Costa Cruises returned to Broward County's Port Everglades today with a first call by the 2,260-passenger Costa Deliziosa.

Costa Cruises has sailed from Port Everglades since the 1960s and is returning for the winter season following a four-year hiatus, said the port in a statement.

"Costa Deliziosa is a good fit for Port Everglades because it gives our cruise guests the option to cruise aboard a vessel that has a distinct Italian style," said Port Everglades Chief Executive and Port Director Steven Cernak. "Costa Cruises has a long tradition in South Florida, and we are delighted to have Costa Deliziosa join our fleet this season."
