Costa Cruises has announced it is sending Costa Victoria to Europe in 2018, as well as opening up Asia itineraries to European and US passengers.
The Italian company will also offer several new cruises to some of the most appealing destinations in Thailand, Malaysia and Cambodia onboard Costa Victoria, and in Japan, Taiwan and South Korea on Costa neoRomantica.
“Our new Asian itineraries are the result of a continuous dialogue with our guests and trade
partners,” said Massimo Brancaleoni, SVP of Worldwide Sales for Costa Cruises. “We perceived an interest for new exotic destinations and we quickly answered to satisfy this desire. We are
confident that these new options will even further enrich and diversify our selection of winter
cruises, and that our past guests and those new to cruising will find very appealing when planning upcoming holidays.”
From 6 January 2018 to 17 February 2018, Costa Victoria will depart every Saturday from Singapore to offer two different seven-day itineraries, which can be also combined into a single two-week cruise.
The first itinerary will include the stunning island of Koh Samui, with some of the most famous beaches in Thailand; an overnight in Bangkok, and a call at Sihanoukville in Cambodia. The second itinerary will call at Kuala Lumpur, and the island of Langkawi in Malaysia; an overnight stay in Phuket, Thailand; followed by Penang and Malacca in Malaysia.

The ship is then expected to offer seven-night cruises from Savona.
