Into the Blue


Into the Blue

Taking our first cruise (Mexican Riviera) in 2009, we learned about the Italian Costa Cruise line. So we decided to give them a try for our next cruise. After several visits with Mr. Fritz Reichetseder, a travel industry veteran and the owner of Reiseoase,, Gallneukirchen’s only travel agency, doing business the old way by paying cash, we finally left his office with our cruise package to sail the Western Mediterranean. So after crossing the Alps and Dolomites on Air Dolomiti, and spending a night at the charming 100 Euros a night including buffet breakfast Hotel Coccodrillo, in Savona, we boarded the Costa Luminosa in the Italian port Genoa. Already into our second day on board the mega ship, we are cruising into the blue horizon towards Malaga.
