routes offer travelers the choice of locales from among the most popular sites in the area, including Jeju, Sasebo, Yaeyama Islands, and Okinawa. This is a great option for those travelers who yearn for an exciting ocean adventure, but also want to discover and explore areas that are a bit off the beaten path, and won’t be as overrun with large crowds. It would also appeal to those globetrotters who love the region but seek cruise alternatives to consider that they haven’t done already.
These trips will all include a cruise aboard the Costa Victoria, which is almost an exotic destination of its own. This isn’t your typical cruise ship, as will become immediately obvious. The Costa Victoria offers the perfect combination of luxury and comfort. This newly refurbished ship creates the ultimate environment of elegance and sophistication, yet at the same time is still a place where you can relax and feel at home.
