Costa Classica - Introduction

Launched in 1991, the Costa Classica is the sister ship of the Costa Romantica. The vessel is Italian through-and-through: it was built by Fincantieri in Trieste, sails under the flag of Italy and is operated by the Costa Cruises - an Italian line.

In addition, everything about the vessel exudes Italian style and panache: from the contemporary decor, through to the delicious food and the white-gloved cabin attendants. An art collection worth several million pounds adorns the walls, while sculptures and other works are scattered around the ship.
The Classica is typically found in Asia, offering cruises to popular destinations including Shanghai, Nagasaki, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh City, Phuket and Singapore. Other popular ports of call include Colombo, Goa, Mumbai and Dubai.

In addition, the vessel occasionally returns to European waters via the Suez Canal and sails on voyages around the Mediterranean, stopping at places like Corfu, Dubrovnik, Venice, Mykonos, Malta, Naples and Savona.
