The Spa and Gym facilities on the Costa Mediterranea span two decks. Every passenger should take advantage of at least one spa treatment in the Ischia Spa, even if it does come at an extra cost. The healing hands of the skilled technicians will rejuvenate your body and soul. The area is arranged in tiers so that you always have a view of the ocean as you sail along and this enhances the relaxing mood of the spa. In the whirlpool, for example, you have a view from the front of the ship. This venue also boasts separate steam rooms for men and women, saunas and multiple head showers.

The Olympian Gym, which is on a different deck from the spa, contains the latest in fitness equipment for your work out needs. One of the unique features of the equipment is that you have two settings to choose from – manual and automatic. In the automatic setting, the computer sets the workout program according to the level you choose for you and takes you through a thorough workout. You do have to purchase a pass key for this experience.

There are also fitness classes taught in the gym by qualified instructors. There is a fee associated with some of these classes, such as Pilates and Yoga. The Costa Mediterranea is unique in that it also offers classes in kickboxing.

Deck 9 is the location of three separate pools. Here you can have a morning workout that will start your day off before you have breakfast. One of these pools has a retractable roof so that weather won’t hamper your morning swim. There is also a smaller pool in the aft section of the ship that is rarely crowded, but it is in the open air, which means that you won’t be able to use it in times of inclement weather.

Take a walk or a jog along the track on the top deck above the gym. From this vantage point you have an exceptional view of the ocean and the sights. This deck also contains an enclosed court where you can play basketball or volleyball.
