Costa offers one of the cruise industry's most comprehensive -- and diverse -- selection of European itineraries. In fact, it's one of the few lines that sails in the Mediterranean year-round. Regions of Europe include the Eastern and Western Mediterranean, Western Europe and the Baltic.
Costa is also exploring new parts of the world. Its winter cruises from Dubai, calling at Bahrain, Oman, Abu Dhabi and Fujairah, are now well established. New ship Costa Luminosa is being based in Dubai for winter 2009/2010, and the line is launching a new series of cruises between Savona and Dubai, to be operated by Costa Europa.
It has also now positioned Costa Allegra and Costa Classica year-round in the Far East. There are two-week itineraries from Singapore and Hong Kong, sailing to Vietnam, China, the Philippines, Malaysia and Brunei, and short cruises from China that visit Japan, aimed at the Chinese market.
Costa Fortuna, Costa Atlantica, Costa Magica, Costa Mediterranea and Costa Romantica are in the Caribbean and Americas for winter 2008/09 and autumn 2009.

Lauderdale calling at various Caribbean islands; Costa Atlantica sails weekly from Guadeloupe for St. Maarten, La Romana and Catalina Island, Tortola, Antigua and St. Lucia.
