A 20-night itinerary makes up the first voyage of Costa Deliziosa
, which will depart Dubai on February 5th 2010 after its naming ceremony.
Holidaymakers opting for the voyage will be among the first people to enjoy "some of the most fantastic facilities in the world of cruising", such as an exceptional 4D cinema, according to Costa Cruises.
Other features in the new ship include a Grand Prix driving simulator, a roller-skating track, an exclusive golf simulator complete with an outdoor putting green and a PlayStation Experience.
Those eager for some pampering while at sea will have their wishes fulfilled in the Samsara Spa, which is one of the largest spas on a ship, according to the cruise operator.
More than 1.65 million British people are expected to take a cruise holiday next year, according to the Passenger Shipping Association.
