On Shore with Costa

With more than 2,500 shore excursions to choose from, Costa Cruises offers a broad range of shoreside pursuits catering to a variety of interests. Excursions vary by itinerary and include everything from zip-lining through the trees in Antigua to climbing Dubai's sand dunes in 4x4 vehicles. You can find adventures that match your personal preferences by using Costa's online excursion search tool, which lists excursions by activity type and level (ranging from relaxing to challenging).

Costa also offers a selection of environmentally friendly eco-excursions, including bike trips, nature walks and cultural immersion programs. Excursions are available for purchase online up to three days prior to sailing, or they can be booked on the ship. You can cancel your excursion reservation up to three days before the cruise's departure date without an additional fee. After that, you will not be refunded the price of the excursion. You can also choose to explore each port on your own – just be sure to make it back to the ship on time. Suggested return times vary by port of call.
