Costa Smeralda in Sanremo: Unique Artists and Events

Four artists will take the stage each night, connected to the Ariston Theatre in Sanremo while aboard the Costa Smeralda.

Once again, Costa Cruises reaffirms its association with the most followed and anticipated festival.

Following the success of previous editions, the 2024 event is expected to be highly attended, with Costa Smeralda taking center stage on its renowned sea platform.

Already anchored in Sanremo, Costa Smeralda will host extraordinary performances by Italian and international artists, seamlessly linked to the Ariston Theatre. Tedua, Bob Sinclar, Bresh, and Gigi D’Agostino are set to headline these evenings.

The first night, on February 6, will feature Tedua, who will also perform during the closing night on February 10.

Bob Sinclair will follow on February 7, Bresh on February 8, and Gigi D’Agostino will return to the stage on February 9.

In addition to the remarkable onboard events, this edition’s uniqueness lies in Costa Smeralda‘s striking scenic display, illuminating a massive LED screen visible from Sanremo, providing a one-of-a-kind spectacle.

During the opening ceremony on February 4, launching the Sanremo week officially, brand activation commenced through a light and music show in collaboration with the Municipality of Sanremo, captivating all present. This spectacle will be repeated throughout the festival.

Using cutting-edge technology, Costa Smeralda transforms into a captivating speaking stage with luminous displays, garnering attention and awe.

The brand activation of Costa Crociere can be followed on Costa’s Instagram profile:

Mario Zanetti, CEO of Costa Crociere, stated: “After the tremendous success of the last three editions, we return to Sanremo with Costa Smeralda to present something even more thrilling. We aim to showcase the wonder of a Costa cruise in its fullest expression, offering unique emotions. Our ship will be a Club-style stage at sea, where guests can dance, have fun, and celebrate, accompanied by the music of renowned Italian and international artists. Moreover, in the spirit of innovation that has always defined our company in over 75 years of history, we wanted to astonish the entire city and Italians with an unprecedented activation, demonstrating how our ships are true entertainment venues.”

In light of this event, Costa Crociere has decided to offer a special cruise event, allowing guests to experience the Sanremo Festival from a completely different perspective!

Onboard guests will have the opportunity to partake in unique experiences related to this special event, in addition to witnessing performances by special guests, including some surprises.

Throughout their stay on Costa Smeralda, guests can choose to disembark independently or join organized excursions to explore the beauty of the city of Sanremo and its surroundings.

The splendid presence of Costa Smeralda in the harbor enhances the local context, adding value to the surrounding environment, and provides the Municipality of Sanremo with the opportunity to be further discovered in all its beauty.

Costa Smeralda, like its twin Costa Toscana, is the most innovative ship in the Costa Cruises fleet, designed as a true “smart city” on the move, at the forefront of technology, making it particularly suitable for hosting the cruise event.

In 2024, it will offer week-long cruises in the Western Mediterranean.
