Costa Cruises Hosts Three West Coast Travel Agent Events in Feb.

In early February, travel agents based on the West Coast will have an opportunity to tour a Costa Cruises ship, experience the line's Italian hospitality and catch up on company developments. The 92,700-ton, 2,260-passenger Costa Deliziosa will call at San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco, Calif., on its 101-day world cruise.

In each port Costa Cruises North America will stage a luncheon and ship tour for travel agents. Scott Knutson, VP of sales and marketing for Costs Cruises North America, will provide agents an overview of travel trade news and developments at the Italian line, including the line's soon-to-launch neoCollections and the newbuild due in October. 

Introduced in 2010, Costa Deliziosa is one of the newer ships in the 14-vessel fleet and is the only Costa ship to call on the U.S. West Coast in recent years. Highlights onboard are the 37,674-square-foot Samsara Spa, 4-D Cinema, Grand Prix and golf simulators, 11 bars and lounges and four restaurants.

Earlier this month, Costa Deliziosa rescued six sailors from a sinking yacht. At the time, Costa Deliziosa was crossing the Atlantic en route to Antigua in the Caribbean, with arrival scheduled the morning of Jan. 17. The ship left the planned course and sailed approximately 170 miles southeast to reach the stricken sailboat.
