As the winter season begins to subside, many families are beginning to plan their next travel adventure. With spring nearing, the largest Italian travel company and Europe’s favorite cruise line, Costa Cruises, is making it easier for families to book and save on one of the line’s award-winning Mediterranean itineraries with “Kids Sail Free” and “Senior Fare” specials.
Whether cruisers decide to embark on an exotic 11-night sailing on Costa Pacifica or a classic seven-night cruise on Costa Diademafor their spring break, guests will be treated to Costa’s famous culinary creations, sommelier-selected wines, luxurious spa treatments, exciting onboard programming and fantastic activities for kids and teens that have become synonymous with cruising in Italian style.
“With our Squok Club programming, Samsara Spa and incredible dining options, a Costa cruise is one of the best ways for a multigenerational family to expand their travel horizons,” said Scott Knutson, vice president of sales and marketing for Costa Cruises North America. “Costa Cruises has been a family favorite for over 70 years and families can now save as they make lasting memories together with our Kids Sail Free and Senior Fare specials on a once-in-a-lifetime Mediterranean cruise.”
Parents looking to experience the magic of the Mediterranean can save on their spring break plans by using the Kids Sail Free promotion available for select departures on Costa Diadema, Costa Fascinosa, and Costa neoRomantica on a Comfort Classic, Comfort Premium or Deluxe fare. For example, a family of four could embark on the April 23 seven-night Costa Diadema cruise from Barcelona, Spain, for just $1,798 on a Comfort Classic fare, plus port charges and gratuities.
Costa’s younger guests can enjoy unique programming at either the Squok Club, Mini and Maxi Club, or the Teen Club. From Costa’s exclusive partnership with the popular animated character Peppa Pig to the “Captain for a Day” or “Princess for a Day” programs, the cruise line’s youngest guests will surely be entertained. In addition, teens and tweens will also enjoy age-specific fun including sports tournaments, dance and karaoke competitions, and themed parties throughout the sailing.
Along with the onboard fun, the savings also extend to the older generation with Costa’s Special Senior Fares with $100 deducted from a Comfort Classic, Comfort Premium or Deluxe fare. For example, for Costa Victoria’s April 29 seven-night sailing from Savona, Italy, rates start as a low as $659 per person with the special Senior Fare. The fares are based on double occupancy and are available on Costa Pacifica, Costa neoRomantica, Costa neoRiviera and Costa Victoria. Government taxes and fees are additional, per person, and will be quoted at time of booking. The special rate can be added by calling 800-GO-COSTA.
Parents and grandparents can find plenty to do onboard. From pampering treatments at the Samsara Spa and intriguing CostaTours! to exciting evening disco parties and even a round of seaside golf, the fun never stops on a Costa cruise.
