Description

Costa Smeralda, a ship in the Helios class, is completely different with respect to the AIDAnova in terms of the distribution of the hotel areas onboard. Just like in the AIDAnova, the major technological innovation is the duel-fuel motor apparatus that allows the use of liquefied natural gas as a combustible. From the point of view of interior decorating there has been a complete change from the Costa ships of the past. The interior design was coordinated by Adam Tihany and is focused on the beauty of Italian style. A special mention to the open walkway on deck 8 that allows guests to come into close contact with the sea.

Visita nave 20 Dicembre 2019

I liked

Innovazione, arredamento, distribuzione degli interni, layout cabine. Museo del Design da non perdere

I didn't like

Qualità cibo buffet, assenza di frigobar in cabina

commento

Ho avuto la possibilità di visitare Costa Smeralda durante la giornata di presentazione a Savona. La nave è bella, innovativa e ben studiata negli arredi e nella distruzione degli spazi. Le cabine razionali ma complete di ogni comodità, bello e spazioso il bagno con ampio box doccia, peccato solo per la mancanza del frigobar. Offerta culinaria senza precedenti in casa Costa, qualità al ristorante buona, al buffet può migliorare. Da non perdere una visita al CoDe.

Una ventata d’aria fresca!

I liked

Nave innovativa

I didn't like

Piscina coperta troppo piccola per la portata massima della nave

commento

Una ventata d’aria fresca in casa Costa. Un prodotto innovativo e totalmente differente rispetto alle altre navi della flotta che svecchia la classica immagine della compagnia con aree comuni d’impatto e altamente tecnologiche. A bordo spariscono i sontuosi ristoranti a due piani in favore di quattro grandi aree tematiche e di svariate opzioni di ristorazione à la carte così come sparisce anche il teatro principale, sostituito dal Colosseo - cuore pulsante della nuova ammiraglia - e dallo Show Lounge Sanremo. Quest’ultimo in modo particolare non mi ha entusiasmato in quanto la visibilità nelle aree laterali è molto scarsa ed è compensata da schermi led. Ottima l’idea di proporre più volte a settimana e in diversi orari della giornata gli spettacoli per dare la possibilità a tutti gli ospiti di assistervi. Nel complesso la valutazione finale è più che positiva e la nave, con la grande offerta, è più che consigliata!

Esperienza unica su Costa Smeralda

I liked

ambienti e gentilezza del personale

commento

Splendida nave sia all'interno che all'esterno. Lo staff è stato molto gentile ed efficiente. Interessantissimi spettacoli teatrali. Cabine molto curate e pulite. Bellissima la Spa, dove io e il mio compagno ci siamo rilassati con un bel massaggio. Sono sicura che ci ritorneremo per un'altra splendida esperienza!

Gelungene Kreuzfahrt Anfang Februar 2020

I liked

Hochwertige Einrichtung, gemütliche Bars, große Auswahl der Restaurants . Shows der Latintänzer und Tanzkurse

I didn't like

Die Glasscheibe im Duschbad, die nur durch einen Vorhang zur Kabine verdeckt war.

commento

Die Costa Smeralda ist ein sehr elegantes und schickes Schiff. Die ganze Einrichtung passt farblich sehr gut zueinander. Es gibt viel Abwechslung durch die verschiedenen Bars und Restaurants. Die Aussendecks sind hervorragend gestaltet.

Costa Smeralda: Wonderful new cruise ship!

I liked

Beautiful

I didn't like

commento

Costa Smeralda is one of the most beautiful ships I have seen. There are wonderful interiors, very well kept and with really quality materials. The ship is very large but nevertheless it feels very good and you never have problems. Good service, excellent cleaning and courtesy of the staff. I recommend it!

Costa Smeralda

I liked

Eleganza, cucina, pulizia, gentilezza del personale, distribuzione dei vari locali/ristoranti/negozi

I didn't like

Mancanza di indicazioni nei piani x l' ubicazione delle strutture(ristoranti e uffici), tempi lunghi di attesa

commento

Nave molto bella però nei piani mancano le indicazioni come raggiungere i ristoranti e gli uffici, inoltre la gestione degli ascensori è stile vecchio e sorpassato

The Costa Smeralda is a very beautiful ship and a great novelty in the Costa fleet. It is elegant, welcoming, with spaces that are well planned and a truly beautiful design. All the materials appear to be of the highest quality and the atmosphere is always cordial. The cabins with a balcony are spacious, clean and comfortable.

Very beautiful cruise ship!

I liked

Beautiful areas, nice services

I didn't like

commento

The Costa Smeralda was a real surprise. A very beautiful ship, with well-kept spaces and furnished with taste and practicality. The buffet is excellent with different islands that mean there is never a line and the other restaurants are excellent. The external areas are just as pleasant and spacious, perfect for passengers both big and small. I think that it is an excellent ship for families, built with taste and a lot of efficiency.

Bellissima nave, è stato un piacere scoprirla angolo dopo angolo. Fatta bene, tante attrazioni, sia dentro che esterni (con piscine riscaldate!). Molta cortesia da parte del personale e buona cucina. Un salto di qualità in Costa. La consiglio.

Costa Smeralda: molto positiva

I liked

commento

Una delle crociere Costa migliori, e non soltanto per la bellezza della nave. Anche servizio migliore, più cortese e disponibile. Ristorazione buona, senza eccessi ma sempre curata. Belle cabine, pulite in modo impeccabile. Ci sono molte cose a pagamento, però i prezzi non sono esagerati (a parte la Spa). Siamo stati molto bene, anche i ragazzi hanno trovato divertimento e tante amicizie.

commento

Ho viaggiato con le navi gemelle di Aida e sapevo cosa più o meno Costa Smeralda potesse offrire. Sono tuttavia rimasto sorpreso dall'eleganza di certi ambienti, dalla varietà dei locali, dalla bellezza degli arredi. Mi sembra ben organizzata anche la distribuzione degli spazi, dei ristoranti, della zona buffet. Non ho visitato la Spa internamente e nessuna cabina, ottimo invece il pranzo al buffet dove si servono i piatti da parte del personale e si cuociono molte pietanze sul momento. Spero di approfondire presto!

We were on the Costa Smeralda for a week long cruise in the Mediterranean with our family. We weren’t familiar with Costa and it was our first cruise using this company. The service is great and the ship is really large and beautiful. There are many spaces for everyone, both kids and adults. It was a truly positive experience.

Visita molto piacevole

I liked

Nuovo stile di arredi più sobrio, elegante e raffinato. Docce senza tende ma con vetri. Bellissima Spa.

I didn't like

Dimensioni delle cabine più piccole rispetto allo standard delle altre navi.

commento

Nonostante io preferisca le navi di dimensioni minori, Costa Smeralda mi è piaciuta molto e non vedo l’ora di tornare per scoprire ciò che offre. L’ideale sarebbe una mini crociera senza scendere mai dalla nave.

We decided to try out the Costa Smeralda to check out the new features and we have to say that it was a very pleasant experience. The interiors are elegant and modern with lots of places to explore not only during the day but also in the evening. The restaurants and cuisine are good and varied and the cleanliness is always impeccable.

Natale su Costa Smeralda

I liked

I didn't like

commento

Interessati dalla nuova nave abbiamo prenotato questa crociera in super last minute. Devo dire che a parte qualche confusione al ristorante e al buffet, è molto innnovativa ed offre ambienti simpatici, vivaci, ben studiati. Forse pochi ristoranti speciali rispetto alle navi moderne, ma cabine confortevoli, servizio gentile e ottima pulizia. Una nave Costa diversa.

Crociera su Costa Smeralda

I liked

Nave innovativa

I didn't like

Un pò di confusione in alcuni momenti

commento

Devo dire che Costa Smeralda è davvero molto bella. Tantissimi locali, arredamento curato, ambienti confortevoli. Cabina piuttosto standard, ma sempre pulita ed impeccabile. Si mangia abbastanza bene, il servizio non è particolarmente attento ma ci sono davvero tanti passeggeri da gestire. Nel complesso esperienza positiva, mancava in Costa un pò di novità e di modernità.
