Costa Cruises Overview

People who take the seas to gamble in the Middle East, Asia, and Europe know the Costa Cruises experience, or as the line is called in its native Italy, Costa Crociere. Vessels with onboard casinos include those sailing out of Marina Bay, Singapore; Tianjin, China; Dubai, UAE; Port Louis, Mauritius; Mumbai, India and Savona, Italy.

Starting out with cargo ships in 1854, the company started commercial activities from about 1924 until the first passenger services were begun in 1947 with regular services to South America. The then family-owned company eventually converted their fleet to cruising and became one of the largest operators in Europe before selling to Carnival in the year 2000. The Carnival family of companies now comprises Carnival Cruise Lines, Costa Crociere, Cunard Line, Holland America, Seabourn Cruise Lines, and Windstar Cruises with Costa accounting for about 16% of the parent company's revenue.

Costa Cruises brand currently operates six casino ships and 8 vessels without gaming facilities. All sail under the Italian flag in the waters of the Caribbean, Indian Ocean, Mediterranean, Northern Europe, the Middle East, South East Asia, and South America. None of the casino spaces are huge by international standards but all are well appointed and offer tables and slots. The Mediterranea, sailing out of Savona in Italy, offers the most slots with over 140 machines, while the Atlantica, departing from Tianjin, China offers the most table games with a count of 21.

The table game selection varies by ship but you will usually find blackjack, roulette, and poker, as well as craps on some vessels.

All of the vessels offer fine dining, recreation, entertainment, shopping, sport, and wellness facilities including spas. Some of the ships without casino feature 4D Cinema as part of the kids' package of family fun.
