Costa Pacifica Cruise Ship - Dining and Cuisine

The Costa Pacifica is an Italian ship of Costa Cruises with musically-themed rooms, and the cuisine is varied and international.

The ship has two main dining rooms on decks 3 and 4—New York, New York and My Way. The food is nicely presented, with appropriate portions. Guests are assigned to one of these two restaurants based on cabin location and accommodation grade.

La Paloma Buffet is the casual buffet dining area aft on deck 9. It features various stations with international cuisine, including Italian, French, Spanish, Brazilian, Mexican, and Asian. Hot dogs, pizza, hamburgers, and grilled sandwiches are available nearby.

Passengers staying in the dedicated Samsara cabins on the Costa Pacific cruise ship can choose to dine in the Samsara Restaurant next to My Way. Other guests can dine in the Samsara Restaurant but will have to pay an extra surcharge.

Suite guests and those with high levels in the CostaClub will appreciate the Blue Moon Club, which is an alternative restaurant aft on deck 11. The place settings and restaurant decor are elegant and the food is excellent.
