Costa ships plan festivities for Italian Republic Day

Italy's national anthem will be played on board the ships June 2
Costa Crociere is preparing to celebrate Italian Republic Day on June 2 aboard its 14 Italian-flagged ships. Passengers will be invited to toast the playing of the national anthem.

Costa also will support celebrations to promote Italian excellence organized by Italian embassies and consulates at Washington, DC; Abu Dhabi, Ankara and Istanbul. During a scheduled call at Copenhagen on May 31, Costa Luminosa will host a reception organized by the Italian embassy there.

For more than 66 years Costa ships have showcased Italian-made excellence with their service, entertainment, food and wine, and art collections.
