About Costa Marina

The Costa Marina, which debuted in the early 1990s, is no longer marketed in North America. Her refurbishment was completed in March 2002 when she was upgraded for her new role as a ship marketed exclusively for German passengers ("La Deutsche Vita"). Glass plays a very large role in her design, from a glass-enclosed roof to a slanted wall of glass with a curved surface over which water runs into the swimming pool. The passenger cabin side of the refurbishment included replacement of the carpeting, curtains and upholstery. The disco was converted into a club-restaurant with live music filling the dance floor instead, and all signage on board was changed. At the same time, the open decks were renovated with teak planking. Costa Marina sails Europe in the summer and the Caribbean in winter.

Fellow Passengers

The ship is dedicated entirely to the German market.

Costa Marina Dress Code

Dress is mainly resort casual with two formal nights per seven-day cruise in addition to the signature Toga Party.

Costa Marina Gratuity

Gratuities in Europe and the Caribbean run $2.50 per person, per day for the waiter, $1.50 per person, per day for the cabin steward, $1 per person, per day for the head waiter.
