Costa Mediterranea Enters Drydock For €4 Million Refurbishment

Costa-MediterraneaAs part of Costa Cruises’ ongoing investment to improve the quality and sustainability of its fleet, Costa Mediterranea will be dry docked at the Fincantieri shipyard in Palermo from today, November 21 to December 4 2013, for planned maintenance work.

Costa Cruises’ is investing more than €4 million to perform the routine refurbishment, which takes place approximately every two and a half years to keep the fleet fresh and modern.

The renewal work will involve thorough restoration of the ship’s hull, and a full renovation of the ship’s interior including the replacement of the carpets, curtains and upholstery.

Once the refurbishment is complete, Costa Mediterranea will depart from Savona on 6 December 2013 for a transatlantic cruise to Guadalupe, where the ship will commence its winter 2013/14 itinerary to offer seven-day cruises to the beautiful islands of the Caribbean.

Costa Mediterranea is a Spirit Class ship and was constructed at the Kvaerner Masa-Yards  in Helsinki, Finland at a cost of over 400 million. On June 16, 2003 she departed on her maiden voyage from Genoa to Spain and Portugal.

Her ten floor high Maschera d’Argento atrium and other public areas, were inspired by Italy’s 16th and 17th century palazzi and are decorated to reflect the ship’s motto “Mai visto niente di simile” which translates to ‘You’ve never seen anything like it’.

I'm REALLY missing this view! @fred.olsencruiselines Balmoral was my home for almost 7 weeks. I'm sad to have left her, my good friend and all the lovely people we met. #cruise #travel #seastheday #ship #wanderlust This is one of my favourite #photographs from #MardiGras in #NewOrleans. It's simple, but bursting with colour! Throw us some beads! 😂 #NOLA #nawlins #louisiana #travel #america
