The trips close Marseille, Barcelona, Cagliari, Palermo and Civitavecchia/Rome. Next to the Costa Firenze Costa Luminosa will also be in Genoa every Sunday from November 13th until the end of the year, also for week-long cruises in the western Mediterranean. In 2022, Costa will make a total of 45 calls in Genoa after few calls in 2021 and 2020 due to the Covid emergency. In 2023, Costa expects a further increase in presence in Genoa.

From today there is another important innovation to announce on board the Costa Firenze. The ship's guests can visit Genoa "freely" as part of organized excursions or on their own. The "bubble" that protected passengers from contact with the outside world is a thing of the past. These new regulations, which came into force on April 1st, apply to all destinations, subject to compliance with the requirements imposed by local authorities.

That says Mario Zanetti, President of Costa Cruises
"After a two-year hiatus, we're finally returning to Genoa regularly with our cruises. We're doing it with a new-generation ship and an even richer product that allows us to explore our destinations in the best possible way," says Mario Zanetti , President of Costa Cruises. "Costa Firenze and the other ships in the fleet offer the opportunity to create a common value in the territories, helping to create models for future development that are sustainable and capable of multiplying the growth opportunities for the territory. I think of this as an example to projects such as cold ironing, ie the use of shore power for ships calling at ports.
