Costa Victoria

Newly upgraded .. but still designed to reflect the spirit and fashion of Italy

Costa Victoria, which made her debut in 1996, was designed to reflect the spirit of Italy and, according to the company, is for people who love design, elegance, symmetry of shapes and muted colours.

Fully refurbished in 2004, when 242 balconies were added, and again in 2007, the ship has an unmistakable style that combines a traditional nautical look with minimalist design, high value finishes and works of art.

Her most recent makeover, in November 2013, provided her with new balconies, terraces and windows, and further changes that make the renewed Costa Victoria an even stronger testament to an authentic taste of Italian fashion.

The ship welcomes you on board with its soaring seven-deck high Planetarium Atrium or Concorde Plaza, surrounded by glass walls overlooking the sea, which comes to life in the evening with live music and dancing.

Its lounges are decorated and embellished with unique works of art, like the Capriccio Bar, with its valuable mosaic signed by Emilio Tadini.


The new Costa Victoria has several dining experiences for its guests to enjoy, from a Buffet terrace where passengers can dine al fresco to the relaxed Pizza and Noodle area which will provide a cosy hangout for quality family time. There’s even a midnight buffet to be enjoyed after sampling Costa Victoria’s vast selection of evening entertainment.

Costa Victoria has long won admirers for its array of European designer ware at duty-free prices and this couture heritage has been reinforced within the new Costa Victoria. The boutique shopping area has been treated to a deluxe upgrade to ensure those perusing the latest international fashions have an upscale shopping experience.

With almost all of the ship’s interiors re-styled in a contemporary European flair with the intricate use of colours, ingredients and textures, the new Costa Victoria has all the trappings of an international fashion cruise.
