Costa Classica Entertainment
Entry into the two-level Colosseo Showroom is really impressive, very Roman; inside it's like being in a seashell with a handmade mosaic backdrop framing the production shows, dancing, travel lectures and movies that are held here. The high backed, colorful leather chairs in the main lounge's Piazza Navona Grand Bar drew clusters of guests at all hours. The captain's cocktail party is held here, as well as games and dancing. The Galileo Disco and Observatory at the top of the ship is really spectacular, observatory by day with a clear 360-degreee view of heaven, sea and earth, and a mecca for late night dancing.
Costa Classica Public Rooms
The Ponte Vecchio shop features duty-free Italian designer goods as well as sundries. The library also houses the six-station Internet area, with 17-inch flat screen monitors and e-postcard capability. The 40-seat card room drew bridge fanatics, and the Sanremo Casino has 120 slot machines, along with six roulette wheels, seven Black Jack tables, a mini dice table and five video games. The Puccini Ballroom holds the Piano Bar and private parties were scheduled there, too, during the cruise. The Business/Conference Center has very comfortable chairs with pop-up writing tables and simultaneous translation facilities.
Costa Classica Spa & Fitness
There are two very pleasant pools on Deck 11 and two jacuzzis by the aft pool, as well as two at the Caracalla Spa and Fitness Center, run with Technogym equipment, which allows you to program your workout and take it home. An authentic Roman bath, steam, sauna and the full range of treatments and salon offerings through Steiner round out the offerings. A very pleasant Juice Bar serves smoothies and other nonalcoholic concoctions, and the front windows give really awesome views over the sea or ports of call. A walking and fitness track saw use from early morning until around dinnertime.
