Review of Chinese Taishan
In 2014, the Costa Voyager ship was sold to its current shipowner - the Chinese passenger shipping line “Bohai Ferry Company Limited” for USD 43,68 million. The vessel then received its current name - “Chinese Taishan”.
History - construction & ownership
The 24,430-ton, 920-passenger cruise ship Chinese Taishan is the fastest ship in the world. Built in Germany, the ship was formerly part of Royal Olympic fleet as Olympic Voyager (2000-2004) and Ibero fleet as Grand Voyager (2004-2011). Voyager's debut for Costa Cruises was in December 2011 as a small and elegant, perfect for real intimate sea experience vessel. Due to the vessel’s exceptional speed, passengers are going to enjoy longer port stays, securing more time to participate in shore excursions and get a more in-depth local experience.

The Chinese Taishan ship is not crowded and features great atmosphere for personal time and relax, due to outdoor swimming pools and physiotherapy rooms.

The ex-Costa Voyager cruise ship is an exquisite and welcoming vessel, convenient and inviting, stylish and inspiring despite its capacity.
