Costa Romantica epitomizes Costa's devotion to Italian design.

“Via Condotti” is the elegant European shopping promenade on Costa Romantica.

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

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

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

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

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

The Costa Romantica “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.
