Genoa, 11 February 2016 – Costa Cruises is getting ready to welcome and amaze all lovers cruising on its ships, with lots of surprises and sweet initiatives to share with one’s better half on St. Valentine’s Day: activities dedicated to couples, shopping, relaxing massages and dinners with soft lighting will make the voyage even more unforgettable for all couples in love, with everything permeated by the romantic atmosphere of Costa ships.

So that February 14th starts out on the right note, Costa has really thought of everything: the ship spa will offer massages for couples, thanks to a special St. Valentine’s package that includes 50 minutes of total relaxation that becomes even more perfect with a glass of Prosecco and a bowl of delectable strawberries.

St. Valentine’s Day will also be celebrated in onboard shops where partners can surprise each other with a wide assortment of gifts. Even sweeter surprises are available in the bars on the Costa Diadema, the Costa Mediterranea and the Costa neoClassica, like a delicious package of chocolate hearts by the Italian chocolate maître Guido Gobino and the “Cake for lovers”, created by the famous pastry maker Luigi Biasetto, the perfect way to match dedications and promises of love.

Even onboard entertainment will put the spotlight on romance: during the day, lovers can dedicate love songs to each other at the poolside, while more enterprising couples can participate in the “Couple Games” in the ship theatre, or take part in an exciting video-quiz, trying to guess the most famous couples of lovers. On this special day dedicated to love, even kids can take part in the festivities, making small notes in the form of red roses and hearts to dedicate to their parents.

And one of the most enchanting moments will be the dinner: a beautiful white and red cake in the shape of a heart will be waiting for couples as they enter the ship's main restaurants and the ladies will be given a red rose. And nothing to worry about for those travelling with the entire family: a special dinner will be organised in the self-service restaurant for kids, giving mom and dad a sweet moment of intimacy. At the end of the dinner all guests will receive a sweet surprise, when they are served the special Love Dessert: a sweet made with buckwheat and blueberry jam that's the perfect way to end an unforgettable evening.

The atmosphere will be even more romantic at the Restaurant Club, where dim lighting and decorations of blue and white roses will help create a truly special evening. Guests will be greeted with a welcome aperitif with Ferrari spumante and they can savour a special menu dedicated especially to them, while serenaded by romantic live music.

In the evening, onboard musicians will play songs to dance “cheek to cheek”: the best dancing partners may be voted the best “St. Valentine's couple” and toast to their loved ones in bars with a special “Together Forever” cocktail.

Finally, to celebrate their love, guests can take home their portrait and 3 videos of their cruise as a romantic souvenir of their special experience.
