Costa Cruises: Cruising with Italian sophistication

With 17 ships, Costa Cruises is Europe's largest cruise line. For more than 65 years, Costa has brought its special brand of Italian warmth and European sophistication to travelers around the world. Cruising Italian style with Costa is much more than a voyage to a new and exciting destination — it’s an experience that creates lifetime memories.

Highlights include Mediterranean fare that's a cut above the usual mass market fare, a festive atmosphere on board and extensive programs for families and kids. 

Costa's ships sail nearly 700 departures in the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, Dubai, Red Sea, Far East, Indian Ocean, South America, Caribbean and transatlantic. With more than 150 itineraries and more than 200 ports of call in 70-plus countries, Costa's cruises suit a wide range of travelers’ tastes. 

Its new flagship, Costa Diadema, launched in October 2014. The 4,947-passenger ship boasts new entertainment and wine-tasting venues, an expansive open-air promenade and tricked-out spa. 

And finally, it will be years before the Costa brand fully recovers from the Costa Concordia disaster off the coast of Italy in 2012, which resulted in 32 deaths, the biggest maritime evacuation in history and ongoing years of litigation and clean-up. Costa Cruises is one of 11 brands owned and operated by Carnival Corp. 

Family cruising on Costa Cruises 

Look for reduced family rates for kids under 17 sharing a cabin with parents and periodic “kids sail free” deals in non-peak seasons. See more details in Eileen Ogintz's article Family cruises on Costa Cruises , part of our Family Cruise Guide 2016.
