Costa Pacifica

Costa Pacifica features some of the best innovations introduced on Costa's ships: the 'Samsara Spa' one of the largest spas at sea at over 23,000ft², a central pool area extending over two decks fitted with a glass roof and a giant movie screen, as well as a Grand Prix race car driving simulator, are some of the delights available to guests during their cruise.

The interiors reflect a love of music, with the My Way restaurant, Ipanema Lounge, Route 66 Sports Bar, La Bamba pool deck and more. There are over 300 original paintings onboard, as well as nearly 6000 prints acquired with the advice of Nicola Salvatore of Studio Cervi & Rossi. Unique to Costa Pacifica is the first recording studio to feature onboard a cruise.

Beyond music, Costa Pacifica will appeal to travellers seeking a wide variety of entertainment options and quality kids facilities.

Ship Facilities

The excellent menus of Costa Pacifica have been put together and signed by the award-winning Italian Chef Ettore Bocchia, the Executive Chef at the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni in Bellagio on Lake Como, which was awarded 1 Michelin star in 2005. From formal dining to buffet-style restaurants, there’s something for everyone onboard Costa Pacifica.

  • New York, New York and My Way restaurants- these are the ship’s main dining rooms, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Guests can expect tasty dishes, quirky décor and friendly service.
  • La Paloma- this is the buffet restaurant, with stations serving pizza, pasta and anything else you could possibly want.
  • Ipanema Grill and Lido Calypso- both these eateries offer casual dining options such as hot dogs, hamburgers and chips.
  • The Club Blue Moon- for gourmet dining, look no further than this innovative venue with its contemporary spin on classic Italian dishes.

When it comes to deciding how your evening should be spent on Costa Pacifica, there are many ways to while away the hours. For a casual drink, the holiday atmosphere of the Aperol Spritz bar is bound to please. Alternatively, if you enjoy live entertainment, then the theatre is a magical way to see Broadway-style shows brought to the high seas. With all sorts of productions, there will be a show that suits every guest onboard.

Alternatively, if you’re looking to really get into the holiday spirit, the ship’s nightclub is the place to go, where a live DJ will play favourite tunes into the early hours of the morning. This is a great place to get drinking, dancing and meeting other cruisers.

If you love spending your holiday lounging by the pool then Costa Pacifica is the cruise ship for you. With four pools, including a splash zone for children, and several jacuzzis across the decks, find your favourite spot to lay back and relax.

The pools aren’t the only highlight of this ship, as guests can also get involved in various sports during their time onboard, from basketball or tennis on the multi-sports pitch, to a leisurely jog around the running track while you admire the views out across the ocean, to a more strenuous workout using the state-of-the-art equipment at the Fitness Center.

After a busy day getting active, there’s also the Samsara Wellness Center where you can spend the afternoon laying back and unwinding with rejuvenating treatments as the world goes by. A bit of peace and quiet can also be found at the adult-only Solarium or a board game at the Card Room.

Before the end of your cruise, don’t forget to visit the Galleria Shops where you can find beautiful jewellery, designer clothing and other souvenirs at duty-free prices.

Customer reviews for Costa Pacifica

I have been on p&o, celebrity, Thompson, this is the worst cruise I've been on the food was terrible as was the entertainment the organisation to got off on shore days was a shambles we had to que for over two hours for a tender in the heat when you go to customer relations to complain they tell you to email when you get home I would not go on a costa cruise if it was free

Good Things: Check in was easy. Check out easy. Variety of music excellent. Waiter service excellent. Boat architecture good, especially the lifts in the central hall atrium. Some evening entertainment good, but not all (see below). Good spa facilities. Generally a cheerful atmosphere on board. Poor Aspects: No movie theatre in afternoons. Only two lectures in English for whole of cruise. No Captain's Reception. Only two "Formal" nights in eleven. Many did not have proper dress. Very poor layout of restaurants My Way and New York New York. Some seats much better than others. Too many rectangular, not enough circular. Lower seating area could not enjoy excellent waiter dancing etc. No wine waiter to order proper drinks. We had to go to bar to get proper Proseco. Food varied from very good to almost inedible. Menu should be posted outside restaurant entrance. No viable alternative to main restaurants. Silly high price for WiFi. Make it free. Breakfast should be available until 11 or 12.00. Rush to make 10 at times. Cabin lights not bright enough for reading in bed. Some evening shows very good but some grim (clown). Lead singers male and female not all that good. Afternoon cake and tea gives impression of budgeting (little choice, not appetising). Charging 5 euros for breakfast in bed is silly and just causes resentment. No "Sailaway Parties" on deck. Hope the above helps in your future planning.

We have never travelled with Costa but always wanted to visit Rio. We have been on several different ships so yes you do compare, so compared to other ships and service we found this terrible. Yes the ship was beautiful but there is more to a ship than beauty. The food was bland, same old thing everyday and the entertainment for your main show after dinner was some what lacking other ships. There was a massive language barrier as the majority on the ship were Italian and Spanish and to be honest we did not feel as though we were made welcome at all on the ship. Lots of things went wrong and thank god Iglu Cruises sorted it out as we were at the other side of the world. So a holiday in which we wanted to go and see was a nightmare and the biggest majority was down to Costa Cruises.
