According to the Taipei Times, Taiwan expects 90 cruise calls in 2023 as ships return with pandemic restrictions now lifted.
Thirty-two of those are homeporting calls, including 25 by Costa, Tapei Times reported, citing Taiwan International Ports Corp. Chairman Lee Hsien-yi.
But the Costa spokesman on Tuesday said there is currently 'no official announcement' about Taiwan cruises.
Costa Serena adrift
The 2007-built Costa Serena had been scheduled to resume Asia service in 2022 but has remained out of service. AIS data show the ship off Dubai.
The Tapei Times gave no specifics on a Costa ship or itineraries. As for other operators scheduled to call, the report listed March voyages by Holland America Line and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
