Costa Serena has embarked on the first outbound South Korea cruise since the end of cruise travel restrictions.

Following two cruises between Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, Costa Serena departed from the port of Busan.

The ship heads to Nagasaki and Yatsushiro in Japan.

“We celebrate a historic event for cruises in Asia. It’s a very important moment for the recovery of the cruise industry in Asia,” said Mario Zanetti, President of Costa Cruises.

From June to October 2023, Costa Serena will be operating a programme of ‘charter’ cruises in Asia, in cooperation with local travel partners.

The total number of cruises is 35.

There are eight South Korea cruises, in June and October 2023, and from July to October 2023 another twenty-seven cruises are planned for the Taiwan market.

The itineraries range from four to seven days.

Calls include Otaru, Hakodate, Fukuoka, Nagasaki, Kagoshima and Miyakojima.

Departures are scheduled from the ports of Busan, Sokcho and Pohang in South Korea, as well as from Keelung and Kaohsiung in Taiwan.

Costa Serena is an Italian-flagged ship accommodating up to 3,780 guests.

On board Costa Serena guests enjoy a wide range of Italian-style culinary and entertainment experiences.
