COSTA SMERALDA is due in 2019 and is a 183,900 gross tonnage ship.

Costa Smeralda will be large, holding 6,500 guests. The new Helios-class vessels will be beautiful, stylish and full of Italian hospitality. Its spaces take the name of and inspiration from the squares of the “Bel Paese” of Italy: as you walk down the wide stair case of the stern, it will feel like you are strolling through Piazza di Spagna, and browsing through shops, bars and restaurants to glimpse the liveliness of magical places like those of Trastevere, with the privilege of a unique perspective, that of the sea. An unforgettable experience to share with the people you love.  Smeralda page in English
