Costa Cruises was founded in Genoa in 1854, active in the commerce of fabrics and olive oil with Sardinia. The fleet, during the XIX Century, expanded and the first ships are named after the members of the family.
The real first cruise ship, Franca C., is dated back to 1968 and marks a change in the conception of holiday, proposing many itineraries already at that time.
During the 80’s, the cruise ship changes and becomes a giant hotel on the sea, improving the entertaining activities that become accessible to everyone. On the ships, restaurants, theaters, bars and casinos multiply to meet the tastes of all kinds of travelers.
