To the Expo Dubai with the Costa Firenze

To the Expo Dubai with the Costa Firenze

November 24, 2021 | World exhibitions have been held at regular intervals since 1851. World exhibitions have been dealing with educational and environmental issues for a long time. This is particularly true of the Expo in Dubai (UAE), which is the largest expo in history with 192 countries represented.

On more than four square kilometers, the exhibition until March 1, 2022 is dedicated to the three topics for which the world is looking for answers: sustainability, mobility and opportunities. All participating countries present solutions and innovations in their pavilions and give visitors concrete ideas on how to effectively shape life.

Why not combine this top international event with a cruise?

Similar to the Expo, people from many countries around the world come together on a Costa ship. Guests from different nations use this opportunity not only to visit the Expo and the booming metropolis of Dubai, but also – as an extra – to get a deeper impression of the Emirates and the cultural and scenic features. On the week-long cruises with the Costa Firenze you will experience Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE, and Muscat in Oman, in addition to a two-day stay in Dubai. Each of these desert emirates is fascinating in its own right and thrives on contrasts: souk next to skyscrapers, luxury cars and herds of camels, gigantic shopping malls and desert nights under the starry sky.

Costa Firenze: a tribute to Florence

The shipping company welcomes guests on board the Costa Firenze with Italian hospitality. Coming into service in 2021, the Costa Firenze pays homage to the Tuscan city of Florence. The public areas are inspired by well-known squares and buildings of the city. They give the ship a unique flair. Life on board is international; German-speaking guest service is offered. Excursions are held in German.

What does the Expo offer us?

Visitors to the world expo are invited to discover the themes of the individual countries and to actively help shape the expo. The Spanish pavilion shows a Hyperloop vehicle that accelerates to up to 1.000 km/h with negative pressure. In the German pavilion, the "Campus Germany", visitors register for the subject of sustainability and attend various seminars such as the "Energy Lab" or the "Future City Lab". And in the Italian pavilion, everything focuses on sustainable construction – among other things, algae remove CO² from the air here. The Italian shipping company Costa is a partner of the Italian pavilion and also stands for sustainability.

Sustainability at Costa

The goals of the UN Agenda 2030 are the basis of the Costa Group's strategy. The company has paved the way for sustainable innovation across the cruise sector, pioneering new technologies to reduce the environmental impact of its fleet. The use of liquefied natural gas on board the Costa Smeralda (commissioning December 2019) significantly reduces emissions. The environmental aspect is part of a comprehensive sustainability concept that aims to promote inclusive tourism models that take into account the needs of local regions and communities.
