About This Line
Italian-style cruising is a mixture of Mediterranean flair and American comfort, beginning with a buon viaggio celebration. The supercharged social staff works overtime to get everyone in the mood during the line’s signature nighttime parties and encourages everyone to be a part of the action.
Shipboard activities include games of bocce, dancing the tarantella, and tossing pizza dough during the Festa Italiana, an Italian street festival at sea. Other nights are themed as well—a welcome-aboard celebration (Benvenuto A Bordo), hosted by the captain on the first formal night, and Notte Tropical, a tropical deck party with a Mediterranean twist that culminates with the presentation of an alfresco midnight buffet. When it is time to say goodbye, Costa throws a Roman Bacchanal.
There's also a nod to the traditional cruise ship entertainment expected by North American passengers. Pool games, trivia, bingo, and sophisticated production shows blend nicely with classical concerts in lounges, where a wide range of musical styles invite dancing or listening. Italian language, arts and crafts, and cooking classes are extremely popular.
