The cruise ships of the Italian Costa shipping company can be easily distinguished from other ships by their towering yellow chimney. Crociere SpA is one of 12 brands of Carnival corporation. Carnival is no slouch when it comes to building new ships.
This also applies to the one that went into service in February 2010 Costa Deliziosa, which with a length of 294 m and 92.720 GT stands well in the forage. According to the ideas of the shipping company, guests should be seduced and charmed on 12 guest decks. The Italian adjective "deliziosa" stands for these terms and much more. Costa Crociere SpA, so the advertisement, wants to give its guests "a unique sensual pleasure".
We were allowed to explore the ship as part of a ship inspection in Amsterdam. For the statisticians: The Costa Deliziosa has a sister ship that was christened on June 5, 2009 Costa Luminosa. Their theme is the "magic of light".
