Helming Costa’s Asia fleet is the Costa Victoria – a colossal cruise ship that reflects the design elements of Italy. Aside from being the perfect home base for Asian travellers with families, the massive ship also entices with other luxurious highlights that truly makes one’s voyage experience like any other. Here are five reasons why you should cruise with Costa Victoria:
1. A Carnival Awaits
When aboard the Costa Victoria, cruise goers will be able to immerse themselves in the Carnival of Venice while out at sea.
The traditional festival, which originated from Venice in Italy, originated from a victory of the “Serenissima Repubblica” against the Patriarch of Aquileia, Ulrico di Treven in the year 1162. In the honour of this victory, the people started to dance and gather in San Marco Square.
Here, guests will try their hand on creating their own Venetian masks, before dressing up in costumes for the festive carnival. To add to the excitement, guests will also be treated to live music and a parade in the Atrium.
