Costa Cruises is offering guests a unique opportunity to watch the Ryder Cup 2023, the most important team tournament in world golf.
Costa Cruises, the Official Cruise Line of the 2023 Ryder Cup, is offering golf enthousiasts a truly unique opportunity.
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 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.
During these voyages guests will visit some of the most exciting 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). While on board they can enjoy unforgettable experiences such as the Archipelago Restaurant with menus by great chefs Bruno Barbieri, Hélène Darroze and Ángel León, or the Solemio spa overlooking the sea.
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.
Another option to enjoy the Ryder Cup, 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. 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.
