Costa Cruises' year-long cruise programme to November 2018 is highlighted by a single summer season Costa Mediterranea cruise visiting the most beautiful cities in Europe with long stopovers in Amsterdam, Paris, London, Bruges, Bremen and Hamburg.

Summer in Northern Europe continues on board Costa Pacifica, Costa Mediterranea, Costa Magica and Costa Favolosa, exploring the wild beauty and nature of the Norwegian fjords, the routes beyond North Cape, Iceland, and the grand capitals and jewels of the Baltic, with the wonderful sights of Sweden, Finland, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. There are seven- to 15-day itineraries from May to September.

Besides Northern Europe, Costa offers a huge range of holidays all over the world at any time of the year. The jewel in the crown of the Italian company is its Mediterranean itineraries on board its 10 ships –
Costa neoClassica, Costa neoRiviera, Costa Diadema, Costa Fascinosa, Costa Magica, Costa Deliziosa, Costa Luminosa, Costa Mediterranea, Costa Favolosa and Costa Pacifica – offering unique experiences with all the region’s history, art and nature.

There’s a wide range of cruises all year long: from mini holidays, to one or two-week cruises in the Western Mediterranean, as well as the Canary Islands and other islands in the Atlantic, and in the Eastern Mediterranean, in Greece and Croatia.

The two summer itineraries on board Costa neoClassica and Costa neoRiviera will be offered again for the 2018 season, for anyone who wants fun nightlife and lively beaches on their holiday at sea.

Guests looking for winter sun from November 2017 to March 2018 can choose from the exotic Costa Cruises itineraries in India, the Maldives, Mauritius, the Seychelles, United Arab Emirates and the Caribbean. These itineraries include one or two-week cruises with special and scheduled flights.

In India, the Maldives and Sri Lanka Costa neoClassica will give guests the unique chance to see breathtaking landscapes and multicultural cities, on a holiday where relaxation and fun is guaranteed for everyone, with itineraries designed for all travellers who like exotic, enchanting destinations.

The long stopovers and night stays, as well as the chance to double up some itineraries, will give Costa guests a complete and intense experience.

From November 2017 to March 2018, Costa neoRiviera will be offering a winter escape to the Indian Ocean, with its unspoilt nature and paradise beaches, exploring the Seychelles, Madagascar, Réunion and Mauritius.

Culture and tradition, and the opulence of futuristic cities are in store in the United Arab Emirates and Oman itineraries: from November 2017 to March 2018, Costa Mediterranea will take its guests on a journey through centuries of history with long stopovers to savour the best of every destination, and a stop at the nature reserve on Sir Bani Yas Island, with its private beach.

The most exclusive of these voyages is undoubtedly the Around the World cruise, which sets off on 6 January from Venice on board Costa Luminosa: 106 days discovering different countries, languages and cultures, from the wonders of the Mediterranean to the Pillars of Hercules and on to South America, from the coast of California to Hawaii, from Australia to Asia, before returning to the waters of the

As of 30 March, Costa Victoria will return to regular cruises in the Mediterranean having been operating mainly in China since 2012.
