When we think about cruise vacations and throw the word “Poseidon” into the mix, thoughts of an upside-down ship from a campy movie from the 70′s might come to mind. That’s not the case when it comes to Costa Cruises and a recent award win.
Costa Cruises received the first-ever “Poseidon Prize” for its commitment to water conservation and environmental protection from the Italian Federation of UNESCO Clubs and Centres, and the Committee for the International Hydrological Program in collaboration with the UNESCO Club of Levanto and the Cinque Terre. The award ceremony was held Sept. 20 in Marseille, France, on Costa Mediterranea during a five-day cruise that hosted a series of meetings and debates on the theme “World Heritage: Living with Water.”
The line also received the “2011 Green Cruise” designation for environmental sustainability in Monte Carlo, Monaco, Sept. 21 and on Sept. 27 in Hamburg, Germany the line received the German Cruise Prize for “Best Family Product 2012.”
No Oscar though.
