Carnival Corp is staging a cruise comeback in Asia with the deployment of a single ship from its Costa brand beginning in June.

The 114,300-gt cruise ship Costa Serena (built 2007) will operate a series of 30 cruises, six of which will depart from South Korean ports, and the remainder out of Taiwan.

Notably, no cruises have been scheduled out of China, which was Costa’s main Asian source market before the pandemic.
