Costa Cruises has announced that starting in 2016, it will be introducing a series of exclusive and unique experiences that can be enjoyed only on its ships. “When persons vacationing with us are happy, our happiness increases exponentially,” commented Neil Palomba, president of Costa.

To make it guests happy, Cosa said it will introduce a gala menu created by Michelin-starred chef Bruno Barbieri; must-do shore excursions suggested by the co-presenter of a popular Italian TV travel show, Syusy Blady and Patrizio Roversi; and The Voice of the Sea, Costa’s version of the singing contest. In addition, younger passengers will have an opportunity to meet Peppa Pig, from the animated TV series.
