Mar 07, 2022

Costa Cruises' newest flagship Costa Toscana departed from Savona on her maiden voyage. Costa Toscana first 7-night cruise will sail to Marseille, Barcelona, Valencia, Palermo and Civitavecchia (Rome), and this program will run until the end of April 2022.

Costa Toscana is the second ship in Costa Cruises fleet to be powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG). This is the most advanced technology currently available in the maritime sector to reduce emissions.

Starting from May the ship will offer weekly cruises from Savona to Civitavecchia, Naples, Ibiza, Valencia, and Marseille. From mid-October 2022, Ibiza will be replaced by Palma de Mallorca before the ship sailis to Brazil in December for the 2022/23 winter season from Santos.

“The departure of Costa Toscana represents a new step in the journey that will bring our fleet back to full capacity this summer. Our restart will bolster an ecosystem that before the pandemic generated an annual economic impact of €12.6 billion in Europe, including €3.5 billion in Italy alone, with over 63,000 jobs,” said Mario Zanetti, president of Costa Cruises.

 “We are seeing an increasing demand for our cruises. Furthermore, as the general situation improves, we expect a simplification of our enhanced health and safety protocols, based on our ongoing monitoring of the pandemic,” Zanetti added.

“I believe that cruises will soon be back to normal, with new protocols that will allow our guests to fully enjoy the experiences onboard and ashore, with the return, for example, of free excursions for guests.”

Costa plans to restart the entire fleet of 12 cruise ships by this summer There are more than 1,800 cruises available with itineraries ranging from 3 to 127 days.

The company’s ships will visit 179 destinations worldwide, with a completely revamped excursion offer, providing about 1,800 unique tours.
