Costa_FascinosaCosta Cruises and Central Holidays have collaborated to create Costa Cruise Tours, featuring Europe packages that include air, hotel, tours, activities and a cruise.

Cruises will depart one of four ports: Civitavecchia and Savona, Italy; Marseille, France; and Barcelona, Spain.

Central Holidays will “provide a superior land-side experience to match our shipboard product,” said Scott Knutson, Costa’s vice president of sales and marketing for North America.

Costa Cruise Tours can be booked now for the 2015 travel season via Central Holidays by calling (800) 720-3009. The new brand intends to launch a website in December.
