Costa Smeralda is born, the sea has found its “Bel Paese”

Costa Smeralda is the ship that is the symbol of beauty, style and Italian hospitality. Its spaces take the name of and inspiration from the squares of the “Bel Paese” of Italy: as you walk down the wide stair case of the stern, it will feel like you are strolling through Piazza di Spagna, and browsing through shops, bars and restaurants to glimpse the liveliness of magical places like those of Trastevere, with the privilege of a unique perspective, that of the sea. An unforgettable experience to share with the people you love. And, with added value: experience a cruise at the forefront of environmental protection, thanks to an LNG combustion system, the cleanest in the world.
