Сarnival’s Venezia ship has undergone a refit after moving over from the Costa brand.

A new dining room, the Marco Polo Restaurant, will serve Italian dishes in an interior that’s peppered with Italian flair. Elsewhere onboard, expect experiences across the decks inspired by Costa’s Italian heritage. The new additions needn’t put off Carnival fans. Firm favourites return throughout the ship - with tried and tested dining venues, activities and experiences making Carnival Venezia feel familiar, fun and fresh, all at once.
