Travellers keen to expand their horizons have fallen in love with cruising in recent years and the reason for this is explained with just one glimpse of the Costa neoRiviera. This ship was first launched in 1999 and, since then, has carried thousands of guests from all over the world to far flung and exotic destinations such as Dubai, Mauritius and the Far East, as well as offering tourists the opportunity to visit UNESCO World Heritage sites all over the planet.
Luxury is the buzzword on the Costa neoRiviera, so from the moment guests step on board they can expect only the best service from our crew. They will also be able to lap up culture whilst at sea, as the interior décor of the ship is inspired by the art, architecture and charm of the Italian Riviera, the Cote d’Azur and the world renowned Amalfi Coast – in other words, the perfect setting to put the brain into a travelling mind set!
Although the Costa neoRiviera attempts to give her guests the best possible chance to immerse themselves in local culture by stopping over for a longer time at each port, this doesn’t mean that the quality of on board facilities is lessened at all. Whether you wish to browse the extensive on board library, try your hand at gambling in the casino or do a couple of lengths in the pool before whiling the hours away in one of two on board whirlpools, there are many options for entertainment whilst out at sea.
One of the best parts about travelling the world is sampling a number of exotic dishes and having the chance to be exposed to new and exciting flavours; an aspect which the Costa neoRiviera provides in abundance. On board, you will find three fabulous restaurants, with the Grill and Pizzeria allowing for a more casual level of dining for those wishing to stick with more familiar – but still sumptuous – dishes. Step into the main restaurant, however, and your taste buds are in for a treat as the gourmet menus showcased here have all been developed in collaboration with the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenzo!
In the restaurant, dining time is entirely flexible for guest convenience, but special events are held throughout the duration of the cruise. Delicious brunches are occasionally served accompanied by wines recommended by the Italian Sommeliers Association, while afternoon teas always prove popular too.
Although port visits are without a doubt the highlight of any cruise, there is plenty to do when out on the open sea thanks to the Costa neoRiviera’s extensive list of on board activities.
For those who love nothing more than dancing the night away, the disco is on hand to have you merengue-ing and doing the cha cha well into the wee hours of the morning! Alternatively, those seeking a little more laid back pastime can visit one of the six bars on board or view one of the evening shows in the stunning theatre.
During the day, the wellness centre is ready and waiting to welcome those seeking the ultimate in relaxation, with the state of the art gym, sauna and steam room complemented by several treatment rooms in which a variety of spa services are offered.
Best of all, the Squok kids club is always on hand to give parents a break, ensuring that your next holiday could well be your most relaxing yet!
