Costa delays Italy restart to Jan. 31, Deliziosa to assume Smeralda routes

CRUISE Costa Deliziosa_1.jpg
Costa Deliziosa will now sail three-, four- and seven-day all-Italy cruises
Given the current uncertainty about COVID-19 restrictions in the coming weeks, Costa Crociere is canceling cruise departures planned from Jan. 7-31.

Instead, the line aims to resume sailing Jan. 31 from Italy with Costa Deliziosa which will now offer the all-Italy program originally planned for Costa Smeralda, with mini-cruises of three and four days, in addition to seven days.

Costa Smeralda paused

As a result, Costa Smeralda service will pause for a few weeks. Costa said it will communicate new plans for the ship shortly.
