In keeping with Costa’s commitment to environmental compliance, the Costa Luminosa and the Costa Deliziosa are the first ships in Italy to be equipped for “cold ironing,” the system whereby vessels are plugged into shoreside electrical power, enabling generators to be shut down during stopovers in port. Other environmental highlights include 100% separation of waste onboard including the recycling of aluminum, glass and other waste streams, while water is produced from desalination plants. The Costa Deliziosa also features various additional special emission-reducing measures.
Costa Luminosa and Costa Deliziosa pioneered in the introduction of a new vessel design, which is a Hybrid; taking the best design elements of Spirit-class and Vista-class cruise ships.
Innovations included are the Samsara Spa, a two-level, wellness facility with gym, a thalassotherapy pool, treatment rooms, sauna, Turkish bath and UVA ray solarium; a retractable glass dome and poolside screen at the pool deck; a Grand Prix race car simulator, an 18-hole championship golf simulator; PlayStation World area, where PS3 consoles are offered; three-level theater and a 4D cinema.
