Costa Crociere announces a collaboration with the fleet for the next seasons Carnival Cruise Line. This is to create a new concept of “Costa by Carnival“. The new program will be dedicated to North American guests and will start in the spring of 2023 when the Costa Venezia joins the Carnival fleet. It will then be the turn of Costa Firenze a year later and therefore from spring 2024. Meanwhile, Costa Cruises has also signed an agreement with FVG (Friuli Venezia Giulia) to articulate a tourist offer that involves the whole region and not just Trieste.
The union with the Carnival fleet
They will cooperate with the Carnival fleet Coast Venice And Florence to offer guests excellent service, food and entertainment that are a prerogative of the Italian style. In any case, the indicated Costa Cruises ships will continue to follow the planned itineraries until they are delivered to Carnival. Mario Zanetti, general manager of Costa Cruises, is enthusiastic about the debut of these ships in the United States as many North American guests will be able to appreciate the characteristics of the Italian ships. And so an important synergy will be created within this really important market.
Friuli Venezia Giulia and Costa Cruises: here is the agreement
Thanks to the collaboration between Costa Cruises and FVG, more than 30 large ships reached Trieste in 2022. The goal now is to articulate an offer that involves the whole region. From the first week of July, in the meantime, Costa Cruises will offer its customers who will arrive in Trieste three cruise routes. Exactly for the areas of Collio, Aquileia and the Carso.
To make the offer even better, specific shows, dinners with typical products of the region and a Fvg card are being studied.
Roberto Dipiazza who is the mayor of Trieste explained that an excellent relationship has been created with Costa Cruises and stressed that around 750,000 tourists arrive in Trieste every year. The Regional Tourism Councilor then adds that in the surveys Friuli appears to be one of the most sought-after regions in Italy. This is why the partnership with Costa Cruises is important, in fact the growth potential is still very high.
