Costa Mediterranea by Costa Cruises
The Panamax size cruise ship Costa Mediterranea was built at the Kvaerner Masa-Yards’ Helsinki shipyard for Costa Crociere. The Costa Mediterranea has an overall length of 292.5m and a maximum breadth of 38.8m. Its draught, is 7.8m.
Costa Mediterranea carries a total of 2,680 passengers (2,114 passengers, based on double occupancy) in a total of 1,057 staterooms. The crew capacity is 902 in 509 crew staterooms. Compared to earlier cruise liners of Panamax-size, the relative number of outside passenger staterooms and staterooms with balcony is very high; 80% of all the 1,057 passenger staterooms face the sea and 70% are fitted with a balcony. This is achieved, compared to the Panamax-ships built in the 1990s, by adding one passenger cabin deck to a more narrow superstructure. In all, Costa Mediterranea features 12 passenger decks plus four decks below for machinery and crew space.
