When the ex-Grand Mistral is transferred to Costa’s fleet this winter, she will be renamed and rebranded as the Costa neoRiviera.

This naming scheme is similar to her fleetmate Costa neoRomantica.

She will be deployed to the Middle East with Sunday departures out of Dubai. Her itinerary includes longer port calls so guests can explore the only ports of call on her route; Muscat, Oman and Abu Dhabi, UAE. Costa also states that there will be exclusive shore excursions developed specifically for these trips.
