Review of Costa Pacifica

Launched in 2009, Costa Pacifica is the third Concordia-class Costa ship, together with the sunk Costa Concordia, Costa Favolosa, Costa Serena and Costa Fascinosa.

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 Pacifica cruise ship

The 114,288-ton, 2,838-passenger cruise ship Costa Pacifica is comparatively familiar to Carnival Conquest-class fans. Pacifica ship design is essentially the same, but the interior was made by Joe Farcus – the long-time famous Carnival interior architect and designer, now leader of the new-build Costa team. All his vessels are theme designed, and Pacifica’s theme is music – fully exposed in her decor with artwork (antique violins, prints of scores) and decks called after different music styles. And the most interesting act is that the music theme is carried through ship’s activities. The exceptional to Pacifica music maestro and 1st-ever cruising recording studio help travelers learn how to play the guitar, piano, viola or drums during their vacation.

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 Pacifica itinerary program is based on Central and Western Mediterranean cruises. In spring Favolosa crosses the Atlantic and in summer offers Baltic deals.
