When travelling the world by cruise ship, it is good to know that even when you are not at port, a little culture remains with you to give you a truly authentic experience. This desire is more than met by the Costa Mediterranea which, with its 17th century Italian design, offers a plethora of beauty offered by few other seafaring vessels in the world.
From the glass elevators and ceilings to the numerous sculptures and wall designs scattered throughout, spacious interiors and stunning views await you on each of the 12 decks aboard the Costa Mediterranea – and these views are quite as diverse, and stunning, as the works of art showcased on board as the Costa Mediterranea travels to a variety of different locations each year.
Perhaps your dream cruise involves discovering hidden coves in the Caribbean or sampling the local cuisine of the Mediterranean? Alternatively, those seeking cooler climes may choose to grasp adventure by touring the Baltic Sea or traversing a Norwegian Fjord? Either way, the Costa Mediterranea can be your floating palace which will become a luxurious home from home the minute you step on board.
As with many Costa Cruise liners, the Costa Mediterranea is the ideal choice for young families as the Squok Kids Club is on hand to tire out the little ones while parents take a well-earned break. This time off can be spent browsing the web in the internet café, checking out the well-stocked library or even indulging in a little retail therapy in the onboard shopping centre – with plenty to do and see, every member of your party will enjoy a good night’s sleep on your cruise!
Italy is renowned for its fabulous cuisine and, on board the Costa Mediterranea, you too can enjoy a sample of the flavours and dishes which have made the European country simply infamous. Those seeking the ultimate in Italian cuisine should make a beeline for the Argentieri restaurant which will delight both the stomach and the eyes – look out for the 139 pieces of silver artworks adorning the room! Fine dining really doesn’t come better than this.
Alternatively, those seeking out a romantic intimate setting can head to one of the many authentic Italian restaurants on board with pizza lovers especially recommended to visit Pizzeria Posillipo for that true Italian vibe.
No matter where you choose to dine, there will be a menu ideally suited to your palate, and if you struggle to choose between the delicious options open to you, our friendly waiting staff and maitre d’s will be on hand to point you in the right direction.
Hot blooded Italians love nothing more than a good party and this is something delivered to guests on board the Costa Mediterranea every night of the week! If you love a touch of the classical style, the stunning Piazza Casanova will transport you straight to a Venetian palace ballroom where you can waltz and foxtrot the night away. Conversely, for those lusting after a more modern vibe, the disco will be right up your street, with frivolities lasting well into the early hours of the morning.
If you are in need of a break, you can sit back and relax in one of the many bars to be found on the eight entertainment decks – the Grand Canal and hidden Giardino Isolabella Bar are both immensely popular all year round. Drinks can also be enjoyed in the impressive Osiris Theatre which, at three tiers high, has plenty of space for the hundreds of guests eager to enjoy the amazing stage shows held throughout the cruise.
