Savour a little Italian flair on the Med with Costa Cruises, promising comfort, entertainment and pleasure in unmistakable Italian style at great value for money. The Costa Cruise fleet of ships is the pride of the company, they all have a unique character and exclusive services, but they are united by an unmistakable style: the Costa style.
Almost 70 years since Costa Cruises first voyage with the Anna C on 31 March 1948, from Genoa to Buenos Aires, they are still going and still travelling the world’s seas today with the Italian flag proudly flying above their heads. They have lots of 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 decor 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. Its spaces take the name of and inspiration from the squares of the “Bel Paese” of Italy.ENQUIRE NOW
