Cruises on board the Costa Smeralda
Scheduled to launch in 2019, the Costa Smeralda will become the largest ship in the Costa cruise line. Named after Sardinia's Emerald Coast, the ship is a true tribute to Italy. The decks and public areas will all be themed after popular destinations in Italy, and passengers will be able to enjoy their favorite pizza, pasta, and gelato they know and love from other Costa ships. The ship will stop at popular ports in the western Mediterranean, including Barcelona, Rome, and Marseille.
True to her namesake, the ship is very green: the Costa Smeralda will be one of the first major cruise ships to be powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG), the cleanest ship fuel available today. She will also feature such innovations as new stateroom designs, full-height bathroom windows for more natural light, and a more modern, restrained color scheme.
One of Europe’s leading affordable cruise lines, Costa is known for taking exciting, action-packed voyages to sunny locations. Its itineraries are great for families, kids, and couples.
