Costa Cruises will celebrate Italian Republic Day June 2 onboard its Italian-flagged ships with celebratory events organized by Italian embassies and consulates in four Nordic destinations.
The first event will be held May 30 in Copenhagen, Sweden, on Costa Favolosa, followed by May 31 in Kiel, Germany, on Costa Pacifica. An event will be held June 9 on Costa Fortuna in Stavanger, Norway, and June 11 in Oslo, Norway, on Costa Favolosa.
Italian gastronomic culture will be spotlighted during the events, with luncheons featuring tastes of the Italian culinary tradition and "made in Italy" brands, such as Caffè Illy, spumante Ferrari, and the Maitre Chocolatier Guido Gobino. In Oslo the company will offer a typical Italian breakfast with the best traditional Italian pastries.
In addition to the events to be held in northern European countries, Costa Cruises will celebrate June 2 with all guests on its ships. The Italian Republic Day program includes special menus and cocktails inspired by the Italian flag, and the playing of the national anthem.
Costa Cruises also will provide support to the general consulate of Dubai for organizing the festivities celebrating the birth of the Italian Republic to promote the excellences of Italy with local communities.
