Deliziosa named runner-up in ‘Best Cruise Ship for Entertainment’ category
January 2016 - Costa Cruises placed in the top
five of two USA Today 10Best Readers’
Choice Awards, including a runner-up nod for Costa Deliziosa, currently
sailing Caribbean cruises from Port Everglades, Florida, in “Best Cruise Ship for Entertainment.”
The Italian-flagged cruise line also placed fourth out of 10 in the overall “Best
Ocean Cruise Line” category.
“Our ships offer Italy’s
finest in terms of quality, passion and hospitality. We are proud that our
holidays with a unique and real Italian touch are very much appreciated also in
the USA. Starting in 2016 we will propose a series of new exclusive and unique
experiences to make all our guests happy: with Costa, your happiness is
multiplied, because you can also see it in the eyes of your travel companions -”
said Neil Palomba, President of Costa
With Costa’s new “Italy’s Finest” and the latest “Happiness Squared” initiatives, the cruise
line has revamped its culinary and entertainment offerings by bringing the best
Italian brands and traditions to sea. This includes new regional and gala night
menus by Michelin-star Chefs Fabio
Cucchelli and Bruno Barbieri, respectively, and partnerships with leading
Italian brands like Barilla, for perfect pasta at lunch and dinner; Illy Caffé,
for an Italian-style coffee break at anytime; and Ferrari, bringing the popular
wines from northern Italy’s Trentino region to bars across the fleet. The new Pummid’Oro pizzerias serve real pizzas
with dough made from 100% natural yeast thanks to special collaboration between
the Italian company and the University of Gastronomic Science in Pollenzo. Guests
can also taste the real Italian ice-creams of Agrimontana at the Gelateria Amarillo and gourmet burgers
with very high quality 100% Italian Fassona beef. In bars, guests can enjoy Italian aperitivo,
with various cocktails like the spritz, made with Italian brand Aperol.
In entertainment, themed parties such as La Notte in Maschera and La
Notte Bianca celebrate two famous Italian customs: the masked Venetian
carnival and a white night festival. Furthermore starting in 2016 guests will
be able to take part to famous television talent shows, like The Voice of the Sea, replicated on
board fleet ships. Onboard fun will be guaranteed also for young cruisers, who
will enjoy a truly exciting experience in the company of their favorite cartoon
character: Peppa Pig.
All of these exciting offerings and more are featured on the
92,600-ton, 2,260-passenger Costa Deliziosa, which placed second in the “Best
Cruise Ship for Entertainment” category. The ship brings all the “Italy’s Finest”
excitement to south Florida and the Caribbean with its four restaurants and 11
bars to its three pools, split-level theater, dance club and casino.
For kids, Costa Deliziosa’s Squok Club offers plenty of fun
activities from treasure hunts to ice cream parties. The ship also features
Grand Prix simulator.
Costa Deliziosa is currently sailing a series of 10-night
itineraries from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Guests can enjoy
Costa’s unique Italian ambience while seeing more of the Caribbean than
typically offered on a traditional Caribbean cruise with calls at Nassau or Freeport, Bahamas; Amber Cove, Dominican
Republic; Ocho Rios, Jamaica; Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands; Roatan; and Cozumel
or Costa Maya, Mexico.
