Costa Cruises is now also running their More or Less promotion—dubbed Our Simplest Sale of the Year. As the name implies, this promotion makes savings super easy. This simplified process lets travelers create their own cruise experience, based on the factors that are most important to them. The flat-rate “Best Fare” option is ideal for those who want the most affordable fare and the flexibility to make additional choices regarding meals and excursions once they are aboard.
The other option is the Amenity Fare, which is a great choice for families traveling with children. Kids under age 17 sail free when accompanied by two full-fare adults, and guests receive onboard credit that can be used for luxuries and incidental purchases such as drinks, spa treatments and shopping.
Whichever selection you pick, the end result is a completely customized itinerary that is sure to please because it is tailored according to the guest’s individual preferences.
Despite the savings these special deals offer, they each include all of the countless amenities and luxurious perks you would always expect from Costa Cruises. All of that wrapped up in a cruise environment that serves as your own personal oasis of bliss and comfort.
