Italian drag gay cruise


There is no airport in Savona so most passengers beginning or ending cruises there normally fly into or out of Genoa, or Milán-Malpensa Airport which lies 190km to the north. Shuttle transfers are available from the airport to Milano Centrale train stations from where there are some direct trains to Savona and others which require a change in Genoa.


Italian Gay Party Cruise


Cruise ship passengers who are beginning or ending their cruise in Savona will find a selection of modern hotels in the historic centre or can stay in a beach hotel at the Playa de Luna resort to the south. A little further south but still only 15km from the cruise port is the lovely resort of Spotorno which is highly recommended for a few nights’ stay.

An evening in Savona is best spent dining on Ligurian seafood dishes at a local restaurant such as Ristorante Verso il Maestrale (Calata Pietro Sbarbaro) which overlooks the harbour. Alternatively, you can head for one of the city’s many family-run trattorias such as Pizzeria Vesuvio (Piazza Goffredo Mameli) which serves excellent pizzas and pasta dishes to a mainly local clientele.

Costa Smeralda is synonymous with the Italian dolce vita: it is carefree, it is the breeze that ruffles your hair, and it is always overlooking the sea.

Costa Smeralda cares for the environment, paving the way for responsible innovation and increasingly sustainable travel.


Costa Smeralda Piaza di Spagna


Named after Sardinia's popular coast Costa Smeralda is the first ship to use the world’s “cleanest” fossil fuel, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), which will significantly cut down on gas emissions. Groundbreaking innovations continue to impress throughout the ship; each deck is colored with unique Italian cities.

With the architectural design, the animation on board, the proposed gastronomic wealth and many other features you won't have time to get bored, there are always things going on for everyone. The spaces are inspired by the Italian squares: the big stern stairs will give you the impression that you are in Rome, in Piazza di Spagna. Enjoy beautiful Italian design, style and cuisine.


Costa Smeralda dining


You can even experience Italian city views in Costa Smeralda staterooms via mesmerizing photographic panels with embedded televisions. The grandiosity of Italian tradition continues floor-to-ceiling windows to let more light in, geometric “mod” wallpaper, premium Italian furniture, and faux marble bathroom walls.

The concept that represents “Italy’s Finest” continues in the fine international cuisine aboard Costa Smeralda, as well as in the spaces of the ship itself — by some of Italy’s most impressive architects and designers.

Redefinition Mediterranean gay cruise 2023 map


Rome, Italy gay cruise

Day 1 - Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy
Located in cove, protected to the north by Mignone and south by the Marangone, the Civitavecchia port was built on the Tyrrhenian coast in Etruscan times and still preserves traces of this history. In particular, the Michelangelo fort and the old town with its 9th-century walls bear witness to the splendour of a medieval past. We have to take advantage of this port to visit Rome, the grandiose capital with its world-famous monuments: the Forum, the Colosseum, the Pantheon, Trajan's column, St Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, Piazza Venezia, the Spanish Steps and so much more.


Italian gay cruise  - Savona, Italy

Day 2 (1) - Savona, Italy
Located on the Ligurian coast of Italy between Monaco and Genoa, Savona has served as an important port since it was occupied by the Romans in 180 BC. Above the port of Savona, the Priamar Fortress greets our departure and arrival of the Costa Toscana ship sailing in the Mediterranean. Genoa and its aquarium are nearby. The port of Savona is one of the prettiest of the Italian Riviera. The lovely climate, summers that are never to hot, mild winters and the exceptional beauty of the sea near the town makes Savona an excellent base to set out to explore Liguria. Savona is notable for the Priamar Fortress, which has dominated the town since the 16th century, and also for its historic centre where you can visit Savona Cathedral. A stop in Savona can also be an opportunity to visit the nearby city of Genoa and its narrow, picturesque streets, known as “caruggi”.


Mediterranean gay cruise - Marseilles, France

Day 3 (2) - Marseilles, France
A pleasant thing to do is simply sit down at one of the cafes overlooking the port of Marseilles and, sipping a Pastis, observe the landscape and the people who inhabit it. Also called the "Porpoise City ", Marseille is France’s sunniest town, charming with its gullies where you can swim, its history and culture and restaurants with cosmopolitan cuisine. You cannot leave without having first toured on the “Cours Julien”, the street for shopping. The port of Marseille is perhaps a typical tourist destination, but it deserves to be visited for the ferry that leaves from the Town Hall and the old church, which replaced a Templar building.


Barcelona, Spain gay cruise

Day 4 (3) - Barcelona, Spain
A top European center for art, architecture, design and cuisine, this stylish city has its own language and culture. The soul of old Barcelona is its Gothic Quarter; outside the medieval district, discover iconic landmarks and more. Vying for your attention in Catalonia's visually stunning capital are the magnificent medieval buildings of the lively Gothic quarter and the exotic creations of architect Antoni Gaudi - the Sagrada Familia Temple and Parc Güell, to name just a few.


Mallorca gay cruise

Day 5 (4) - Palma de Mallorca, Spain
The Spanish island of Mallorca offers towering mountains and dramatic cliffs rising over clear, blue water — but its hidden gem is Palma de Mallorca, the island's capital and largest city, where you'll find quaint historic streets, Gothic castles and gastronomic delights. Cruise to Palma de Mallorca and check out one-of-a-kind Palma Cathedral: The 14th-century Gothic spires of exterior contrast the modernist interior designed by in the early 1900s by Gaudi.


Italian gay cruise

Day 6 (5) - Fun Day at Sea!
While at sea, take the time to recharge before the next adventure. Lounge by the pool, be spoiled at the spa, taste the delicacies or explore the venues on-board, until we arrive at the next amazing destination.


Palermo, Sicily gay cruise

Day 7 (6) - Palermo, Sicily
Extravagant and vibrant, Palermo invites you into an array of flavors, colors and bustling streets. Set in a peaceful bay surrounded by Sicily's fertile basin Conca d'Oro, named for the golden color of the orange groves, the city bears traces of historic invasions by the Arabs, Greeks, Romans, Spanish and Normans. Head to La Vucciria market to sample almonds, marzipan, spices, peppercorns and candied fruits. Then, explore the historic center — visit the Cathedral, which dates back to 600 AD and features Gothic, Moorish and Baroque architectural elements.


Gay Rome cruise

Day 8 (7) - Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy
Rome is one of the most popular cities in Europe. It was the capital of the Roman Empire and later the Papacy. Rome has been at the heart of so much history, both good and bad, throughout the ages. It’s like an open-air museum. You’ll find a decent gay scene in Rome, although it’s smaller and more discrete than you might expect. You’ll find more clubs and late-night events than gay bars. The gay scene in Rome tends to pick up later at night.


Savona Italy gay cruise

Day (8) - Savona, Italy
Behind Savona's sprawling port facilities, the city's unexpectedly graceful medieval centre is well worth a stop. Among the old-town treasures to survive destruction by Genoese forces in the 16th century are the baroque Cattedrale di Nostra Signora Assunta and the lumbering Fortezza del Priamàr. There's also a nice urban buzz, with lots of new shops, bars and restaurants regenerating the old centre. Don't miss an opportunity to visit the capital of the Italian region of Liguria the nearby city of Genoa.
