Costa Cruises adds a third ship to its 2020-21 South America winter season

Costa Cruises is to base a third ship in South America for the winter 2020-21 season to meet a growth in demand.

Costa Luminosa will join Costa Fascinosa and Costa Pacifica in the region to offer various itineraries to discover Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay.

“The arrival of Costa Luminosa for the 2020/2021 season reflects Costa Cruises’ desire to strategically invest in the South American market, a market with a great potential for growth,” said Dario Rustico, Costa’s general manager for Central and South America.

“For this reason we want to gradually increase our presence in the region.”

In particular, Costa Fascinosa, which will head for South America from Savona in mid-November 2020, will have its principal home port at Santos. The cruises will sail toward the North of Brazil, visiting destinations such as Buzios, Salvador, Ilheus and Ilha Grande.

After the transatlantic crossing departing Genoa on 13 November, the Costa Pacifica cruises will mainly concentrate on Argentina, Uruguay and the southern part of Brazil. Calls are scheduled at Buenos Aires (Argentina); Ilhabela, Buzios, Rio de Janeiro, and Ilha Grande (Brazil); and Montevideo (Uruguay).

Costa Luminosa will also leave from Santos, with seven-night cruises directed to Itajai (Brazil), Buenos Aires, and Montevideo. The positioning cruise in South America from Venice to Santos will sail on 8 November.
