Costa Cruises Adds Small Ship To Fleet

Italy’s Costa Cruises has added a new small ship to its fleet of award-winning cruise ships. The line welcomed the 927-passenger Costa Voyager, which was transferred from sister line Iberocruceros. The intimate 24,400-GRT vessel is currently being refurbished in Genoa, with her exterior, cabins and public areas customized according to Costa Cruises’ standards, before returning to service and operating a series of new Red Sea cruises later this month.


416 cabins, including 16 panoramic suites and 12 suites with private balconies, offer comfort and luxury to cruisers, while dining is catered for at 3 restaurants and 4 lounges/bars. A theatre, wellness centre with gym, spa treatment rooms, sauna and Turkish bath, swimming pool, nightclub and shopping arcade provide ample leisure options for guests, while the Squok Club’s range of activities and games keep younger cruisers occupied.


Costa Voyager’s first cruise is scheduled to be a 15-day voyage departing Savona on 20 November 2011 for the Egyptian resort of Sharm el Sheikh. She will then conduct week-long sailings in the Red Sea, with calls to Eilat, Aqaba, Safaga and Sokhna. A variety of shore excursions, including visits to a natural oasis in the Negev Desert, the fortress of Masada, Dead Sea, Petra, Luxor and the Valley of the Kings, Hurghada and the island of Mahamya, offer the opportunity to experience the region’s culture, history and natural landscape.


With the addition of the Costa Voyager, Costa Cruises now operates 16 ships sailing under the Italian flag around the world. The line is also in the midst of a radical refit of the Costa Romantica, which will return to the fleet in mid-February 2012 as the Costa neoRomantica.
