The popularity of cruises in Asia has given the European-based cruise line Costa, the ability to add another ship to its year-round Far East itineraries. The Costa Classica joins its sister ship, the Costa Allegra, to offer another viable option for travelers looking to explore this part of the world.

The Classica will sail from Singapore as well as Chinese ports of Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Tianjin, providing customers with both short and long schedules. In addition to the more elaborate 14- to 15-night itineraries, the Classica will sail 4-6 night voyages to Japan and South Korea. Costa will also present passengers with a special voyage between China and Taiwan – a first for the cruise industry.

Gazing down the horizon a ways, Costa will also be christening two new ships, the Luminosa, and the Pacifica on June 5, in Genoa Italy, followed by the Allegra’s replacement, the Costa Romantica in March 2010.
