Review of Costa Deliziosa

Launched in 2010, Costa Deliziosa is the second of Costa Cruises Luminosa-class ships, together with Costa Luminosa.

History - construction and ownership

Costa Cruises is a Genoa-headquartered subsidiary company owned by Carnival Corporation. Costa is Europe's second largest cruise line (after MSC) with year-round operations in the Mediterranean. Costa was founded in 1854 as cargo shipping company. It started passenger shipping services in 1947, with regular Transatlantic crossings between Europe (Italy) and South America. In 2000, Costa Cruises was acquired by Carnival Corporation (shipowner).

Costa Deliziosa cruise ship

The 92,720-ton, 3,570-passenger cruise ship Costa Deliziosa is a twin vessel to Costa Cruises Luminosa ship. This huge and warm liner with simple design is easy to navigate. Deliziosa debuted in 2010, introducing the evolution of retro-style for Costa cruise lines. The line which is based in Italy and is much European-influenced, has produced mega-sized cruise vessels as the 114,500-ton Costa Pacifica and Costa Serena (the biggest-ever in fleet).

Besides the ship's staff and crew, Costa cruise passengers are also served by Peper robots - 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 face expressions.

Cruise itinerary program

Costa Deliziosa itinerary program is based on a World Cruise from Europe, spring cruises to the Eastern/Western Mediterranean and Black sea, summer Holly Land and North Africa voyages.

Cabins

Costa Deliziosa has a total number of 1130 cabins (of which 110 Suites, 662 Balcony, 180 Inside rooms) in 13 grades. Most Costa Deliziosa staterooms are 185-sq.foot Balcony rooms - 68% of all staterooms have a private balcony. 23 are the wheelchair accessible cabins, 52 - the Spa Staterooms (located on Deck 8). The largest aboard Costa Deliziosa are the Grand Suites (455 ft2).

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

Costa Deliziosa's MDR on Deck 2 is named Ristorante Albatross. It is a two-deck-high, vibrantly red venue in the aft of the ship with gorgeous views. What is also great about the layout of Albatross is the way it is designed into smaller areas, each with different ambience. The onboard buffet restaurant is Ristorante Buffet Muscadins located on Deck 9. It is open for breakfast, lunch and tea (late afternoon snack). Muscadins offers a range of stations with European and North American favorites. There is a pizza counter with offerings that are more American than Italian. The buffet is also open on some nights for dinner. Costa Deliziosa also offers complimentary 24-Hour Room-Service.

Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport

Costa Cruises Deliziosa and Luminosa ships are built on new smaller for Costa lines design.

Costa Deliziosa wiki

  • Costa cruise ship Deliziosa was christened in Dubai UAE (Port Rashid cruise ship terminal) during the Inaugural cruise from Savona to Dubai (February 5, 2010). And because it's a Muslim territory, at the ceremony a bottle of juice was used instead of the traditional Champagne "bottle smashing". The ceremony matched the Port Rashid cruise ship terminal opening.
  • Deliziosa cruise ship is the 2nd of the line's two Luminosa-class vessels. Her sister in the fleet is Costa Luminosa. The ship's design is described as a hybrid between the Spirit and Vista classes and their best features. Both Deliziosa and Luminosa are smaller then the typical for the Costa fleet vessels and built to Panamax specifications (able to transit through Panama Canal).
  • There are 340 original artworks and 4760 prints on board. Largest cabin on the Deliziosa ship is the Panorama Suite (sized 672 ft2 / 64 m2, aft location, with a wraparound balcony).
  • On December 21, 2015, the ship made its maiden call at Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale) Florida.
