Costa Cruises 2026 World Cruise Sails Roundtrip From Italy And Explores Six Continents

Are you ready for a once-in-a-lifetime experience enriched with Italian hospitality? Departing November 21, 2025, from Trieste (Italy), Costa Deliziosa is setting sail for a journey around the globe that touches 34 countries across six continents. Along the way, guests will enjoy eight overnight calls, 48 ports and immersive shore excursions. 

The ship will sail through the Mediterranean Sea and cross the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans during the 2023 Costa World Cruise. Guests will experience many memorable moments, including transiting the Panama Canal, seeing Easter Island’s Moai heads and sailing along Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. 

“Costa’s world cruise is unique in that it begins before the holidays so guests get to usher in the new year and continue on their travels around the world in one seamless voyage,” said Ruben Perez, general manager for Costa Cruises North America. “This itinerary is designed so that guests can experience dozens of extraordinary destinations – from major cities to ports very few people ever visit – making it a truly international experience both ashore and on board with our Italian-style hospitality.”

Following departure from Trieste, Costa Deliziosa cruises across the Mediterranean to Marseilles, France, and Barcelona, Spain, then on to the Canary Islands by way of Casablanca, Morocco. After crossing the Atlantic Ocean to Barbados, the ship transits the Panama Canal before sailing down the west coast of South America and making way to Easter Island where the Moai statues await.

During the South Pacific crossing, guests will ring in the New Year before visiting the Pitcairn Islands and French Polynesia en route to Sydney, Australia. Costa Deliziosa continues up the east coast of Australia to Papua New Guinea and on to Japan, before heading to South Korea and Taiwan. The ship traverses the South China Sea to China, Vietnam and Singapore, heading east to Sri Lanka and India. 

Costa Deliziosa then sails across the Arabian Sea, through the Suez Canal to Greece, before heading north to Croatia and Italy, ending the journey March 28, 2026.
