Costa Victoria (built 1996, last refurbished in 2018) is the Sky-class vessel in the Costa cruise line’s fleet. In this class, Victoria is together with the NCL ships Norwegian Sky and Norwegian Sun. The NCL Sky ship was originally ordered by Costa Crociere as “Costa Olympia”, but finished as “Norwegian Sky”.
Costa Victoria cruise ship deck plan has a total of 964 staterooms for 1928 passengers (max capacity is 2274 guests), served by 820 crew/staff. The ship has 10 passenger decks (all named after famous classical Italian operas), 5 restaurants, 12 lounges and bars, 3 swimming pools (indoor and adults-only, in the Spa), 4 jacuzzies, 12 elevators. Victoria has no self-service laundromats on board.
Victoria has glass mosaics (by E. Tadinidi) and numerous other artworks (including by A. Vignali) and prints on display at various places throughout the ship.
Besides the ship's staff and crew, Costa cruise passengers are also served by Peper robots - the latest cyborg technology implemented fleetwide in 2016. These humanoid robots greet and guide passengers upon embarkation. They also assist them throughout the cruise by providing information and tips on onboard dining, entertainment, enrichment program (workshops, pre-scheduled events), casino and shopping promotions, shore excursions and tours. Pepper robots are mobile and communicate in 3 languages (English, German, Italian). They can also interpret human emotions by analyzing voice tones and facial expressions.
