Costa Deliziosa Review
About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
Sister-ship to Costa Luminosa, Costa Deliziosa entered service in 2010. While she is most frequently found in the Western or Eastern Mediterranean or Baltic in Europe, she will embark for a 100-day World Cruise in 2014.
These thoroughly Italian beauties are a hybrid class of ship based on Carnival Cruise Lines’ Spirit-class and Holland America Line’s Vista-class. Sister ships Costa Luminosa and Costa Deliziosa are considered the Costa fleet’s “flagships” and, therefore, share the most exclusive and innovative elements in the fleet, designed for Costa’s most discerning passengers. Costa Luminosa has a contemporary design in a distinctive avant-garde style, including interiors decorated with premium materials. Twenty different types of marble, wood, mother-of-pearl, and granite are incorporated, as are 120 Murano-glass lamps and chandeliers and the use of LED lights. The ship's collection includes 288 original works of art and more than 4,700 reproductions throughout.
Costa Deliziosa design is also avant-garde in style and is done up in premium materials similar to those used on its sister ship, including stucco applied by spatula using the technique known as “spatolato veneziano.” Other decorative interior finishes including “parchment scroll” lamé, refined Zebrano wood, Wenge timbers, and stylish polished and glazed steel.
The most innovative features on both ships are the multisensory experience of the "4-D" cinema (traditional 3-D plus other sensory elements). There are also golf and Grand Prix racing simulators.
