Costa Crociere has released its 2015/2016 brochure with 553 cruises covering 261 destinations with 137 itineraries from 60 different embarkation/disembarkation ports.

Presenting its sailings from Nov. 2014 through April 2016, Costa said the focus is on new itineraries to it’s most popular destinations – the Mediterranean, Northern Europe and the Caribbean – as well as the Middle East, South America and Asia. T

hree new world cruises are also offered.

The biggest news may be the debut of the new Costa Diadema this November. Calling her the Regina del Mediterraneo (the Queen of the Mediterranean), she will sail in the Mediterranean during the 2014/2015 winter and 2015 summer seasons.

One section of the brochure is dedicated to Costa’s so-called neoCollection, what the company calls slow cruising to offbeat destinations with the neoClassica joining the neoRiviera and neoRomantica. The neoClassica will introduce new cruises in the Indian Ocean.
