Costa and its parent company Carnival have had a tough two years since the Concordia crash. It’s latest initiative is an attempt to get back customers while attracting new cruisers.

Costa Cruises will launch “slow cruising,” a new concept for the line, in February on Costa neoRiviera and Costa neoRomantica. The experience features longer itineraries, extended time in port that may include an overnight, shore tours that emphasize cultural attractions and are limited to 25 or fewer guests as well as local foods and wines in the dining rooms.
“Slow cruising and the neoCollection is a premium grade product aimed at a sophisticated, slightly older clientele,” says a Costa spokesperson.
