Happiness Squared
Costa wants make your 2016 vacations on boards happy and unforgettable like never before. That’s why Costa proposes a wide variety of new ideas and outstanding testimonials: a new gala menu created by Michelin-starred chef Bruno Barbieri; famous television talent shows, like The Voice of the Sea, replicated on board fleet ships; and, for kids, all the fun of Peppa Pig world.

Starting in January 2016, guests cruising on Costa ships will be able to savour, during the gala dinner, a signature menu created by Bruno Barbieri, the Italian chef who has garnered the highest number of Michelin stars, a total of seven. The menu will be an authentic voyage of traditional Italian tastes and flavours, from North to South.

You will become the real stars of all onboard fun activities. Starting in April 2016, Costa cruisers with a special singing talent can’t miss the chance to take part in the wildly popular talent show The Voice, broadcasted in over 180 countries around the world and that will come on board Costa ships under the name of “The Voice of the Sea”. Participants will be chosen during onboard karaoke sessions, and you will have the opportunity to perfect their singing skills by rehearsing with onboard musicians and voice coaches. Like in the television , on the evening of the show a trio of Coaches will select the singers, without seeing their performances but only listening to them, who will become part of their team. The public will vote to choose the final winner.

Onboard fun will be guaranteed also for the little cruisers, who will enjoy a truly exciting experience in the company of their favourite cartoon character: Peppa Pig. Loved by children from more than 180 countries around the world, in April 2016 she’ll come on board Costa ships for exciting and fun adventures. Kids will be able to meet and play with her in the areas of the Squok Club, in a space that recreates the cartoon locations, with sets that change from ship to ship. Numerous creative games and educational activities will be proposed around the colourful world of Peppa Pig for all children, under the constant and skilful direction of the Squok Club entertainers.
