Welcome to Cruising Italian Style, a holiday at sea offering you an endless choice of opportunities, both on board ship and ashore. You can have as much freedom as you want on a Costa Cruise, because you can tailor your cruise to suit you. Choose from a dazzling array of itineraries and discover the experience they call Cruising Italian Style across the oceans.
So many pleasures await you onboard that you can indulge in the vacation of a lifetime without ever setting foot on land. Will you join in the dozens of shipboard activities like art auctions, horse racing, bridge games, Italian lessons and trivia contests? Or learn to prepare perfect pesto in an Italian cooking class? Explore all the possibilities available to you when you’re Cruising Italian Style. Families, friends, couples, singles and honeymooners alike are sailing away for the vacation of their dreams and eliminating the hassles of planning a vacation. A cruise is one convenient vacation where you won’t have to worry about catching your next flight as you travel from one destination to another, packing and unpacking your bags. You’ll find that a Costa Cruise ship is a floating resort offering every comfort, convenience and amenity that one could imagine. You can lie back and be completely pampered. Or you can go non-stop enjoying one great show after another – dine like never before – try your luck in the lively casino, or dance the night away to pulsating beats in the disco. It’s no wonder that more people are taking a cruise vacation than ever before. And once you get a taste of cruising, you’ll also want to come back for more again.
In fact, cruises have the highest customer satisfaction over any other vacation experience!
