Editor's note: This ship is no longer sailing as part of the Costa fleet.
The 2,114-passenger Costa Atlantica might be familiar to cruisers who have traveled with Carnival before. It’s a near sister of parent company Carnival Cruises’ Carnival Spirit. It’s also the decorative progeny of Carnival’s longtime interior designer Joe Farcus, known for his over-the-top flourish of design and color. In 2015, the Atlantica was given $18 million worth of modifications and upgrades and is now permanently based in Shanghai.
