During this year’s FIFA World Cup, which will take place in Brazil from 12 June to 13 July, Costa Cruises will give all its guests the chance to watch the scheduled football matches live on board its 14 ships. In addition, Costa Cruises has planned a variety of activities for all on board guests, and football fans in particular, to celebrate the tournament.
The World Cup always captures the attention of football lovers. Regardless of which national team they support, everyone becomes passionate about the beautiful game, whether it’s suffering a missed penalty, or cheerfully celebrating a goal scored at the very last second.
Depending on the timing of the event and the nations involved, the matches will be broadcast in different venues on board. These include the big screen in the macrodome pool deck venue and in the main theatre, in order to allow all guests to watch the matches and cheer for their team.
What’s more, for the whole duration of the World Cup, Costa Cruises has planned a wide range of themed activities that will engage not only football fans, but all other guests who simply want to support their team with both old and new acquaintances from all over the world.
Costa Cruises has designed the rich entertainment programme to animate the footballing festivities of summer 2014. During the day, the most creative guests can customise T-shirts or create banners with the colours of their favourite team. Football and tennis tournaments will also be available for sports enthusiasts, along with a game or two of freestyle dribbling.
Those who prefer to stay on the side-lines can take Brazilian samba lessons to celebrate their team’s goals in style. For those who want to comfortably cheer sitting by the pool, there is a series of fun quizzes based on the World Cup with exclusive prizes to be won.
Costa Cruises’ entertainment programme also includes events to build atmosphere before and after every kick-off which include Brazilian dance flash mobs to the tune of the official World Cup anthem, Brazilian-style appetizers with a Caipirinha drink and the crowning of ‘Mister World Cup 2014’.
