Seven European cities in one Costa cruise in 2011

Costa Cruises is launching a brand new 11-day itinerary taking in the capital cities of seven European countries.

Costa Magica Departing from the UK on Costa Magica, A Taste of the Great Capitals of Europe will transport guests to the delights of Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Oslo and Edinburgh.

This truly cosmopolitan cruise allows travellers to visit Parisian bistros, sample fresh local seafood in Copenhagen’s Nyhavn area, take a leisurely stroll along the canals of Amsterdam and admire the 212 bronze and granite statues in Oslo’s Vigeland Park.

“Only Europe’s number one cruise company could come up with an itinerary like this one, uniting Europe and enabling guests to visit seven of the continent’s top short break destinations all in one trip,”  says Marco Rosa, Area Director UK, Ireland, Scandinavia & South Africa from Costa Cruises.

“Every year we do our utmost to innovate and improve, providing a unique holiday experience that will turn our customer’s dreams into reality. We are delighted with this new addition.”

Costa Magica will call at the following ports:  Le Havre, with excursions to Paris; Dover, gateway to London; Amsterdam; Hamburg, with trips to Berlin; Copenhagen; Oslo; and Edinburgh.  For cruises leaving on 28 May, 17 July and 6 August, the port of call at Edinburgh will be replaced by a stopover in the Scottish harbour of Invergordon, the seaway to Loch Ness and the Highlands.

Prices start from £1,019pp.
