The Costa savings are available in the western Mediterranean on flagship Costa Diadema and in the eastern Mediterranean on Costa Luminosa. Fares for the week-long voyages are under $100 per person, per day.
Costa Diadema sails round-trip Barcelona to Marseille, Palma de Mallorca, Savona, Civitavecchia (Rome) and La Spezia (gateway to Cinque Terra, Pisa and Florence). Costa Luminosa sails round-trip from Trieste, Italy, for Katakolon (Olympia), Piraeus, Split, Dubrovnik and Venice.
'The Mediterranean is one of the most romantic regions in the world, and Costa is making it an affordable gift to give this Valentine's Day,' said Scott Knutson, vp sales and marketing, Costa Cruises North America.
The special rates are available on a dozen Costa Diadema dates from March through May. Travelers who want to spend more time in Rome can plan a pre- or post-cruise stay in the city and take the same itinerary, round-trip Civitavecchia. Rates start at $499 per person. Eligible Costa Luminosa sailings are in June, priced from $599 per person.
