With one eye on responsible tourism, Costa Cruises have committed to fully supporting the Municipality of Venice’s scheme, #enjoyrespectvenezia. Costa Victoria is one of the Costa Cruises’ fleet to regularly visit this world-famous city, and so the cruise line will be encouraging those who sail onboard to think respectfully about how they experience the city. The initiative involves the sale of a booklet which aims to educate and inform, and also the promotion of alternative routes into the historic city centre. This latter aspect seeks to lower footfall in some of the more well-known areas, and instead suggest routes which include more unusual sites such as in the arts and culture district; Dorsoduro.
Those seeking a modern, elegant cruise ship need look no further than Costa Victoria. Refurbished in 2004, she teams inspiration from the warmth and charm of Italy with a unique Avant-garde style which truly proved to be a game changer in the cruising industry upon her re-launch.
Guests aboard Costa Victoria are offered a classical European-style cruise with a modern twist no matter where in the world they choose to visit. The pinnacle of her stunning interior decoration has to be the specially produced glass mosaics designed by Emilio Tadinidi – an aspect sure to delight art connoisseurs.
Those keen to see as much of the world as possible can do this from Costa Victoria’s two panorama promenades, introduced to the ship during her refurbishment. These stunning walkways each measure approximately 459 feet in length and are an ideal setting for romantic couples to take a light stroll as the sun sets on the horizon.
With everything from an outdoor running track to an internet café found on board, Costa Victoria will truly become a home from home for anyone seeking to experience cruising in the lap of luxury. The wealth of great activities on board interspersed with exciting port visits around the world make this ship the ideal choice for busy families, couples or singletons alike, with the Squok kids club ensuring that those travelling with children gain all the time and space they need to truly relax on their holiday.
