Costa to cut back on South America in 2013/4


Despite the South American cruise itineraries remaining popular with both the home market in Brazil & Argentina along with Europe, the company have announced that they will be cutting back on ships for the 2013/4 season from 4 to just two.

The company's smaller sibling, Iberocruceros, is also cutting back by one ship to concentrate on the Mediterranean winter market. Costa wish to take better advantage of the winter cruise markets in Asia, Caribbean and Mediterranean, so by rejigging the ships, they can offer competition to the other established winter cruise marketplace in those areas.

The itineraries for winter 2013/4 have yet to be finalised and will be released in due course.
