The Costa Romantica shines when it comes to the facilities it offers for families with children. The Costa company has a Squok program on the ship that is divided into different age groups. Activities are all age appropriate so that children have plenty to keep them occupied and happy as their parents indulge in other types of entertainment on a cruise. The counsellors are well-trained in dealing with children and take them on many different kinds of adventures, sometimes using the public rooms for their escapades.

There are also two different groups for teenagers, so that the younger ones don’t interact with the older ones. Socials and contests are scheduled for each group allowing them to interact with those of the same age. They can hang out around the pool or have fun in the video arcade.

There is a shopping area on the ship, which includes a photography shop. Here you can download digital photos, purchase supplies or even have your photo taken as a souvenir of your cruise. There are duty-free shops for alcoholic beverages, jewelry, cigarettes and cigars. Shop for upscale clothing from brand name designers or pick up personal items you forgot to bring or have run out of.

There is a chapel on the ship where Roman Catholic services are held. Passengers who enjoy playing cards can use the card room where there are plenty of tables and chairs. The large selection of board games lets you set up a game of your choice and gives you a chance to get to meet some of your fellow passengers who share your passion for games.

If reading is the way you love passing time on the deck or in your cabin, there is a fine selection of books from all genres on the Costa Romantica. They are also available in different languages so there is something for everyone. The library, with its comfy chairs, is a great place to watch the world go by or just catch a short nap during the day. It is also the setting for the computer stations where you can check your email to keep in touch with the offices or the family back home.
