Endless opportunities to explore the Mediterranean

The Mediterranean is beautiful in every season, but the fall is an especially ideal time to visit because of the weather and reduced visitors. With a choice of 250 cruises, Costa Cruises is making it easier than ever to explore the idyllic Mediterranean

With unique itineraries, superb Italian cuisine, sommelier-selected wine lists and unbeatable spa and wellness programming Costa Cruises is the ideal choice to beat the crowds and enjoy the cooler temperatures in the Mediterranean during the fall season.
