Costa Cruises offer an ‘Italian-style’ packaged cruise holiday experience, which is great for families and first-time cruisers. Their vibrant, European-style environment means French, German, Russian and Dutch passengers are to be found in large numbers on Costa cruises, along with Italian and English speakers. The Costa Cruises fleet is the largest in Europe with twelve elegant and comfortable ships to choose from, which are all designed to combine casual luxury, entertainment and pleasure.

Each new day will bring exciting experiences and the chance to explore some of the most beautiful and culturally rich places on earth, all complemented by exceptional standards of personal service. Onboard, you can expect Mediterranean-influenced dining and good Italian wines, with a focus on good food and no particular rush to finish eating. Dining times are later than most American and many European passengers expect and entertainment may be conducted primarily in Italian, or in four or five languages sequentially - be prepared for either as you won’t get pure English-language shows or competitions.

  • Brand history - Since 2000 Costa has been owned by the Carnival Corporation but you’d never know it from the proudly Italian nature of the line
  • Signatures of the line - Italian food, relaxed European entertainment, more tolerance of smoking and less of screaming kids
  • Number of ships - 17
  • Best for (kids, entertainment etc) – the spas on the new Costa ships are fantastic but for most passengers it’s the great food and adult atmosphere that feature in their ‘best’ list
  • Special dining features – the cuisine is Italianate and proud of it
  • Special suite features – Costa accommodation is often seen as being a little small by Americans, but nicely cosy by Europeans
  • Special kid features – it’s expected that young people will take part in the daily club sessions and not hang around the adult areas
  • Entertainment features – lots of languages spoken on board, which can make entertainment a bit hit and miss for those who’ve got used to English-only shows
  • Spa and fitness features – the Samsara spas on the newer ships get rave reviews from passengers although some Americans find the layout a little compact
  • Routes – almost everywhere but with a strong focus on European itineraries
