Costa back in the Gulf for 2011 with excursion to new Ferrari World

Costa Cruises' fifth consecutive season in the Arabian Gulf this year features seven day cruises to the finest places in the region on Costa Luminosa and Costa Deliziosa – the top range ships of the Costa fleet.

Costa expects to transport approximately 75,000 passengers with 30 port calls in Abu Dhabi and 150,000 passengers with 31 port calls in Dubai during this winter season.

To coincide with the newly opened Ferrari World theme park in Abu Dhabi, Costa has arranged two new excursions for its many Grand Prix fans, one of which is to visit Ferrari World.

Costa Deliziosa features the world’s most cutting-edge Formula 1 circuit

The world’s first Ferrari theme park and the largest attraction of its kind offers Ferrari-inspired rides and attractions for visitors of all ages.

Highlights include Formula Rossa, the fastest roller coaster on the planet, a journey into the heart of a V12 engine, a virtual tour of the historic Maranello factory and the interactive Paddock exhibit.

The other new Abu Dhabi excursion is to Yas Marina, the world’s most cutting-edge Formula 1 circuit. F1 fans can experience thrills and chills at 350 km/h while on board Costa thanks to the Grand Prix driving simulators from the “Costa racing stable”, available on both Costa Luminosa and Costa Deliziosa.

Far from a video game, the simulators produced originated as Grand Prix cars with advanced real-time vehicle modelling, thus reproducing ultra-realistic sensations of being on the world’s best racing circuits.

Costa Luminosa departs from Dubai on Mondays until March 14, 2011, and Costa Deliziosa on Sundays until March 27.  The itineraries of both ships start with two nights in Dubai, followed by calls in Muscat (Oman), Al Fujairah (United Arab Emirates), Abu Dhabi (UAE), Bahrain and end with an additional overnight stay in Dubai.
