Overview

Originally built in 1999, Costa neoRiviera relaunched in 2013 as part of the line's neoCollection to bring unique itineraries and more personalized service with a "slow cruising" approach. Passengers on the 1,727-passenger ship can expect longer layovers and overnight stays in ports with themed excursions and more in-depth exploration of destinations. 

On board, cruisers will find facilities and amenities more suited for relaxation than high-octane action. Guests can lounge by the pool, enjoy spa treatments or play games in the casino. Although the ship does feature a kids club, most of the onboard entertainment is geared toward mature adults. When it's time to dine, travelers can choose from four restaurants, including a buffet.

Recent cruisers were somewhat pleased with their accommodations, which include Inside, Ocean View, Balcony and Suite options. All cabins feature standard amenities like flat-screen TVs and minibars. Each of the 94 suites comes with a private balcony. 

In 2018-19, Costa neoRiviera travels to small ports throughout the Mediterranean, the Indian Ocean and the Persian Gulf.
