Costa Concordia passengers to get gastronomic delights

Date Posted: 20 Jun 2006

Costa Cruises has announced further exciting developments regarding its flagship, the Costa Concordia.

On top of all the fantastic features already announced for the new Costa Cruises liner –including the grand prix racing car simulator – the Costa Concordia will also be serving food from the cutting edge of modern cuisine.

Two restaurants onboard the Costa Concordia will be supervised by Ettore Bocchia, one of the co-founders in 2002 of Italian molecular gastronomy. Mr Bocchia teamed up with a matter physics lecturer to experiment with mixing different ingredients to create a new food sensation.

The cuisine, which will be featured in both the Club Concordia and the Ristorante Samsara restaurants on board the Costa Concordia, enhances the basic ingredients resulting in a healthy eating menu for the cruise holidaymakers.

"The introduction of molecular cuisine on board a cruise ship marks the first time a cruise line has purposely designed a menu with the wellness-focused traveller in mind," said Marco Rosa, UK managing director for Costa Cruises.

"Costa has always been synonymous with great cuisine. Now we have even more options available to holidaymakers who want more than an extra notch on their belt when they come back from a glamorous getaway."

The Costa Concordia's grand inaugural cruise sets sail in July.

What our customers say

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
