For a taste of Italy at sea, hop onboard Costa Venezia and enjoy the activities on offer. Modelled on the famous Venice Lido, the Lido deck is a glamorous location to laze by the pool or swim a few laps.

Kids will also not be disappointed as they release their inner Tarzan by flying across the ship on the elevated ropes course or test out their golf skills at the mini golf course.
The ship was beaytyfull, cabins plenty off room, staff were excellent, apart from customer services,they didn’t want to know when you had a problem. The tour to relax on the beach in Aquaba a was a rip off €106 for 2 to sitt on a sun bed for 4 hours nothing included, except scruffy Sun towels . We.missed lunch on the ship.because off the timings. It was a proper ripoff. We did a tour of Jerusalem, this was excellent and the guide was brilliant. It was well worth the money. Would recommend this tour. We complained when we got back on board to the tour directors, they told us to ring Costa when we got back home. The food was for Chinese & Italian, they didn’t really cater for British, although there was plenty off choice, but lots of fish, which we didn’t like. It was also not very warm. The itinerary was excellent, we really enjoyed the places we visited. I don’t think we would use Costa again.
