It has been more than 75 years since Costa Cruises first voyaged with the Anna C on 31 March 1948, from Genoa to Buenos Aires. Today, they are still going and still travelling the seas of the world with the Italian flag proudly flying above their heads. They have many stories to tell: one for each of their ships.
The Franca C, for example, was the first ship in the world to be built for cruises. The year was 1957. Over time the designs, sizes, and décor of the ships have changed, and balconies have been introduced to the majority of cabins; the tastes and requirements of passengers have evolved, but our values have remained unchanged, our commitment to our customers. There’s a distinct Italian flavour running throughout all Costa’s ships, from the works of art and décor to the cuisine, the coffee, and even the gelato. Costa Smeralda, the flagship of the fleet, is the ship that is the symbol of beauty, style and Italian hospitality.
