Currently being built at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy, Costa Firenze is a 135,500-gross-tons ship with a capacity for over 5,200 guests. Costa Firenze is the sister ship of Costa Venezia, which was launched in Trieste, Italy, on March 1 this year.
Costa Firenze and Costa Venezia are the Italian company’s first ships designed especially for the Chinese market. Before being positioned in Asia, Costa Firenze will spend a month in the Mediterranean, in October 2020. This will allow all of Costa’s customers in Europe and around the world to be the first to experience the new ship. Cruises will be available for booking from May 7. There will be five five-to-seven-day cruises and one 51-day positioning cruise to China.
The next ship to come into service, in October 2019, will be Costa Smeralda.
Like its sister ship Costa Venezia, Costa Firenze will offer a series of innovations designed particularly for the Chinese market.
