Costa: Istanbul Out, Rhodes In

Costa Crociere is the latest cruise line to cancel calls in Turkey, opting to drop Istanbul for 2016.

“In response to the ongoing guest concerns, Costa Crociere has decided to alter the itinerary of Costa neoRiviera’s cruises from March 28 to Nov. 8 by replacing the calls originally scheduled in Istanbul with calls in Rhodes,” said Costa, in a statement released to Cruise Industry News.

Dropping Istanbul, passengers flying in to board the neoRiviera in Turkey will now embark in Rhodes.

The neoRiviera is part of Costa’s neoCollection, which features ships sailing so-called slower cruises featuring smaller and more unique ports.
