“Costa is looking forward to another outstanding cruising season this fall, and what better way to celebrate the start of summer than with a special promotion on our most popular cruises throughout the Mediterranean,” said Scott Knutson, vice president of sales and trade marketing for Costa Cruises North America. “Costa’s Mediterranean cruises continue to attract travelers looking for memorable experiences while Cruising Italian Style, something we’ve been treating our guests to for 75 years.”


The best way to experience the Mediterranean is on a cruise line that was founded in Italy. Costa Cruises serves authentic Italian food the way real Italians like it — signature recipes from each region in the country, later dining times, ship-made mozzarella cheese and gelato, and venues that reflect the country. Guests can indulge in Italy’s most popular food and beverage brands, such as Aperol, Campari, Ferrari Trento, Frescobaldi wine and Caffé Vergnano coffee. North American guests can expect a truly international vacation experience from the only Italian-flagged cruise line, no matter where in the world they are sailing.
