Costa Cruises sails to Gulf of Thailand for the first time
Thailand, January 16, 2017

Costa Cruises has deployed Costa Victoria to Laem Chabang (Bangkok) on January 11, officially marking the cruise line’s expansion into the Gulf of Thailand.


Until January 25, 2017, Costa Victoria will be going on three four-night sailings to destinations such as Sihanoukville in Cambodia, Phu Quoc in Vietnam and Koh Samui in Thailand.

“Costa Asia is excited to expand into Thailand by launching its first homeport cruises from Laem Chabang (Bangkok), the country’s largest port. Guests based in Thailand can now embark and disembark from right at their doorstep for short cruises. We believe in the long-term potential of Thailand as a sourcing and destination market,” said Buhdy Bok, president of Costa Group Asia.


The 75,200-tonne Costa Victoria was refurbished in 2013 and has the capacity for 2,394 guests. Facilities onboard include five restaurants, 10 bars, three swimming pools, a fitness centre and a solarium.
