As tall as a 20 storey building and just under 300 metres long, Costa Atlantica has a surface area 20 times the size of the Olympic stadium in Rome.And just as impressive is the attention to detail throughout the ship. The names of the decks are inspired by the Italian film director Federico Fellini, with tributes to his art: from the entertaining “Dolce Vita” photos to the original sketches of the film by artist Milo Manara. On board is the Caffè Florian,a faithful reproduction of the famous café in St Mark’s Square in Venice. The Club Restaurant is particularly stunning, located in the highest part of the ship, under the glass ceiling with a view up to the sky,and connected to the lower deck by a glass staircase.
Costa Classica is one of the best loved ships in the fleet, perhaps because of its welcoming and surprising personality or the recently refurbished beauty of its furnishings, or perhaps simply because it is a modern and comfortable ship on which to travel in total relaxation.
The classical style and refinement of its environments make the ship a voyage of discovery in itself. The interior has been designed with care down to the smallest detail, while the upper decks provide an unsurpassable view.

The art of seduction and enchantment, but also the ability to indulge and fulfil every desire. Costa Deliziosa is delicious by name and by nature: a jewel, a new diamond in the fleet, created to provide you with a unique sensory experience.
