 Costa Mediterranea

The Costa Mediterranea was launched in 2003 and can hold 2,114 passengers. The decor of the ship is inspired by 17th and 18th century Italian castles and palazzis. Perhaps the best example of this is the two-level Degli Argentieri Restaurant, which is adorned with exquisite objects d'art and frescos. For passenger's enjoyment, the Costa Mediterranea has four swimming pools, including one with a retractable roof, and one for children's use only, and boasts a fitness center and the indulgent beauty salon.
