From the Mediterranean to beyond North Cape, this summer will be a world event on board Costa Cruises ships!

Thanks to its partnership with Sky Italia, Costa Cruises, the largest Italian tourism group and Europe’s n.1 cruise company, will give its Guests the chance to share in the adventure of their favourite national football team on board 12 of the fleet’s ships: 8 matches broadcast live surrounded by the wonders of the Mediterranean and 4 in the magical scenic landscapes of North Europe.

During the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2010 championship, to be held in South Africa from 11 June to 11 July, cruise Guests on one of the more than 20 itineraries proposed by Costa Cruises in Mare Nostrum or toward north European destinations will be able to cheer for our team and enjoy all the thrills and excitement of a live match during this extraordinary tournament…and even while sailing!

These eagerly awaited matches will be shown in the most beautiful and striking areas of our ships, surrounded by the sea in all its cerulean glory or by truly breathtaking panoramas including the Norwegian fjords, the major Baltic cities or the most beautiful Mediterranean locales.

Costa Cruises is always attentive to the needs of its Guests: in fact, even in the past, it has always presented top sports events, like the Fifa World Cup 2006.
