The keel of Costa’s latest ship Costa Smeralda has been laid with its coin laying ceremony taking place on 4 July.  Costa Smeralda will be the first mass-market cruise ship that will be powered fully by liquefied natural gas, the world’s cleanest burning fossil fuel.  The ship, currently being built in the Meyer shipyard in Turku, will be entering into service in October 2019 offering cruises from such European ports as Barcelona, Rome, Savona and Marseille.

Costa Atlantica and Costa Mediterranea are leaving the fleet and will be moving to a new sister brand in Costa’s parent company, Carnival Corporation, which will be based out of China.  Costa Atlantica is due to make her final cruise under the Costa flag in late 2019, while Costa Mediterranea‘s final cruising date is yet to be determined.
