Set sail and enjoy a hassle-free getaway with Costa Cruises this summer with a wide range of irresistible itineraries to Hong Kong travelers’ all-time favorite destinations in Japan, South Korea and Vietnam. With its new brand campaign “Great Moments at Sea”, Costa Cruises complements its renowned authentic and lively Italian cruise experience with new dining and entertainment offerings at Costa Atlantica (86,000 gross tonnage; 2,680 total passengers) and Costa neoRomantica (56,000 gross tonnage; 1,800 total passengers).

In addition to some of the most well-loved destinations such as Tokyo, Kobe, Okinawa and Busan, Costa Cruises is also taking guests on an expedition to unique destinations such as Maizuru in Japan, Jeju Island in South Korea and Da Nang in Vietnam.

Located on an inlet of the Sea of Japan, Maizuru is a stunning beach town filled with history and incredible local sights. This laid-back escape is definitely a must-go if you are travelling through the Northern Kyoto area. Originally founded in 1943, the city is also home to an impressive collection of temples and shrines.

Jeju Island, also known as the “the Hawaii of South Korea”, is one of Hong Kong people’s most loved destinations. As a volcanic island formed 2 million years ago, South Korea’s World Natural Heritage sites are located in Jeju. Thanks to its beautiful beaches and luscious green terrain, the island has also been listed as one of the seven new wonders of nature!

For guests who are history enthusiasts, or simply love discovering exotic cultures, Da Nang is the place for guests to delve into the soul of Vietnamese culture and heritage. Located on the Eastern Sea coast, midway between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang is the perfect place for guests to explore the attractions of central Vietnam or soak up some rays at the beautiful beaches.
