Costa Mediterranea: Inspired by classical Italian elegance

Have you sailed on Costa Mediterranea? We'd love to hear your take and see your photos. The following information was curated by Cruiseable.


Costa Cruises' Costa Mediterranea is a crossroads of cultures and civilizations as it's inspired by Italy's 17th and 18th century palazzi and castles, while the decks are dedicated to mythology in the Mediterranean Sea. 

Costa Mediterranea's attention to detail and refined furnishings are complemented by modern services. Additionally, the cabins are large and most of them include a private balcony.
