Costa Cruises has announced the dates for the resumption of cruises on its European itineraries. The line operated with one or two ships for most of last year.

The reopening of the line was originally scheduled for April, but has been delayed until May.

Costa Smeralda and Costa Luminosa sail in May

This decision was taken because restrictions are still in place in Italy and other European countries to prevent the spread of the virus. These actions are unlikely to allow the company to provide its customers with the best cruise experience, particularly on land.

The Costa Smeralda will be the first ship to go back to sea in Italy and is currently scheduled to sail on the 1st. May 2021 scheduled. The ship’s route includes sailings to popular Italian ports such as Savona, La Spezia, Civitavecchia, Naples, Messina and Cagliari. The ship will call at these ports for three- and four-day itineraries.

In June, the Costa Smeralda will once again embark on week-long cruises around the western Mediterranean, with visits to the Italian cities of Savona, Civitavecchia and Palermo, the French city of Marseille and the Spanish cities of Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca.

The second ship Costa Luminosa has been delayed and will return to service on the 16th. Resume May 2021. The ship will sail from Italy to Greece and Croatia as planned.

The itinerary includes ports such as Trieste, Bari, Corfu, Santorini, Mykonos and the beautiful city of Dubrovnik. This is in line with the latest roadmap for the recovery of international tourism in Greece.

Costa’s safety protocol does not include vaccination

As we expected, Costa’s cruises do not require their passengers to be fully vaccinated prior to departure. The cruise line has been conducting its operations with great success since last August and no outbreak has occurred on board the KOVID-19.

It’s worth a read: It has officially been a year since the cruise lines ceased operations.

The company has taken a number of measures, including limiting the capacity on board, discounts for all guests and crew members, temperature checks on departing and returning passengers, excursions to safe ports, physical barricades on board and in cruise terminals, new ways to use the services on board, improved hygiene and medical care, and the use of safety masks where necessary.

Costa Cruises has also announced that all flights will be cancelled until the end of May, with the exception of cruises aboard the Costa Smeralda and Costa Luminosa. Costa is in the process of informing affected customers.

We don’t know if we’ll see any more Costa Coastal cruises in the coming weeks. The company is still working with foreign governments on plans for the cruises, which are scheduled to start in May.

It remains to be seen whether this will also apply to countries not yet provided for, although given the recent increase in the number of ships in the UK and Caribbean, this does not seem unlikely.
