Atmosphere on board of AIDAcosma
According to the various facilities guests of all ages enjoy the holiday. They appreciate the relaxed, informal atmosphere and the great service of the friendly and helpful crew members. Sports and entertainment are offered in the daily program but there are also calm places on the ship to relax and enjoy the sea view.
In total there are 17 restaurants and two of them have never existed before aboard any AIDA ship. The Italian specialty restaurant Mamma Mia is going to replace the popular Casa Nova restaurant. The second new restaurant is the Beach House with light dishes at the buffet. As usual the meals in the buffet and specialty restaurants are included in the cruise price. The drinks in the specialty restaurants are charged like at the bars. To visit the numerous restaurants takes a lot of time. There are international dishes like sushi, South American beef, French fish soup and many more. We recommend to visit one of the à-la-carte restaurants if you like to celebrate a special occasion and to make a reservation in advance because these restaurants are very popular.
Entertainment, sports & relaxation
Like on the other ships of the fleet there are many entertainment, fitness and relaxation facilities. In the evening fascinating shows take place in the Theatrium and on the 360 degree-stage. In the Beach Club with constantly 25 degrees amazing parties take place. Rock fans will be satisfied by the live music in the Rock Box Bar. In the large fitness area Body & Soul Sport there are modern sports equipment, class rooms and Power Plates. The fitness area is opened all day long. Most of the sports classes are free of cost. For good relaxation you should not miss to visit the Body & Soul Organic Spa. There are five saunas, a tepidarium, a fireplace lounge and an outside area with further jacuzzis. Special wellness treatments as well as appointments at the hairdresser or make-up artist can be booked for a surcharge. Active guests can try to climb at the new boulder wall or use the water slides. Instead of the Four Elements which is known well from AIDAnova there will be an open pool deck with an infinity pool, a pool bar and a stage.
Travel with children on board of AIDAcosma
The offer for families is gigantic and starts already with the selection of the stateroom before your holiday aboard. There are a lot of staterooms which can host four of five travellers. Some have a connecting door as well. On the ship there is a child care program for children and teenagers between 3 and 17 years. For the youngest guests between six and 36 months a baby sitting service is offered for a surcharge. The best restaurant for families is the Fuego Restaurant. The lowered buffet, favourite dishes like noodles and the soft ice machine make the children's heart flutter. Besides that there is the very practical Baby Bistro with baby food jars, ready-to-eat meals, a microwave and much more. For playing time there are an indoor playground, water slides, swimming pools with life jackets and a lot of games.
AIDAcosma is highly recommended for a fantastic holiday with the family. Solo travellers will like this ship as well and get in touch with other passengers quickly. The various onboard facilities guarantee a lot of fun during a day at sea. Our favourite place to watch the sailaway is the area around the Pool Bar on deck 18 with some nice and calm lounge music played by the DJ.
