Cruises said its neoRomantica ship will add a port stop at Sir Bani Yas, an
island that is part of the United Arab Emirates.
The private beach
located off the southwest coast of the western region of Abu Dhabi is becoming
more popular. MSC Cruises recently announced that it will build a private
destination for its cruises there.
Costa said neoRomantica’s winter itineraries, in
addition to Sir Bani Yas, will include two nights at Dubai; one
night at Muscat, Oman; and a call at Abu Dhabi.
Costa said there will be a VIP area with cabanas at
Sir Bani Yas, and guests can also take a jeep safari in the island's
wildlife park and go kayaking or snorkeling.
