Costa Cruises, Europe’s number one cruise company, has announced new cruise itineraries for two of its ships, Costa Pacifica and Costa Mediterranea, during autumn 2011.
Costa Cruises has reinstated calls to Israel ports of Ashdod and Haifa on Costa Pacifica itineraries, where they were previously removed. On seven cruises, from 12 September 2011 to 17 November 2011, Costa’s clients will once again be able to experience the unique charm of Israel.
Also during autumn 2011, instead of the previously scheduled Eastern Mediterranean cruises to Greece & Turkey, Costa Mediterranea will cruise to Lisbon and Casablanca, the Canary Islands, or Western Mediterranean, in order to meet the growing demand for these destinations.
From the beginning of October to mid November 2011, five Greece and Turkey cruises will be replaced with three Lisbon and Casablanca and two Canary Islands cruises. Two mini cruises sailing 21 and 26 November will be added between the Canary Islands programme and the positioning cruise to Abu Dhabi, where Costa Mediterranea will be deployed during winter 2011/12.
