24 Food & Drink Outlets Onboard The Costa Venezia: There's Little Reason To Disembark
Setting sail for the first time on March 8, 2019, the Costa Cruises made its maiden call to Malaysia on April 12, 2019. Overshadowing everything in its vicinity while docked at Port Klang, the behemoth measures 323 metres long, weighs 123,000,000 kilograms, and accommodates 5,200 guests, making it the largest Costa Cruise to cater to the Asian market.
One means by which the Costa Venezia meets the needs of Asian tourists is reflected in the abundance of restaurants, bars, cafés, snack bars and lounges onboard. An example of an 'eating itinerary' might include dim sum for breakfast; wood-fired Neapolitan pizza for lunch; bubble tea as a thirst-quencher; hot pot for dinner; and cocktails as a nightcap.
Here are some highlights:
Canal Grande: The most ornamental of the Italian restaurants onboard, Canal Grande transports diners to the romantic waterways of Venice. Photo opportunities in life-size gondolas await.
Marco Polo: The international offerings here reflect the eponymous explorer's travels on the Spice Route; think dishes amply seasoned with Mediterranean, Persian, and Indian herbs and spices.
Ristorante Casanova: Also named for an Italian, albeit one associated with infamy, Casanova boasts a menu crafted by 'The King of Truffles.' Umberto Bombana is also executive chef of Hong Kong's 8 1/2 Otto e Mezzo, a 3 Michelin star restaurant.
Bella Bar: Seek shelter from the sun here when it gets too hot on deck. Made fresh to order, drinks run the gamut from fresh juices to Taiwanese bubble tea.
Lounge Delle Stelle: Get dressed up to the nines before spending the evening at this swanky venue. Champagne and cocktails flow freely at this bar dedicated to the art of cinema.
