The Costa Victoria will offer a series of 10 six-night cruises from Japan in the summer of 2016.

The ship had been scheduled to sail from China during that time.

Costa said it will bring “family casual cruising” to Japan with the deployment. The itinerary includes Japanese destinations Fukuoka, Maizuru, Kanazawa and Matsue, plus Busan, South Korea. The cruises will be geared to Japanese passengers.
