Costa neoRomantica sails into Asia
Hong Kong, April 11, 2017

From April 26 to October 8, Costa Cruises will base its newly restyled Costa neoRomantica ship in Asia to offer new itineraries covering destinations in Japan, South Korea and Russia.


Having recently underwent a HK$900 million (US$155.80 million) restyling, the 1,800-pax neoRomantica will set sail on 5D4N to 8D7N journeys to Sokcho and Busan in South Korea, Vladivostok in Russia, and Hakodate, Aomori, Sakata, Niigata, Kanazawa, Maizuru and Sakaiminato in Japan.

The deployment of Costa neoRomantica comes as part of Costa Asia’s continuing investment strategy in the region. Earlier deployments to Asia include Costa Victoria in 2012, followed by Costa Atlantica (2013), Costa Serena (2015) and Costa Fortuna (2016).


“The deployment of the fifth Costa ship in Asia will reinforce our leading position in Asia and allow us to continue to significantly grow the Asian cruise market in the next decade, (as well as provide) a further boost for Asia to become one of the most prominent markets in the world,” said Costa Group Asia president Buhdy Bok.
