The itinerary includes Savona, Marseille, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Palermo and Civitavecchia/Rome.

The Caribbean is an ideal destination for a break under the sun, between white sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters. Costa Fortuna and Costa Fascinosa will each offer two different alternating one-week itineraries that can be combined into a single two-week long vacation. The proposed formula is the "flight+cruise" package. Costa Fortuna will sail exclusively between the Lesser Antilles. The first itinerary includes Guadeloupe, Tortola, St. Marteen, Antigua, St. Lucia and Martinique; the second Guadeloupe, Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada, St. Vincent, Barbados and Martinique. All calls are at least 10 hours long, in order to experience these beautiful islands with ease, snorkeling, discovering local traditions or savoring Caribbean delicacies.

On the other hand, Costa Fascinosa first itinerary is a full immersion in the Dominican Republic, making long calls, between mangrove forests, coffee plantations, and a full day on Catalina, Costa's exclusive island. Calls include La Romana (Dominican Republic), Ocho Rios (Jamaica), Grand Turk, Amber Cove (Dominican Republic), Samana (Dominican Republic) and Catalina Island (Dominican Republic). The ship’s second itinerary explores six of the Caribbean's most beautiful islands, calling at La Romana (Dominican Rep.), St. Lucia, Barbados, Guadeloupe, Antigua, and the British Virgin Islands, to explore beaches, caves, botanical gardens or swim among the stingrays.

Another destination to experience a warm winter is the United Arab Emirates, where Costa Smeralda will be deployed. The week-long cruises will visit Dubai (UAE), with a two-day call, Muscat (Oman), Doha (Qatar), and Abu Dhabi (UAE), taking guests to experience the ancient traditions, nature as well as the futuristic cities of this area.

The 2025 edition of the Around the World Cruise, aboard Costa Deliziosa, will circumnavigate the globe mostly in the southern hemisphere, visiting Tierra del Fuego, Polynesia, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. For the first time, the departure will be on December 7, 2024, allowing guests to enjoy the holiday season on a cruise. New Year's Eve in Rio de Janeiro will be an unforgettable experience, with fireworks display from Copacabana Beach.
