The cruise line’s flagship Costa Toscana will make her debut in Brazil with an inaugural seven-night cruise to the cities of Salvador and Ilhéus departing from Santos on 26 December 2021. The ship will offer another 15 cruises with the same itinerary from 2 January to 10 April 2022, including departures during Carnival and Easter. She will then leave Brazil to sail to Italy on 17 April.

“The arrival of Costa Toscana is a historic moment for Costa Cruises, for the entire cruise industry and for Brazil,” said Dario Rustico, general manager for Central and South America at Costa Cruises.  “The debut in Brazil of our most innovative ship strengthens the special 72-year long bond between Costa Cruises and South America. Costa Toscana promises to be a highly popular attraction in 2022, enabling our guests to enjoy memorable experiences, five-star dining, high-tech entertainment and the pure joy and relaxation that comes with being on the open sea.”

Starting from 20 November 2021, Costa Favolosa will cruise in South America for 144 days, the longest ever season by a Costa Cruises ship in the region. The ship will sail an eight-night ‘Prata’ itinerary from 13 December 2021 to April 2022, calling at destinations including Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Montevideo, Uruguay; and Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Later in the season, Costa Favolosa will also sail an 18-night voyage between Italy and Brazil. The cruise will depart from Savona, Italy on 2 November 2021, visiting Marseille, France; Barcelona, Spain; and Casablanca, Morocco. The ship will also visit the Brazilian cities of Recife, Salvador, Ilhéus and Rio de Janeiro. She will then make a return trip to Europe from Rio de Janiero to Savona from 16 April to 1 May.
