Costa Cruise, the Italian unit in Carnival Corporation & plc group, has announced major improvements on board its ships Costa Magica and Costa Pacifica, in order to further enhance the cruise experience offered to its guests.
During the dry docking at Forme 10 dock of Chantier Naval de Marseille in the port of Marseille Fos, in addition to regular maintenance works, both ships will benefit from important upgrades in the public areas and from the addition of new features, with the aim to ensure an even more thrilling experience for guests, reflecting Costa positioning.
Costa Magica, that already left Marseille dry dock on November 25, was subjected to a major refurbishment of the restaurants and wellness areas:
Vicenza Club Restaurants and Bellagio Buffet Restaurant – changes to the layout and upgrades in the galleys will allow guests accommodated in the suites cabins and Costa Club Diamond Pearl members to fully enjoy the Club Restaurant, while Buffet Bellagio Restaurant has been improved with a more efficient space allocation.
Spa – renovation of wellness and gym spaces and introduction of a new sauna, thalassotherapy and relax area.
On board of Costa Pacifica, dry docked from November 26 to December 7, a new digital signage will debut: new high-resolution monitors and interactive screens featuring different functions will help guests’ orientation on the ship, inform them about the different events and activities planned on board, advertise promotions on products and services available and also promote educational initiatives and campaign.
Last but not least, renovation works include the addition of two of the most appreciated Costa latest features: Pizzeria Pummid’Oro on Costa Pacifica and Gelateria Amarillo on both ships. Guest will be able enjoy the original Italian pizza, with dough made from 100% natural yeast, real mozzarella produced on board, San Marzano DOP tomatoes, selected flours, and Italian gelato made with Agrimontana flavourings for delicious, tasty ice creams.
Once the upgrades have been completed Costa Magica and Costa Pacifica will head off to the Caribbean for their scheduled winter cruises.
