Costa Neo Classica
The Costa Classica will become the Costa neoClassica after a major refit in December 2014. This promises to make this already beautiful cruise ship spectacular. The ship will join the neoRomantica and the neoRiviera, as part of the Costa Cruise Neo collection of cruise ships. These ships are smaller in proportion enabling them to visit ports that are totally inaccessible by most of the larger liners today. The unique destinations visited provide passengers access to view the stunning unspoiled natural habitat of the ports and to get a taste of the real culture and traditions.
Costa cruises are the largest cruise ship company in Europe and with their wealth of experience in meeting passenger needs, the Costa neoClassica is expected to provide it all. Exciting itineraries, sumptuous comfort and dazzling entertainment.
The ‘slow cruising’ offered on the neo ships affords passengers so much more freedom. Longer calls in each port giving you the opportunity to explore the destinations completely, both through the daytime and then to sample the nightlife of an evening.
Cabins on board will provide passengers with everything they need for a comfortable and relaxing holiday. There will be 654 cabins, of these ten will be the luxurious ‘Suites’ with private balconies.
Cuisine on board will reflect the areas visited. Traditional and local recipes will be offered, alongside the usual culinary delights that are served on board.
There will be two swimming pools and four Jacuzzis. The Caracella Spa will provide a state of the art gymnasium, treatment rooms, a sauna and Turkish bath.
Entertainment promises to be every bit as spectacular as the ship itself. The two storey Colosseo Theatre will provide explosive performances and captivating acts. The seven themed bars will all provide an oasis for a relaxing drink and the disco on board will be open late. There will be a Casino for those who like a flutter, this will have all the regular tables along with slot machines.
Excursions are planned in great detail and they will be arranged purposely in small groups, with a maximum of 25 people. This tends to make these much more sociable and affable occasions, where new found friends can be made. There will be plenty of themed excursions including food and wine tastings.
Families will delight in a cruise aboard the neoClassica. The children’s Squok Club will keep the little ones entertained, giving parents a much needed reprieve.
The itineraries promise to be exciting, with the first cruise sailing from Egypt to the ‘Spice Islands’. The ship will leave Savona on the 18th December and the cruise will last for 26 days. After taking in Israel, Jerusalem and Jordan it will then head for Egypt. From here it will continue to Oman, the Seychelles, Madagascar, Reunion and then on to the breath-taking island of Mauritius.
After this first voyage the Costa neoClassica will offer: Indian Ocean Cruises, Mediterranean Cruises and Greek Islands Cruises to name but a few that are planned.
The neoClassica with its fabulous itineraries and more intimate atmosphere will be a cruise ship that suits, families, couples and singles alike.
