As it works to restart cruises on May 1, 2021, Costa Cruises is continuing with its gradual program of reintroduction of cruise holidays, releasing its itineraries from April 2022 to April 2023 that are now available for booking through travel advisors and online.
For the 2022 summer season, Costa’s offer will focus on Mediterranean and northern European destinations.
In May 2022, Costa’s new flagship, the Costa Toscana, will make its debut offering week-long cruises of Italy, France and Spain, with a long call in Ibiza.
As well, the Costa Smeralda will offer weeklong cruises in the western Mediterranean.
Both ships are the first in Costa’s fleet to be powered by liquefied natural gas.
Costa will operate three other ships on week-long itinerarires in the eastern Mediterranean.
The Costa Deliziosa will sail to the Greek islands, with an overnight call in Mykonos. Costa Luminosa will visit the Greek islands and Croatia, and Costa Magica will visit Greece and Malta.
Four Costa ships will cruise in northern Europe. Costa Fortuna will offer two-week cruises to Iceland, or alternatively to Ireland, Scotland and England. Costa Favolosa and Costa Diadema will feature one-week cruises, respectively, in the Baltic capitals, calling three days at Stockholm and two in St. Petersburg, and in the Norwegian fjords. Costa Fascinosa’s program includes 12-day itineraries to the North Cape and nine days in the Baltic Sea.
The 2022-23 winter season will include the return of Grand Cruises onboard Costa Luminosa: two 50-day holidays, from Genoa to Buenos Aires, Argentine; and from Buenos Aires to Genoa, going up the Amazon River to the heart of the Amazon.
The Costa Deliziosa World Tour will depart on Jan. 11, 2023, from Savona, and will visit Europe, Asia, Africa and America.
Exotic destinations to enjoy the sun even in winter are also part of the program with a one-week itinerary in the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar, and three different weeklong itineraries in the Caribbean. Three ships will be positioned in South America, with Costa Toscana, Costa Favolosa and Costa Fortuna visiting Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina.
Closer to home, Costa Magica will offer two-week cruises to the Canary Islands and the Azores, while Costa Diadema visits Greece and Turkey or Israel and Egypt.
Costa Smeralda will continue to sail in the western Mediterranean, joined in autumn by Costa Luminosa and Costa Fortuna, offering mini-holidays for a relaxing break of a few days. Also in autumn, Costa Fascinosa will visit Portugal and Spain, and Costa Favolosa will sail to Morocco.
