Costa Marina Entertainment & Activities

The 170-seat Harry's Bar is very popular, while other watering places that also tend to draw well both day and night are located on the marina and pool decks. The Ballroom, with its panels by Emilio Tadini, is a dramatic setting for dancing and other entertainment. The 380-seat Tropicana Showroom was extensively refurbished in 2002, and the casino is heavily used evenings and on days at sea. The ship also has an intimate (16-seat) card room. The Costa Toga party enlivens one night on each cruise, when passengers turn up in the togas handed out by the line.

Costa Marina Public Rooms

The Trevi Gallery carries elegant Italian goods and sundries, and passengers are enthusiastic about the ship's Internet Cafe, equipped with 17-inch flat screen monitors and video postcard capability. Costa Marina has a chapel, a library and meeting facilities with full technical equipment.

Costa Marina Spa & Fitness

There are separate adult and children's pools on board. The spa and fitness center is enclosed in a kind of glass cocoon, and the ship has three jacuzzis and a beauty center in addition, to a 250-meter jogging track. The Technogym Fitness center has equipment which can be keyed to individual routines, which can be repeated and upgraded with every use, then brought ashore to continue the routine in other Technogym facilities.

Costa Marina For Kids

Centered on the Children's Room, the children's program, which is in session both in the Caribbean and Europe, accommodates young cruisers, ages 3 to 17, from 9 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. except for generous lunch and dinner hours and during days in port. In the Caribbean, Parents Night(s) are offered with supervised dining and entertainment from 6 to 11:30 p.m. without charge; group baby-sitting can be arranged for kids, ages 3 and older, for a fee.
