Thinking of new ways to bring in this Christmas or New Year? If yes, then Chaitali Mehendale has got an offbeat plan for you. This December, a luxury cruise liner will begin its maiden journey from Mumbai to Maldives, and you’re invited for an incredible experience!


 Costa neoClassica; extravagance at its finest

Costa neoClassica; extravagance at its finest

Costa Cruise, Europe’s leading cruise company, will operate the extravagant Costa neoClassica ship that will let you explore Indian Ocean’s splendid beauty.

Some of its many features include over 650 cabins, 14 decks, 2 pools, a theater, a gym and a range of entertainment options. If that’s not enough, 428 amazing sea-view cabins and 10 suites with private balconies will definitely sweep you off your feet. Mumbaikars, especially, have a special advantage as this cruise begins from one of the city’s major ports.

So be it a honeymoon plan, a New Year celebration or just the excitement of a cruise holiday, Costa Cruise will make December a month you’ll never forget!

PS: Rs 43,000 is all you need to experience extravagance on this 8 days cruise.

Need more reasons to come aboard? Here are three:

#1 Experience Entertainment At Its Best!

Unwind by the poolside, indulge in an indoor jacuzzi or pamper yourself with a steam/sauna bath; at this cruise relaxation is not taken lightly! The Costa cabins are an island of comfort and they immediately put you in the holiday mood. And not just you, your kids will also have a great time thanks to a variety of fun-filled activities available on-board. A casino, piano bar, disco and Broadway shows will ensure fun is always around the corner.

The glorious food inspired by Mediterranean and Italian cooking will keep your taste-buds happy throughout the holiday, all amidst a dreamlike setting!

#2 Opt For City Tours Or Shore Excursions En Route

This holiday will let you indulge in some of the most spectacular beaches, islands and exotic shopping en route. At your first halt in New Mangalore, you could do a city tour, and embark on some recommended shore excursions, including Kadri Manjunath Temple, Mangaladevi Temple and Milagres Church. Else you could simply amuse yourself with the daytime activities on-board the ship.

In case you do plan to take the cruise tour back from Maldives, you’ll get to explore the bustling city of Colombo, capital of Sri Lanka. It is known for its rich colonial heritage, spicy cuisine and tranquil beaches. En route take a halt at the interesting site of Mormugao, Goa’s main port.

#3 Visit Male In Maldives

Begin your day in Male with breakfast on the ship. Post that, you could try your hand at snorkeling or opt for the optional recommended shore excursions.

Male is a renowned holiday spot thanks to it’s stunning landscapes, as well as a number of attractions, which include Male Fish Market, Majeedhee Magu and 17th-century Hukuru Miskiy (also known as Old Friday Mosque) made of coral stone. A trip to these places during your stay here is highly recommended.

Snorkelling at Maldives is sure to be a fascinating experience

    We experienced Neoclassica route to Maldives and it was fantastic ! However, just a piece of good advice : book your shore excursions off the cruise , price on board are just ridiculously expensive ! We found a company who arranged our excursions for almost half the price and with more inclusions than the shore excursions offered on board. We booked through a local company a full day visit to Club med resort ( with drinks and food) and the second day before departure a snorkeling/sandbank and dolphin cruise and it was so amazing.
