Costa Cruises is bringing back a taste of Italy to the tropics this winter when Costa Mediterranea repositions to the Caribbean beginning Nov. 20, 2012. The ship is set to sail 10-day cruises that feature six ports of call and cover an expanded area of the region. Costa Mediterranea is replacing sister ship Costa Atlantica, which will reposition to Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
From November to February 2013, the 86,000-ton, 2,144-guest Costa Mediterranea will sail two 10-day round-trip Caribbean itineraries from Miami with calls at Nassau, Bahamas; Ocho Rios, Jamaica; Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands; Roatan, Honduras; Cozumel, Mexico, and a call at either Belize City, Belize, or Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos.
“Costa Mediterranea’s itineraries are unique because of their extended length and span of both the eastern and western Caribbean,” said Scott Knutson, vice president of sales and marketing for Costa Cruises North America. “The 10-day cruises enable guests to explore more of the Caribbean’s diverse destinations in one itinerary and provide an opportunity to take part in the more than 80 shore excursions offered throughout the voyage.”
Costa Mediterranea has 1,057 staterooms including 678 with private balcony, four restaurants, 12 bars including a Wine Bar and a Cognac and Cigar Bar, four swimming pools, solarium, multipurpose sports court and outdoor jogging track.
Fares for the 10-day cruises start at $699 per person, double occupancy. A special New Year’s Eve holiday sailing departs Dec. 30, 2012, and starts at $1,099 per person, double occupancy.
