Costa Deliziosa: Cruising becomes an art
On Costa Deliziosa, cruising becomes an art. The majestic "Sphere" by Arnaldo Pomodoro in the Great Hall welcomes cruise passengers to a world of sparkling beauty. Each detail reveals the attention paid to ensuring an elegant design on board: the furnishings, the mastery of world-class chefs, sumptuous buffets, elegant bars, real and virtual fun, the wellness center, art and innovation.
Step aboard Costa Deliziosa, and guests will find beautiful furniture and art collections throughout the ship, as well as taste delicious fare from world-class chefs. Onboard amenities include elegant bars, a race-car simulator, 4-D movie theater, roller skating track and golf simulator. Costa Deliziosa also includes a Samsara Spa, which has become a popular feature on several other Costa ships.
Cruising brings art to the dining table on board Costa Deliziosa. Sumptuous buffets and three restaurants provide a wide range of Mediterranean and exotic flavors. From an a la carte dinner in the Deliziosa Club Restaurant to the stylish Albatros Restaurant, as well as lunch at the Muscadins Restaurant Buffet or Grand Midnight Buffet, Costa Deliziosa has an array of artfully crafted cuisines.
Experience a different thrill every night: theater lights, cinema, and music in the bar or disco. You'll also find music in the Excite Piano Bar, dancing in the Sharazad disco, the Sugar Cafeteria, the Tabac Blonde Cigar Lounge, shows in the three-level Duse Theatre and gaming in the casino.
On Costa Deliziosa, you'll have the opportunity to try out the "C" Wonders: five exciting activities organized to test your abilities. For example, there's Virtual Golf, the most highly evolved game simulator installed on a ship. Or there's the Grand Prix Simulator, in which you can experience all the adrenalin of a high speed race for yourself. You can then move on to the outdoor roller-skating rink, the golf area with a putting green and the 4-D cinema.
Spa & fitness
A regenerating cruise can also give you a sense of well-being, especially at the Samsara Spa. Massages, treatments, therapies and oriental rituals are all provided to delight your body and mind among rose petals and aromatic essences. In the Samsara Spa, you'll find new, intense and relaxing sensations in an intimate and elegant environment. Ask the staff to advise you on the best treatments for restoring balance and harmony to your body and transforming your vacation into a cruise of restoration.
Bars & lounges
Costa Delizosa features 11 bars, including a Cigar Lounge and a Coffee & Chocolate Bar. Whether it's summer or winter, the Azzurro Blu Lido has a glass roof that opens and closes to provide relaxation whatever the season. At the front of the ship, Costa Deliziosa welcomes you to the Acqua Regina Lido, a sunny terrace looking directly out to sea and providing an exhilarating natural environment for your vacation.
