Costa Cruises offers sailings throughout Europe, on the Mediterranean Sea and the Arabian Gulf, to and around the Caribbean, to South America, and to various ports that border the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans. Repositioning cruises, intended to move a ship from one market to another at the end of a cruise season, are also offered. One example is a repositioning of a ship from South America to the Mediterranean/Europe during the spring and back again in the fall.
An example for a route in the Eastern Mediterranean includes stops at Ancona, Italy, Ashdod, Israel, Piraeus/Athens, Greece and Costanza, Romania. In the Western Mediterranean, ports could include Malaga, Spain, Ajaccio, Corsica, Barcelona, Spain and Casablanca, Morocco. Arabian Gulf cruises typically visit Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates and Khasab and Muscat in Oman.
Caribbean cruises could visit Cozumel in Mexico, Barbados and St. Kitts in the Antilles and Catalina Island in the Dominican Republic. Sailings in the Far East might visit Malaysia, India or the Philippines. Ships on Pacific Ocean cruises might end up in New Zealand, Australia, Moorea in Polynesia or in Honolulu, Hawaii. In South America, destinations could include Easter Island, Brazil or Buenos, Aires, Argentina.
