Itinerary

Check in at Malta International Airport for your flight to Singapore with transit.

Upon arrival in Singapore you shall be transferred to your hotel for room allocation. After room check-in, take a walk and familiarize yourself with this island city-state, jam packed with a myriad of things to do, see, buy and devour.

Free time in the morning to experience the centre of the city, consisting mainly of the Orchard, the riverside and the chunk of Chinatown before you head to the cruise port for check in to embark the Costa Fortuna.

Sit back, kick off your shoes and put your feet up during your ‘at sea’ days, where you can chill in the bar, lounge by the pool, enjoy a relaxing beauty treatment in the spa, or if you’re feeling energetic, now’s the chance to explore all the amazing activities the ship has to offer.

Off the coast of the state of Kedah is a cluster of 99 islands with the best of many worlds – beautiful beaches, world-class infrastructure, mangroves rich in flora and fauna, cheap duty-free shopping and fascinating legends. Head up the thrilling cable car to the summit of Mount Mat Cincang – Langkawi’s second highest mountain for an unrivalled view of the entire main island and beyond.

Known as the ‘Pearl of Thailand,’ Phuket offers pristine beaches, lush vegetation, traditional villages and seascapes of huge limestone pillars that rise above the turquoise waters of Phang Nga Bay. You may want to make your way to one of the beautiful beaches or visit the ‘Big Buddha’ near Chalong and of course an elephant ride or a bit of island hopping with the long tail boats.

Officially inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008, Penang’s capital Georgetown holds more than just history. Penang’s vibrant colours reflect the multiculturalism of its people that’s not only evident in the streets but also the food. We suggest you to take a walk-through the town or take a funicular railway ride up the mountain to see the Old British Traders gracious homes and marvel the views.

The leading port of Malaysia, it is the port of Kuala Lumpur, the federal capital. Today we suggest you to join the ship’s excursion to the modern city of Kuala Lumpur, widely recognised for numerous landmarks, including Petronas Twin Towers (the world’s tallest twin skyscrapers), Petaling Street flea market, and Batu Caves, which are over 400 million years old.

In its own way, Singapore is an oasis in Southeast Asia, enjoying low crime rate and highly sophisticated infrastructure. Singapore enjoys a reputation as a shopper’s paradise, with no import duty or sales tax on most items. Located close to the cruise centre is Vivo City, Singapore’s largest multiexperiential retail and lifestyle destination, featuring about 450 outlets.

Enjoy another beautiful day aboard. Relax and enjoy the beautiful amenities the ship has to offer. Sip a nice long drink listening to the waves or immerse yourself in an exciting thriller or romantic book whilst relaxing on deck

Thailand’s third largest island, was discovered in the late 1980’s by the backpacker’s crowd, who spread the word about its white-sand beaches and clear waters. The town can make for a relaxed afternoon off the ship, with its old Chinese shop houses built by itinerant traders, plus restaurants, Thai massage spots and stores. For the more adventurous, there are plenty of beaches and sights. When visiting a public beach, you’ll be greeted by a parade of hawkers selling food, clothing, crafts and pedicures.

Fascinating, vibrant, colourful and at times even mind-boggling… Welcome to Bangkok, where gleaming skyscrapers grace the skyline alongside dazzling, historical temples and luxury hotels. Past, present and future live harmoniously together. Most of Bangkok’s sights are concentrated in the ‘Old City’ on Rattanakosin Island. Wat Pho is a must-see, famous for its huge gold-plated reclining Buddha and renowned massage school.

Formerly Kompong Som and familiarly just Snookyville is a seaside town featuring Cambodia’s best-known beaches. There’s a host of ways to get around but the main form of transportation around town is Tuk Tuks. Spectacular views of almost the entire city and gorgeous sunset panoramas await at Wat Leu, situated on a peaceful, forested hilltop 1.5km northwest of the city centre. About 18km from downtown is Raem National Park, which offers both boat and safari tours of its 21,000 hectares of land and marine habitat, with some 155 species.

Vietnam’s largest island, this unassuming island, was once a quiet backwater know for pepper farms and fish sauce, and its sandy beaches and swathes of dense jungle were Vietnam’s best kept secret. Experience local industries including a sim wine factory, pearl farm, fish sauce factory and pepper farm. See exhibits on war crimes at Puo Quoc Prison (coconut tree prison) and visit Ham Ninh fishing village, Phu Quoc national park and Nguyen Trung Truc Temple. You can sunbathe and swim at Sao Beach and Dai Beach.

Enjoy your last day on board. Don’t miss out to shop for a variety of name-branded items and some lastminute duty-free shopping. You will be instructed to leave you luggage outside your stateroom by midnight, as bags will be transported ashore by Costa personnel early morning.

Ship will arrive in Singapore at 0900hrs. Enjoy your last breakfast on board before you are called to disembark. Since the flight is in the evening we suggest you to join an optional excursion for a city tour before your transfer back to the airport for your flight.
