MIAMI, May 14 — Costa, Europe’s Number One Cruise Line, is kicking off its Diamond Anniversary in 2008 with incredible savings of up to 60% on most Europe 2008 itineraries. The “Diamond Anniversary Jubilee,” which begins today, offers North Americans outstanding values for sailing Europe with Costa, the cruise line that offers the biggest and best selections in the region.

With nearly 60 years of cruising the region and a fleet of innovative, new ships, Costa provides guests the best of the “old world” in a “new world” setting.
