THE COSTA SAFETY PROTOCOL, FOR YOU

To make you experience an unforgettable holiday in complete serenity, our health and safety team and a group of independent scientific experts have developed the Costa Safety Protocol. Furthermore, we are the first cruise company to have obtained the Biosafety Trust Certification from Rina and we carefully follow the safety instructions of the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA).

Here is the Costa Safety Protocol

Actions to further protect your health including new operational procedures adapted in response to the COVID-19 situation and in compliance with national and international health standards.

1. EXTRA ATTENTION FOR EVERY SINGLE PASSENGER

CHECK-IN ONLINE

Check-in is carried out completely online and opens 72 hours before your departure. To receive your cruise ticket, you must fill in a self-certification questionnaire regarding your health status.

STAGGERED BOARDING TIMES

The boarding times are staggered to facilitate compliance with the correct social distancing rules and to ensure safe boarding. This is why punctuality is so important.

CONTROL AT THE TERMINAL

A quick health screening awaits you at the boarding terminal, which includes body temperature control and a Covid diagnostic test (swab), provided for all the guests*.

2. A SMART VACATION

MYCOSTA

The best way to ensure your on board safety is to check-in in advance. Visit www.mycosta.com before leaving, save time so you won’t have to check-in at the desks!

QR CODES

Your smartphone is a fundamental travel companion! Thanks to the QR codes you can now enjoy a wonderful vacation with complete digital security and it also means less paper to throw away!

ONBOARD MONITORS

There are other ways you can stay informed about what’s new on board: You’ll find digital screens and interactive monitors in public areas, a dedicated Info TV channel in the cabin and the new Call Me service, plus a convenient personalized assistance via the cabin phone.

3. MORE SPACE FOR YOU

REDUCED OCCUPANCY

The number of passengers onboard has been reduced to make social distancing easier and guarantee a safe and pleasant cruise.

REDESIGNED ENVIRONMENTS

The common areas and relaxation rooms have been remodeled so that they fully meet the safety standards you deserve: this means they are accessible to only a limited number of people at a time.

SAFETY SIGNS

There are signs in all high-traffic areas of the ship and the on-board staff will help you to get around easily and to maintain the correct safety distances.

4. ENJOY THE WHOLE SHIP IN SAFETY

PROTECTIVE MASKS

Just as on land, when in public areas while on board, protective masks must be worn By doing this, you protect your own health and that of your fellow travelers!

HAND SANITIZER

To help you keep your hands clean and sanitized at all times, in all the main areas of the ship you will find numerous sanitizing gel dispensers.

CREW DEVICES

The crew too have the necessary protective equipment to be able to do their job to the highest health standards.

SPACED OUT TABLES

Our restaurants are set up to welcome you in the best way while respecting social distancing. To ensure the safety of all our guests, we ask you to only sit at the table with the travel companion(s) included in your booking.

EXTENDED MEAL TIMES

Also, to order breakfast and lunch you can access the main restaurants entirely at your leisure, whenever you want, with a longer time slot than usual.

SMARTPHONE MENU

Scan the QR code that you will find at the tables, in the restaurants and bars, to check the daily food and drink menus directly on your smartphone. If you decide to order at the counter, follow the safety signs.

LIMITED GROUPS

Costa excursions are totally safe: we have set out new procedures to ensure social distancing, thanks to limited group size and the use of disposable headphones to make for a better experience.

SAFETY ON BUSES

Our buses are sanitized after every use. Social distancing is guaranteed by reducing occupancy. In addition, our tour guides always wear protective masks.
