Costa Smeralda will sail to Italian destinations on three-, four- or seven-day cruises

Costa Cruises is to restart sailing on 27 March, offering cruises to Italian destinations on Costa Smeralda.

The ship will sail three- and four-day mini-cruises or a seven-day cruise, calling at Savona, Le Spezia, Civitavecchia, Naples, Messina and Cagliari. She will then return to sailing one-week cruises in the western Mediterranean from 1 May, with visits to Savona, Civitavecchia and Palermo in Italy, Marseille in France, and Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca in Spain.

Costa Luminosa will also resume service, departing from Trieste from 2 May for Bari, Italy. She will then embark on a series of one-week cruises in Greece and Croatia.

Costa is working with national and local authorities in the countries included on the itineraries of its ships outside of Italy to ensure it can restart cruise operations with enhanced health and safety measures. The Costa Safety Protocol will include measures such as limited guest capacity, swab tests for guests and crew, temperature check and protected shore excursions, among others.
