Costa Cruises knows it's never too late to plan a fantastic summer getaway and, with "flash fares" for North American travelers on select European cruises, now is the time to book an Italian-style cruise. Several Costa ships are sailing throughout the European region for the 2015 summer season, so there are plenty of exciting itineraries.
New homeports and idyllic destinations highlight cruises that visit as many as eight countries in 11 days. Exclusive rates for North American residents start at just $449 per person, double occupancy, for a seven-night cruise option.
"With great deals on exciting itineraries, the strong U.S. and Canadian dollars, and affordable international airfare, this summer is a great time to take a Costa cruise," said Scott Knutson, vice president of Costa Cruises North America. "We want guests to be able to stretch their dollars as far as possible, and there's still time to take one of our summer Europe cruises without breaking the bank."
Guests can enjoy "Italy's Finest" in northern Europe during Costa Luminosa's "Jewels of the Baltic" itinerary -- the first of its kind for Costa. The seven-night cruise is book-ended by overnights in Stockholm, Sweden, and highlighted by an overnight in St. Petersburg, Russia. The ship also calls at the popular Baltic ports of Tallinn, Estonia and Helsinki, Finland. Rates start at $499. Departures are June 20 and 27; July 4, 11 and 25; and Aug. 1 and 8.
