Costa Mediterranea is a Spirit-class cruise ship operated by the Costa Crociere cruise line. She was constructed at the Kvaerner Masa-Yards (currently Aker Finnyards) in Helsinki, Finland at a cost of over €400 million.  On June 16, 2003 she departed on her maiden voyage from Genoa to Spain and Portugal.

Public rooms aboard Costa Mediterranea such the ten floor high Maschera d'Argento atrium, were inspired by Italy's 16th and 17th century palazzi and decorated to reflect the ship's motto "Mai visto niente di simile" (You've never seen anything like it).

Where did you cruise to? Almost every vacation we take is a cruise somewhere. We love it!

I embarked in Barbados, sailed to Saint Lucia, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Sint Maarten, Puerto Rico and US Virgin Islands, it was fun ;)

Brenda Perez said...

WOW!!! We have not been to Barbados, St. Kitts & Nevis or Saint Lucia yet. Someday for sure! I hope you bought and sent yourself some postcards to remind you of your trip. ;)

Oh yes, I sent myself a card from each place, heheh. The ship cruised to Philipsburg in Sint Maarten but I went to the French part, too, to mail a card. Sounds a bit crazy ;) Saint Lucia was my favourite stop, it is such a beautiful island and I do want to go there again for a few days.
