Costa Joins Other Travel Suppliers in Celebrating Royal Wedding

Costa Cruises is joining other travel suppliers such as Virgin Atlantic and Cunard Line in celebrating the upcoming nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton. On Friday, April 29, the cruise line will broadcast live television coverage of the royal wedding onboard all 14 of its ships.
The Italian cruise line secured broadcast rights from BBC World News and will provide full coverage of the highly anticipated global media event, combined with a day of festivities and other surprise events. Extensive, live coverage of the ceremony from Westminster Abbey will be broadcast on the in-cabin entertainment system in every stateroom, as well as on large screens in the theaters and on the Lido Decks of Costa’s fleet, which has 13 ships in the Mediterranean and one in Asia. Guests who are British subjects will have reserved seating for the broadcast in public areas.

At 10 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time, the chimes of Big Ben will announce the start of the celebrations for all guests onboard all 14 Costa ships. Planned activities include a royal wedding trivia quiz, Royal Bingo, live music, a Royal Street Party on the outside decks, a “food corner” with classic offerings like fish and chips and a special Royal cocktail, as well as a themed wedding cake in honor of the bride and groom.
