Costa Cruises Redefines Hong Kong Skyline, Bringing Iconic Sky-High Fashion Show to the Asian Seas

February 8, 2018 Cruise Deals No Comments Email Email

Costa Cruises, the Italian cultural brand of Carnival Corporation & plc (NYSE: CCL; LSE: CUK), the world’s largest travel and leisure company, along with renowned catwalk producer and model Jessica Minh Anh, yesterday jointly hosted a sky-high fashion show onboard the sundeck of Costa neoRomantica in Hong Kong. As the latest edition in Minh Anh’s worldwide series, the innovative J Winter Fashion Show 2018 combined elements of art, architecture, culture and fashion and brought them to new heights as neoRomantica overlooked the iconic Hong Kong skyline.

The high-profile J Winter Fashion Show 2018 premiered 6 haute couture and pret-a-couture collections from Europe, Asia, South America, and America on the sky-high sundeck of Costa neoRomantica, where honoured guests were welcomed on board with a red carpet entrance and treated to a VIP afterparty with Italian delicacies and live music.

Jessica Minh Anh is no stranger to hosting fashion shows in previously unthinkable locations – other editions of her famous sky-high catwalk series have seen the supermodel and catwalk producer transform London’s Tower Bridge, One World Trade Center and the Eiffel Tower into temporary runways, just to name a few. Onboard neoRomantica, Minh Anh once again brought her spectacle to Costa Cruises, having previously hosted shows on the Costa Luminosa in Sydney and Costa Atlantica in Dubai. Inspired by the intercontinental nature of cruise travel and the power of the oceans, Minh Anh’s latest event showcased the best in modern design from different continents and celebrated the energy of a new talented generation that matches the hydropower.

As the brand that brought cruising to China in 2006 and the leader in the Chinese cruise market today, Costa Cruises is constantly innovating to create new and exciting experiences to its guest through its “Italy at Sea” concept. With fashion taking a leading role in Italian culture, this showcase onboard neoRomantica brought this culture to the forefront of the Asian market in a unique and exciting way.

The choice of Costa neoRomantica as the stage for this spectacle is not without merit. Launched in 2011, neoRomantica is a refined, prestigious and elegant ship, for those who wish to set sail to new horizons in luxury. Created for exceptional guests, the ship features a stupendous central atrium, two-floor Samsara Spa, Verona wine bar and is embellished with a large collection original fine art, creating an intimate ambience more akin to a luxury hotel than a cruise ship.

“Costa neoRomantica is among the most sophisticated of all Costa’s ships – providing guests with an experience that pushes the definition of luxury.” said Mario Zanetti, President of Costa Group Asia. “The world is looking at Costa Asia to bring the sky-high ocean catwalk to the ship, and we are very honored to once again host Jessica Minh Anh as she too breaks down boundaries and perceptions with her stunning art. Framed against the blue ocean and the celebrated Hong Kong skyline, this exhibition is the coming together of two innovators in their own fields, working together to provide a sensory experience for people around the world.”

Costa neoRomantica’s arrival in Hong Kong on February 6th marks the commencement of 4 sailings homeported from the city. From February 23rd, Costa neoRomantica will homeport in Keelung, Taiwan, starting three four-day expeditions to Okinawa and Miyakojima in Japan. Whilst from April 21st to November, Costa neoRomantica will start its five- to ten-day voyages to a number of port cities in Japan and Korea from Tokyo or Fukuoka, offering guests to experience the most authentic local culture.

From authentic Italian dining, to world-class entertainment and the best in Italian designer brands, Costa Cruises provides a range of choices to help guests explore their cultural palate.
