neoRomantica Could Be Fifth Costa Ship in China in 2017

Is Costa Crociere upping its deployment out of China in 2017? It would appear so, as the Chinese market leader appears to be adding a fifth ship to the Chinese market, after growing to four ships this year.

The 1993-built neoRomantica has a repositioning voyage scheduled to end in Shanghai next April, which is consistent with other ship moves from the Italian brand into the Chinese market.

Introducing the so-called “neo” slow-cruising concept, featuring longer itineraries and unique ports, could add a new and differentiated product offering to the quickly growing Chinese source market.

The neoRomantica would join the Victoria, Fortuna, Atlantica and Serena in the region.  

Costa did not respond to a request for comment.
