GO ON A CRUISE WITH COSTA AND EXPERIENCE THE EXCITEMENT OF THE RYDER CUP 2023
The Italian company, as the official cruise line of the Ryder Cup 2023, is offering a unique opportunity to watch the most important team tournament in world golf, which will be held in Italy for the first time, by booking a cruise onboard the Costa Smeralda or the Costa Toscana, the most innovative ships in the fleet.
Genoa, 8 June 2023 - Costa Cruises, an Italian company and Official Cruise Line of the 2023 Ryder Cup, presents a truly unique opportunity for all golf enthusiasts.
The Ryder Cup, the most important international team competition in world golf, is set to take place in Italy for the first time in its history. From September 25 to October 1, 2023, a selection of the best U.S. players and a selection of the best European players will compete on the course of the Marco Simone Golf & Country Club in Rome. The anticipation for this sport event, among the most watched in the world, is sky-high: tickets for the closing days of the tournament, from Friday September 29 to Sunday October 1, are now sold out.
Except for Costa Cruises guests. In fact, by booking a cruise on the Costa Smeralda or Costa Toscana, the most innovative ships in the Costa fleet, guests will also have the possibility to attend the closing rounds of the Ryder Cup 2023.
The offer includes several options for maximum flexibility. The first applies to the two Costa Toscana (Sept. 21 to 28) and Costa Smeralda (Sept. 22 to 29) cruises preceding the Ryder Cup weekend. At the end of the cruise, in the port of Civitavecchia, guests will be able to travel independently to the Marco Simone Golf Club to enjoy the matches scheduled for the final days, the most exciting time in the tournament. This first option allows guests to enjoy unforgettable experiences on board the two ships - such as the Archipelago Restaurant with menus by great chefs Bruno Barbieri, Hélène Darroze and Ángel León, or the Solemio spa overlooking the sea -, visit magnificent destinations in the Mediterranean (Civitavecchia/Rome, Genoa, Marseille, Barcelona, Cagliari and Naples for Costa Toscana; Civitavecchia/Rome, Savona, Marseille, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, and Palermo for Costa Smeralda) and then end the vacation on a high note by attending the Ryder Cup.
Another option to enjoy the Ryder Cup, however, is to purchase any cruise departing aboard Costa Smeralda until 30 November 2023, including the "Cruise & Golf" package, regardless of the date of the cruise. This option is particularly suitable for golf enthusiasts who like to test themselves on the green. Indeed, the "Cruise & golf" package allows guests to play at some of the most prestigious golf clubs in the Mediterranean during the port calls included in the Costa Smeralda itinerary, choosing up to 4 of the 24 best courses in Italy, France and Spain; while at the same time enjoying a Costa vacation to the fullest.
Costa Cruises' "Cruise & Golf" formula is a true "easy golf" experience, free of worries. In addition to Green Fees, the formula includes a number of special services for maximum comfort. Among these, dedicated transfers from the ship to the golf club and back, priority embarkation and disembarkation at the beginning and end of the cruise, insurance and onboard storage of golf equipment, and a welcome kit in the cabin. In addition, this option includes a special offer dedicated to golfers and their families to enjoy the exceptional variety of restaurants available on Costa Smeralda and to try a range of selected treatments and services in the "Solemio" spa and beauty salon on board.
Those interested in the offer can refer to a travel agency partner of Costa Cruises or contact the Costa Cruises Customer Centers.
