Costa Adds Costa Classica to Asian Operations

Costa Cruise has doubled the number of ships deployed in Asia with the addition of the larger Costa Classica joining her sister the Costa Allegra.

The 1,680 passenger Costa Classica joins the 1,000 passenger Allegra for year round sailings which were started by the Allegra in 2006.
The Classica which spent the winter in Dubai, sailed directly to Singapore for her first cruise.
Since Costa started sailing in Asia they have carried approximately 100,000 passengers with half of them of Chinese origin.
Costa will be offering short cruises as well as cruises as long as 15-days.
Showing confidence in the success of their Asian operation, Costa plan to replace the smaller Allegra with the Costa Romantica - the identical sister ship to the Costa Classica.
