We are looking forward to our first Costa cruise departing Marseille on May 15. Just wondering if others who have cruised on Costa before remember seeing Franciacorta on any of the wine lists either for purchase by the glass or by the bottle. Franciacorta is good quality Italian sparkling wine produced in the Champagne method that comes from, you guessed it, the Franciacorta region of Italy 🙂   Thanks in advance for any information!

Our most recent Costa cruise was on Smeralda in Dec '22. Standard fizz at the regular bars was Sant'Orsola, didn't look at any for fee bottles. 

Smeralda did have  Campari & Ferrari bars in  which you get their, I would say, better class of sparkling. 

At the Ferrari bar only, you could get their prosecco brand Bisol 1542, there were Ferrari (traditional method) cocktails included but, for some odd reason,  not the straight fizz.

Thanks so much! Hoping someone will have a more recent experience and can give us info on the availability of Franciacorta. Once again, thank you for your comments.
