Costa Mediterranea was inspired by Italy's 17th and 18th century palazzi and castles.

The spectacular Maschera d'Argento Atrium spans 10 decks high and features an incredible sculpture of dancers suspended mid-air.

Reminiscent of an aristocratic Sicilian palace, the two-level Degli Argentieri Restaurant is adorned with exquisite objects d'art and frescos.

The elegant shopping promenade features trendy merchandise by Versace, Armani, and Gucci. 

Each deck on Costa Mediterranea is dedicated to mythology in the Mediterranean Sea, a crossroads of cultures and civilizations.

Tucked far forward is a stunning chapel with an altar, wood pews, stained glass panels, and religious icons.

The cuisine in Costa Mediterranea’s alternative restaurant, Club Medusa is served on Versace-designed tableware

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

At the Festa Italiana, Costa Mediterranea guests are invited to an Italian street festival at sea featuring Bocce Ball contests, Tarantella dance lessons, pizza dough tossing competitions, and Venetian mask making. 

The Costa Mediterranea “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.
