Today you’ll embark Costa Venezia, a brand new ship sailing for the first time in 2019. Inspired by the grandeur of Venice, this ship shimmers with glamour and beauty, from the gilded statues and fountains in the St Mark’s Square atrium to the Lido Deck with its echoes of the chic Venice Lido, one of Italy’s most sophisticated resorts. Tonight you’ll enjoy an overnight stay in port on board the ship.
Although Dubai glimmers with its glamorous skyline, boutiques and sun-soaked beaches; it is also a city rooted in tradition and history. This can be seen in the impeccable hospitality and courtesy that are extended to visitors, the many mosques dotted around the city and the call of prayer that fills the air.
An overnight in port gives you more time to explore Abu Dhabi and discover more than its beaches of clean white sand and modern skyscrapers. The capital of the Emirates offers intriguing insights into a more traditional culture as you stroll around the souks and shisha cafes and its bustling dhow harbour.
Abu Dhabi boasts an impressive array of attractions from pristine beaches to wildlife reserves and theme parks. You could visit the beautiful white Sheikh Zayed Mosque, the largest mosque in the emirates; Ferrari World and exotic wildlife on Yas Island; or learn about the ancient sport of falconry at the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital.
This laid-back holiday town is the perfect spot for snorkelling, swimming and sunbathing. Unlike the other emirates, Fujairah’s coastline sits on the Gulf of Oman which means it has great diving opportunities and diverse marine life. Behind the stunning beaches are the foothills of the dramatic Hajar Mountains, rich in hot mineral springs and archaeological sites.
With 15 restaurants on board, as well as six bars and lounges, dining on board Costa Venezia is an adventure in itself. Choose from traditional Italian-themed menus, including delicious pizzas, to authentic Chinese and Asian cuisines. Head to Delle Stelle’s balcony to enjoy your favourite cocktail surrounded by incredible ocean views, or at night, underneath a blanket of stars.
Laidback, sunny and spicy; Goa is just as well suited to those who want to relax on the beach or practice yoga. A dizzying and intoxicating blend of Indian and Portuguese cultures and cuisine; the island’s biggest lure is its wonderful golden beaches.
Enjoy the spirit of the famous Venice Carnival at the biggest party at sea: the masquerade ball. A whole deck of Costa Venezia is decorated to host this traditional event in grand style. So get dressed up, grab your ‘vòlto’ or mask and get ready for a night of dancing, games, music and a few carnival surprises.
Known as the ‘Gateway to Kerala’, Cochin’s rich trading past is reflected in its striking architecture that has been influenced by British, Portuguese, Dutch and Chinese explorers, traders and travellers. Here you can find synagogues alongside churches and ancient mosques and at sunset you may catch a glimpse of local fisherman casting their vast Chinese fishing nets.
This enchanting city is a the perfect place for an overnight stay in port as you’ll have more time to explore its unique heritage and natural beauty. Head to Cherai Beach for tranquil golden sands surrounded by swaying coconut trees, explore Keralan art in several museums or enjoy a soothing Ayurvedic massage. `
Sri Lanka’s hectic capital is the gateway to the island’s beaches, tea trails and elephant safaris. However there’s more to this historic city than the industrial port that shipped tea around the globe and honking tuktuks weaving through the traffic. Take in Colombo’s stunning colonial architecture; markets with fragrant spices and colourful silks and lush parks where snake charmers still entertain passers-by.
You’ll have a day at sea to enjoy all the facilities on board Costa Venezia. Treat yourself at the spa that offers a thalassotherapy pool, sauna, steam room and a range of treatments. Or relax by the pool on the stylish Lido Deck, where you can also catch a movie from your lounger.
This archipelago of tropical paradise islands has white-sand beaches, clear turquoise seas and swaying palm trees. If you’re feeling brave, you could visit the Langkawi Sky Bridge for exhilarating views of the rainforest below and the gorgeous Telaga Tujuh waterfall.
