Overview

Launched in 2009, Costa Pacifica is among Costa's largest ships, carrying up to 3,780 passengers and 1,110 crew members. Those looking for large-ship facilities and entertainment will like the three-story theater, the Grand Prix simulator and the ship's 13 bars. Family-friendly venues include four pools (two of which have retractable roofs) and dedicated kids and teens clubs.

When it comes to dining, guests can choose from five restaurants, including two specialty restaurants that require reservations and an additional fee. Some recent cruisers warned of long buffet lines and cuisine that lacked flavor. Reviewers also noted that while the ship was clean, well-designed and a decent value, it felt overly packed in the public spaces.

With a 3-to-1 passenger-to-crew ratio, the ship offers less personalization compared to smaller Costa ships. On the upside, past guests praised the ship's comfortable accommodations. Although all cabin categories (Inside, Ocean View, Balcony and Suite) come equipped with flat-screen TVs, minibars and 24-hour room service, those who spring for suites (including wellness-oriented Samsara suites and cabins) are granted additional perks like priority boarding and unlimited access to the spa.  

In 2018-19, Costa Pacifica completes a number of transoceanic sailings, one of which travels between Rio de Janeiro and Barcelona. It also sails to destinations throughout Europe and the Caribbean

Disclaimers about ship ratings: A ship’s Health Rating is based on vessel inspection scores published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). If a ship did not receive a CDC score within 22 months prior to the calculation of its Overall Rating, its Health Rating appears as N/A; in such a case, the ship’s Overall Rating is calculated using the average Health Rating of all CDC-rated ships within the cruise line.
