Each of the Grand Classica cruise ship deck plans are conveniently combined with a legend (showing cabin codes) and detailed review of all the deck's venues and passenger-accessible indoor and outdoor areas. A separate link provides an extensive information on Grand Classica staterooms (cabins and suites), including photos, cabin plans and amenities by room type and category.
Grand Classica (built 1991 as “Costa Classica”, last refurbished in 2017 October as "Costa neoClassica") is the first of two Classica-class Costa cruise ships – together with Costa neoRomantica. The ship’s name was changed after an extensive refit done in December 2014. As part of the “Costa neoCollection” fleet of three “new” ships, neoClassica was also sister to Costa neoRiviera (now AIDAmira) and was Costa's oldest liner.
- On August 2, 2017, Costa Cruises announced that the neoClassica ship leaves the fleet in 2018. The ship's last Costa cruise itinerary is scheduled for March 4, 2018 (7-day "India and Maldives" from Mumbai India to Male Maldives).
- The decision was made following the 4 new vessels with scheduled deliveries between 2019-2022. Each of the new ships is 183,000 tons, with over 2600 cabins and passenger capacity 6600.
- Renamed to "Grand Classica", in 2018 Costa neoClassica joined the fleet of the Florida-based company "Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line" (owned by NCL's former President Kevin Sheehan). The company's current fleet now consists of two ships - MS Grand Celebration.
Grand Classica cruise ship deck plan has a total of 656 staterooms for 1308 passengers (max capacity is 1680 guests), served by 620 crew/staff. The ship has 10 passenger decks (all named after Bahamian islands), 8 dining options (7 restaurants and food bars, plus room service), 9 lounges and bars, 2 swimming pools (none with a retractable roof), 4 jacuzzies, 8 elevators. The ship has no self-service laundromats (passenger use laundry facilities).
There are numerous artworks of great value on display at various places throughout the ship. The list includes works by Emilio Tadini (mosaic walls in the theater) and Luciano Vistosi (displayed in the Atrium).
