Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Monday, 20 October 2008

On 28 June 2009, Costa Serena, the flagship of the Italian fleet of Costa Cruises, will depart from Venice on a cruise dedicated to Edson Arantes Do Nascimento, better known as Pel, the O Rey (the King) of world football.

The cruise, called El crucero de Pel Sabor Brasil, is being organised by Grupo Olympia, a company with more than 20 years of entertainment experience in Brazil.

Commenting on the planned cruise, Pel said, I would like to take this occasion to invite some of Europes best footballers of the 20th century to take this cruise. Passengers will include presidents of football confederations, federations and clubs as well as other big names from the sports and media world. Conferences and meetings dedicated to todays football will also be held during the cruise. During my career as a footballer, I was often far from my family and my friends, but I have never forgotten the special atmosphere and the unique flavours of my country. When I began to feel saudade, meaning when I was homesick, what I wanted the most was to be able to experience the traditions and customs of my beloved Brazil. The Costa Serena cruise, during which everything will be focused on Brazil, will spread joy throughout the entire eastern Mediterranean, with stops in Italy, Croatia and Greece. I look forward to seeing you all on board.

The cruise  program, based on brasilei (Brazilian) rhythms, atmospheres and flavours, promises to get even the shiest guest totally involved. The cruise will be a combination of pleasure and fun, with lots of parties, festivities and musical shows involving great Brazilian performers such Alexandre Pires, Toquinho and the Grupo Sereno.

Gastronomy will also be on centre stage, with events based on Brazilian delicacies, including theme parties, like Brasl en Alta Mar. There will also be an exhibition of historic collectors items tied to some of the great moments in Pels life, with neverseen- before video clips. In other words, a real brazilea cruise that puts football, samba and feijoada in the spotlight, with everything flavoured to perfection by delicious caipirias.

Pels cruise will not only offer relaxation and fun but also business opportunities for all sport professionals.
