Thailand’s flourishing cruise industry was given another boost following the decision to base a luxury international cruise ship in Bangkok.
Costa Cruises commenced its first ever homeport season in Laem Chabang, which will see 2,394-passenger Costa Victoria operate cruises around Gulf of Thailand. According to Costa, the move reflected its “commitment to build the cruise market in the region”.
Costa Victoria arrived in Bangkok on January 11, 2017 following a cruise from Singapore. Until January 25, the ship will offer three 4-night cruises around Gulf of Thailand, visiting Koh Samui, Sihanoukville and Phu Quoc Island (Vietnam). It will then sail to China on a 4-night relocation cruise.
