Costa Classica’s full promenade deck was designed with fitness enthusiasts in mind.

In the Tivoli Restaurant, exquisite murals transform windows into scenes from the Renaissance and Roman Times.

The tabletops in the Puccini Ballroom depict scenes from famed Puccini operas.

Situated high atop this Costa fleet ship, Galileo Disco and Observatory offers 360 degree views: an observatory by day, a state-of-the-art disco by night.  

In-room safe deposit boxes, telephones, hairdryers, and radio and television programming are just a few features of Costa Classica staterooms. 

“Ponte Vecchio” the marble-lined shopping galleria on Costa Classica features boutiques with designer merchandise. 

Costa Classic interiors were designed by one of Italy’s premier architectural firms, known for their work in Paris’ Musée d’Orsay. 

Almost $20 million was invested in Costa Classica’s original works of art, including sculptures, paintings, murals, wall hangings, and hand crafted artisan furnishings. 

Italian accented cuisine is prepared on board Costa Classica by European chefs and culinary school graduates, who are also members of the world famous Chaîne des Rôtisseurs. 

White-gloved attendants escort Costa Classica passengers to their staterooms upon embarkation. 

The Costa Classica “Costa Kids” Program provides fun for children from ages 3 to 17, including pizza parties, face painting, masquerades, pirate treasure hunts, visits to the bridge, and even Italian lessons. 

Costa Classica’s complete Business Center contains the latest audio/visual and communications equipment.
