All cabins provided with a shower in the bathroom, twin beds which easily convert to a queen sized bed, a hairdryer, safe, desk, and flat screen TV. Balcony Staterooms also feature sofa beds as well as paid for minibars. Wifi is available in all staterooms for an additional charge as well as in public areas. Suites receive free 24-hour room service, slippers, bathrobes plus drinks package and personal valet.
COSTA VENEZIA offers a total of 15 restaurants and 6 main bars. The food offerings consist of classic Italian dishes, fast food, traditional Asian and Chinese cuisine. Italian food includes the menu of 3-star Michelin chef Umberto Bombana in Casanova Restaurant. However, authentic Chinese cuisine is available in the main and speciality restaurants at any time.
COSTA VENEZIA was specially designed to showcase Italian food, lifestyle, and culture, which is why the ship’s atrium is modelled on the St Mark’s Square in Venice and there are a couple of real gondolas onboard. The Gondola Lounge is where travellers can have a virtual reality trip through the port city in a gondola and the Grand Canal Restaurant features a “canal-side” walk to admire the Bridge of Sighs – Ponte dei Sospiri. The restaurant replicates the architecture of Venetian alleys and guests are served by waiters specially dressed as 17th century Venetians. Costa Venezia voyages also offer a Venice Carnival party night with Italian entertainment and Venetian masks.
Every night there are shows in the theatre with a focus on Italian productions like Venezia Innamorata, which is based on the life of Venetian lover Giacomo Casanova. The Lounge delle Stelle is where guests can join Costa Venezia Film Festival, being entertained with songs from popular films and watching Venice Film Festival movies.
