Ibero Cruises (Spanish: Ibero Cruceros) was a British-American and Spanish owned cruise line based in Madrid, Spain. The cruise line was aimed at the Spanish and Portuguese speaking market. Iberocruceros operates voyages in Europe, the Mediterranean, and in South America.
The company was founded in 2003 as Viajes Iberojet and renamed in 2007 and became a joint subsidiary of Carnival Corporation & plc and Orizonia Corporation, under the executive control of Costa Cruises Group, Carnival Corporation's European division. Ibero Cruises started with three ships; Grand Mistral, Grand Latino, and Grand Voyager which were provided by Orizonia. In 2008, the Grand Celebration, provided by Carnival Cruises was transferred to the fleet of Ibero. An additional ship, the Grand Holiday, was transferred into the fleet in 2009 from Carnival.
It was announced in November 2014, that Costa Cruises would absorb Ibero Cruises in its entirety by the end of the year. The Grand Celebration would be transferred to the main fleet of Costa Crociere as the Costa Celebration. Also the Grand Holiday would be transferred to The British Cruise & Maritime Voyages as the Magellan.
