Costa Cruises from Dubai in winter 2013/2014

From 24 November 2013, Costa Cruises cruise ship Costa neoRiviera will offer a one-week itinerary called "The Emirates in style" departing every Sunday from Dubai. The cruise guests will have longer and more relaxed stopovers on ports at Muscat, the capital of Oman, Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates before sailing back again to Dubai. Guests on the Costa neoRiviera will be able to go in small groups on exclusive excursions specially devised for this cruise. The range of alternatives is diverse and extremely alluring: a day at the beach at the private Al Maya Island Resort, the perfect getaway spot located offshore of Abu Dhabi; the unforgettable experience of a night under the desert sky, with an incredible dawn spectacle and breakfast at an Arabian village; a tour of Oman proper with a visit to Nizwa Fort, dune bashing in Wahiba Sands and an overnight stay in a Bedouin tented camp; in Dubai the opportunity to admire the royal stables and a traditional Arabian horse show.

The 1,600-passenger, 48,200-ton Costa neoRiviera is the newest addition to Costa Cruises fleet. The ship was formerly named as Grand Mistral in Iberocruceros fleet (Spanish cruise brand owned by Costa Crociere). The Costa NeoRiviera offers three restaurants (including one buffet), six bars, two shopping arcades, three swimming pools (including a splash pool for kids), jacuzzis, a beauty and wellness center, hydrotherapy and massages, fitness center, show lounge and disco.
