Costa Cruises celebrated its 70th anniversary in the company of its guests, on a special cruise dedicated to the members of CostaClub, the Club for people who always choose a Costa cruise as their favourite holiday.

 

On a 12-day trip aboard the Costa Pacifica, with a new itinerary that visited some of the most beautiful places in the Mediterranean, a programme of events full of surprises and exceptional guests brought together around 3000 CostaClub members from 18 different countries.

 

French Pastry Chef Christophe Adam created a 3-metre high pyramid of his famous and colourful “Éclair de Génie” (pastry cakes), which was the main attraction of a magnificent party. Chef Bruno Barbieri, winner of 7 Michelin stars in his career, a partner of Costa Cruises for many years, directed an exceptional show-cooking event involving a number of CostaClub members in preparing dishes, and presented his new menu created exclusively for Costa ships.

 

The real star of the cruise was Gloria Gaynor, who performed in concert in the ship’s theatre, performing all her most successful hits, including “I Will Survive” and “Never Can Say Goodbye”.

 

Costa’s 70th birthday was celebrated in style with a big party also attended by Neil Palomba, President of Costa Cruises, which culminated with the cutting of a large celebratory cake.

 

The next CostaClub cruise will depart on 20 April 2019, aboard the Costa Mediterranea, sailing from Amsterdam (Netherlands) on a 16-day itinerary dedicated to Great Britain and Ireland, which will allow guests to visit places such as London, Dublin, Belfast, Liverpool, Edinburgh and Newcastle.
