The season of cruise ships visiting Gdynia has ended. Like every year, Tricity had an opportunity to see many beautiful ships. However at the end of the season, we have a special treat for our readers. Thanks to Adventure & Cruises, Tricity News received an opportunity to visit one of the biggest ships of the season – Costa Pacifica. As a result, we are happy to deliver you an exclusive peek into the interior of this giant.
Cruise Ship Season 2017
This year the season started on the 14th of May and lasted until the 6th of September. During this period of time, cruise ships visited Gdynia 43 times. Among the visiting ships there were such ships as Serenade of the Seas (295,3 m long) MSC Magnifica (293,8 m) or Mein Schiff 6 (295,3 m). Additionally, throughout the season the port in Gdynia hosted the biggest ship so far – Norwegian Getaway. This cruise ship is 325,7 m long and it carries some 4.000 tourists as well as nearly 1.700 crew members. Another interesting ship came on the 10th of August. It was one of the world’s largest sailing cruise ships – Wind Surf.
Costa Pacifica came to Gdynia 4 times this season. This 290,5 m long ship belongs to the Italian company Costa Crociere. It is one of three Concordia-class ships belonging to the company. Its history begins in 2005 when the company ordered the ship along with three other vessels. The christening took place at Genoa in Italy in 2009.
The ship has 17 decks including 3 technical levels. It carries up to 3.780 passengers, who receive a service of 1.100 crew members. On the decks we find 5 onboard restaurants, 12 bars, and for those who like to stay active there are 4 swimming pools, 5 jacuzzis as well as an onboard spa. This 6.000 m2 facility consists of a gym, treatment rooms, saunas, solarium and more. The ship offers also something for the spirit – a three-level theatre makes a huge impression on the visitors.
The main theme of the interior design is music. This is visible in the musical motives which are everywhere within the visitor’s sight. The passengers can also enjoy a rich entertainment program on the deck.
The prices of a cruise trip on Costa Pacifica vary from around 300 EUR up to nearly 1250 EUR per person (prizes according to Adventure & Cruises for the day 08.09.2017). If you dream about sailing across the seas surrounded by music and attractions, maybe this is an idea for your holidays? We enjoyed our short visit very much and we’re sure you would do so too.
