Costa Cruises, the Italian shipping company whose cruisers have been for years the first and last to sail to Dubrovnik during the season, has announced its return to Gruž tomorrow! Costa's arrival in Gruž was confirmed by the director of the Dubrovnik Port Authority, Blaž Pezo, who said that Costa had asked for Costa Deliziosa to be allowed to dock with 1,250 passengers on board.
“For now, we do not know the details and reasons why Costa decided to come to Dubrovnik. We know that the cruise ship is coming from Greece and will return to Greece, so it is to be assumed that it is docking in Dubrovnik instead of some other destination where the epidemiological situation is not as good as in our country,” said Pezo. He adds that the Dubrovnik Port Authority also has an announcement for the arrival of more ships by the end of the year, because the situation on the cruise market is recovering, but they have not been confirmed yet.
Apart from smaller cruise ships, large cruisers of the MSC Cruises company sailed into Dubrovnik this year.
