Costa Mediterranea

To see discounted cruises on this ship, use the Find a Bargain box on the left.

On Costa Mediterranea, Italian elegance comes together with fine details inspired by Italian buildings and palaces of centuries past. Unique to the entire Costa fleet, the Argentieri Restaurant features little embellishments that will remind you of Italy and hundreds of artistic pieces of silverware. There are several other restaurants available for hungry passengers and a handful of bars, including a bar filled exclusively with the best wine available. For those focused on wellness, the two level Ischia Spa is like paradise. It features a fully equipped gym, spa treatment rooms, a sauna, a Turkish bath and four Jacuzzis. You can let the kids have fun on their own at the Squok Club, a club just for them. You can then head over to the casino to try your hand at slots or card games. There is also a three level theater, a library, an internet café and even a shopping center. No matter what your taste, Costa Mediterranea allows you to experience Italian perfection while at sea.

On Europe sailings that depart May through October and Caribbean sailings that depart December through March, Costa requires that at least one passenger in each cabin be 25 or older.
