Travelers looking to make their vacation plans in advance can now book Costa Cruises departures from December 2024 through March 2025. A diverse selection of itineraries in the Mediterranean, Caribbean and United Arab Emirates are available, in addition to the new 2025 Around the World cruise that departs in December 2024 on a unique itinerary.
Costa explores its backyard of the Mediterranean year-round, giving a unique experience in the winter months where the region’s rich history and cultures comes to life in a different way. The flagship Costa Toscana will set sail on weeklong cruises exploring Italy, France, Spain, the Balearic Islands and Sicily, with several extended calls giving guests more time ashore. The itinerary includes Savona, Italy; Marseille, France; Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca, Spain; Palermo, Sicily; and Civitavecchia/Rome, Italy.
The Caribbean is an ideal destination for sun and fun with golden beaches and crystalline waters. Costa Fortuna and Costa Fascinosa will each offer two different alternating seven-day itineraries that can be combined into a single two-week vacation. All calls are at least 10 hours to allow guests time to experience each island with ease.
Costa Fortuna will sail around the Caribbean’s Lesser Antilles. The first itinerary includes Guadeloupe, Tortola, St. Maarten, Antigua, St. Lucia and Martinique. The second itinerary includes Guadeloupe, Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada, St. Vincent, Barbados and Martinique.
Costa Fascinosa’s first itinerary is a full immersion in the Dominican Republic with extended port calls and a full day at Catalina, Costa’s exclusive island. Ports include La Romana, Amber Cove, Samana and Catalina Island, all in the Dominican Republic, along with Ocho Rios, Jamaica, and Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos. The ship’s second itinerary explores six of the Caribbean’s most beautiful islands, calling at La Romana, St. Lucia, Barbados, Guadeloupe, Antigua and the British Virgin Islands.
United Arab Emirates
The United Arab Emirates is an ideal destination to experience a warm winter, and Costa Smeralda will explore the region at this time. The weeklong cruises include a two-day call at Dubai, UAE, as well as visits to Muscat, Oman; Doha, Qatar; and Abu Dhabi, UAE, where guests can experience ancient traditions juxtaposed against modern cities.
Around the World
The 2025 edition of the Around the World Cruise aboard Costa Deliziosa will circumnavigate the globe, exploring mostly in the southern hemisphere. The ship will visit South America’s Tierra del Fuego, Polynesia, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. For the first time, the departure will be in December 2024, allowing guests to enjoy the holiday season on a cruise. New Year’s Eve in Rio de Janeiro will be an unforgettable experience, with a fireworks display from Copacabana Beach.
