Costa Fortuna was designed by Carnival ships design-master Joe Farcus. What passengers get is a European cruise with American style comforts
. The Costa Fortuna cruise liner provides all the comforts: casino, 3 story theater with Broadway style shows daily, 3 swimming pools, 5 jacuzzis, beautiful Spa, elaborate fitness center, shopping and so much more!
Our freshly-made Glatt kosher meals in our beautiful dining room will provide a truly festive dining experience! Breakfast, lunch (packed lunches on tour days), tea rooms, delicious dinners and elaborate Shabbat meals will round out the experience, ensuring a wonderful culinary delight.
Highlights of our all-inclusive tours include:
Iceland: Whale Watching – you might not fully understand how amazingly big these animals are! Waterfalls, Geysers, Volcanoes Iceland is one of the most important geyser sites worldwide, magically bursting every 4-10 minutes. Botanical Gardens and the “Golden Circle” is the most popular, unique tourist route in Iceland
Scotland: Kirkwall: for the whiskey lovers amongst you this distillery will be your best dream where you can enjoy a wee dram or two. Lastly, Scapa Flow a body of water in the Orkney Islands, sheltered by the islands of Mainland, Graemsay, Burray, South Ronaldsay and Hoy. Its sheltered waters have played an important role in travel, trade and conflict throughout the centuries. It was the United Kingdom’s chief naval base during the First and Second World Wars, though the facility was closed in 1956.
Germany: Bremerhaven: Climate Museum, where we will be encouraged to interact with most of the approximately 250 exhibits, and Bremen Visit, is a city straddling the River Weser, known for its role in maritime trade and ornate and gothic architecture.
