Costa Cruises has created this “Useful Information” document for our guests to ensure that they have access to important information that will guide them confidently through their cruise, from the time of booking to when they return home. From governmental requirements, gratuities and travel insurance to dining schedules, special dietary needs and clothing to pack, everything guests need to know to be prepared for their cruise is at their fingertips in this document.
For all hotel services provided on board, a mandatory service charge is added daily to the Guest's account. The actual payment will be at the end of the cruise and depends on the duration of the cruise. The predetermined daily amount depends on the currency in use on board and the date of the cruise as follows:
The service charge rates in the table apply to Guests over the age of 14 and are per person, per day. Children between the ages of 4 and 14 will be charged 50% of the above rates. The charge is not applied to children under the age of 4. Guests may choose to add the service charge to the total to be paid when booking.
