Exclusive New Itineraries Onboard Costa Fortuna

Costa Cruises has unveiled its new summer 2023 itineraries for the Costa Fortuna cruise ship. For the first time, Costa Cruises will offer two-week cruises in the Mediterranean during summer. The cruise ship will alternate three different itineraries, while ending the season with several shorter cruises to Barcelona and Marseilles.

The first itinerary departs from Savona, Italy, and explores the Greek and Balearic Islands. This itinerary provides a never-seen-before travel experience, combining two of the Mediterranean’s most popular destinations in a single holiday. 

Guests will visit the picturesque towns of Mykonos, Santorini, Kefalonia, Rhodes, and Crete. The cruise also includes a call at Palma de Mallorca in the Balearic Islands and visits to the vibrant cities of Barcelona and Marseille before returning to Savona.

The second itinerary takes guests on a journey to the Canary Islands. They can experience up to five locations across this beautiful archipelago, Arrecife, Puerto del Rosario, Las Palmas, San Sebastian de la Gomera, and Santa Cruz de Tenerife. The cruise also includes stops at Madeira, Malaga, Savona, and on some departures, Civitavecchia/Rome.

The third itinerary explores Turkey, with calls at Istanbul, Izmir, Athens in Greece, and Malta. Guests will also have the chance to explore the historic cities of Savona, Civitavecchia/Rome, Catania, Barcelona, and Marseille. This itinerary also includes an overnight stay in Istanbul for guests departing in September and October.

Lastly, in autumn, from October until mid-November, Costa Fortuna will also offer three- and four-day mini-cruises in the western Mediterranean to Barcelona and Marseille, departing from Savona.

Experience the Mediterranean in Style

The addition of the new Costa Fortuna itineraries will strengthen Costa’s presence in the Mediterranean as the company continues to offer guests a wide range of holiday options.

In addition to the Costa Fortuna, Costa Cruises will operate three ships in the western Mediterranean and two vessels in the eastern Mediterranean, offering one-week cruises.

The Costa Smeralda, Costa Toscana, and Costa Diadema will visit some of the most popular destinations in Italy, France, and Spain. 

Costa Deliziosa will sail from Venice/Marghera and Bari, and will take guests on a journey of discovery through some of the most beautiful islands in Greece, including Mykonos and Santorini.
