Costa Victoria Sets Sail to Enchanting Far East from Singapore

This winter, Costa Victoria – Costa Cruises’ largest ship yet to be deployed in the region (75,200 gross tonnage and 2,394 total guests) – invites holidaymakers to experience the enchanting Far East and indulge in its “Italy at Sea” theme along the way.

A first for Costa Cruises, short itineraries are available from Singapore of 3-, 4- and 7- night cruises to Malaysia and Thailand, throughout the period November 2012 to January 2013. Costa offers the best deal in town now and guests can enjoy up to 64% discount.

The enchanting journey begins in the warm, tropical city of Singapore. Thrill seekers can visit the exciting world of Universal Studios Singapore, featuring 24 movie-themed rides and attractions, 18 of which are unique to Singapore. Or, guests can feast their eyes on an unforgettable view over Singapore, from the Sands SkyPark. The bustling boulevard on Orchard Road boasts expansive shopping malls, boutiques, restaurants and bars, while Marina Bay offers an equally impressive retail shopping experience.

Discover historical wonders (3-night cruise)
For a brief escape from the humdrum of everyday life, a 3-night cruise to Port Klang and Malacca in Malaysia is ideal. Malacca offers historical gems and stories behind each of its century-old buildings and narrow winding streets. The Stadthuys, known as the oldest-surviving Dutch building in the East, tops the list of sightseeing spots in a city steeped in heritage.

Sailings depart from Singapore on November 21, December 5 and 19, and January 2, with fares starting from only USD 269 now (brochure price USD 499).

Relaxing and sun-drenched vacations (4-night cruise)
With a Saturday departure, Costa invites guests to set sail on a long weekend to Langkawi and
Penang, Malaysia. While Langkawi is home to many beautiful beaches, it is also an ideal destination for adventurous travelers. Eagle-feeding is one of the must-do activities on this island, where guests can experience a close encounter with some of nature’s wildest eagles. Or, go on a journey through the dark and mysterious Bat Cave where vampires rest!
