Costa Cruises Wins 18th Consecutive Porthole Cruise Magazine Readers Choice Award for Best in Mediterranean Itineraries



The largest Italian travel company and Europe’s favorite cruise line, Costa Cruises, has been named the top cruise line in the ‘Best Mediterranean Itineraries’ category for the 18th consecutive year in Porthole Magazine’s Readers’ Choice Awards. Considered one of the leading cruise-focused news publications, Porthole Cruise Magazine’s readers vote for their favorite cruise lines and ships in 55 categories.

Award winners were determined by thousands of readers and online fans of Porthole Cruise Magazine. The 2017 edition of the Readers’ Choice Awards garnered a record-breaking number of ballots.

“It is truly an honor for Costa Cruises to be named a winner at the Porthole Readers’ Choice Awards in such a competitive category,” said Ruben Perez, general manager, Costa Cruises North America. “With a record number of votes, it is a testament to the Costa product that consumers for 19 years have recognized our Mediterranean offerings as the best.”

Costa Cruises is one of the few cruise lines to offer year-round Mediterranean cruises. In 2018, Costa will deploy 11 ships at various times of the year across the eastern and western Mediterranean — from the coasts of Morocco to the shores of Malta on itineraries ranging from three to 14 nights.
