Costa Cruises is to send Costa neoClassica to India for a short winter season of sailings from Mumbai and Male.
Costa neoClassica will depart Savona on 27 November 2016 for a 19-night cruise to Male, or a 26-night cruise to Mumbai. The ship will then offer seven-night voyages from Mumbai to Male, between December 2016 and March 2017, with visits to New Mangalore and Cochin. Cruises can also be combined into 14-night sailings, with additional stops in Colombo and Mormugao. Guests can also join the ship in Male for 7-night cruises to Mumbai.
The Indian cruise season will end on 18 March 2017, with a 27-night re-positioning cruise to Venice with visits to Oman and Israel before a passage through the Suez Canal, where the ship will then head for Greece and Italy.
The 52,926-ton Costa neoClassica was previously scheduled to sail out of Dubai during the winter.
