Considering the limitations in place in some European countries, and in light of the epidemiological situation due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Costa Cruises announced updates to its upcoming winter 2020-2021 sailings.

  • The brand’s flagship powered by LNG (liquefied natural gas), Costa Smeralda, will extend her current voyages only in Italy through the end of February 2021, visiting La Spezia, Savona, Cagliari, Messina, Naples, and Civitavecchia-Rome. The one-week itinerary will replace the one in France, Italy, and Spain that the liner would have offered starting from November 14, 2020.
  • Costa Deliziosa will continue with her current week-long itinerary in Italy and Greece until January 3, 2021, visiting Trieste, Katakolon-Olympia, Piraeus-Athens, Heraklion Crete and Bari, instead of visiting Croatia and Montenegro as originally planned.
  • Costa Diadema is due to postpone the start of her long Mediterranean cruises to April 6, 2021, offering 14-day voyages to Turkey and 14-day sailings to Egypt and Greece, as originally scheduled.
  • The newbuild Costa Firenze (currently under construction at Fincantieri's Marghera Shipyard) will be delivered as scheduled in mid-December 2020 but will begin offering her 7-day sailings in France, Spain, and Italy only from February 28, 2021.
  • Costa Favolosa Caribbean cruises are cancelled and the liner will return to sail from April 2, 2021, with mini-cruises in the Mediterranean.
  • Costa Deliziosa 2021 World Tour is also cancelled, with the possibility for passengers to book its 2022 edition.
