Costa's Big Investment In Ship Refurbishment

Costa Cruises is investing more than €10million in major refurbishments of three of the fleet’s ships, which are scheduled to arrive in Genoa this month for planned maintenance work.

The work will be performed at San Giorgio del Porto shipyard, one of the international leaders for ship repairs and refitting. 
The boutique-style 24,400-ton Costa Voyager will be serviced first for about two weeks from 7 November, while Costa neoRiviera (above; 48,200 tons) will also be in the shipyard from 7-12 November and Costa Classica (53,000 tons) will receive maintenance works from 12 November to 21 December.

Operations will include the hull and engine section for Costa Voyager, while work on Costa Classica is routine maintenance, performed on average every 36 months, involving both the hull and engine section and the hotel section. 
For Costa neoRiviera, previously operated as the Grand Mistral for Iberocruceros, the Spanish brand owned by the Costa Crociere S.p.A. Group, operations scheduled in addition to hull and engine work include renovations to open-air decks and inside guest areas to add to the charming atmosphere reminiscent of the Italian and French Rivieras.
