Cruise ship set to be named in Dubai

Article content

11 January 2010

A new cruise ship from Costa Cruises is scheduled to be named in Dubai next month.

The Costa Deliziosa will be given a title on 23 February and is to be the first cruise liner to undergo such a ceremony in an Arabian city.

Organised by the Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing in conjunction with Costa Cruises, the event is to take place during the vessel's inaugural trip, which will depart from Italy on 5 February.

Fabrizia Greppi, Costa Cruises vice-president for corporate marketing and communications, said that the occasion will be "unforgettable".

He remarked: "The naming ceremony of our 15th ship, Costa Deliziosa, in Dubai confirms again our pioneering spirit in setting 'new [records]'."

Last month, Costa Cruises announced that the Costa Deliziosa is to have a number of impressive features, including a 4D cinema, a Grand Prix driving simulator, a roller-skating track and a three-storey theatre.
