Read Time:1 Minute, 7 Seconds

December 3. Costa Cruises, the Italian cruise line brand for Carnival Corporation, took delivery on December 2 of its newest ship, the second one to be fueled with LNG. The delivery of the Costa Toscana marked the completion of more than 20 months of assembly and a total of 30 months of construction for the 185,000 gross ton cruise ship.

The third LNG-fueled cruise ship built by Meyer Turku in Finland, the Costa Toscana is built from a platform developed by Carnival and Meyer that is being used to create similar cruise ships for its AIDA, P&O, Costa, and Carnival Cruise Line brands. The ships share a common platform and technical specifications with some customization of the passenger areas for the individual brands.

Passengers will have a broad range of amenities with the interior design of the ship created as a tribute to Tuscany by designer Adam Tihany who oversaw the project working with four design firms. The furnishings, lighting, fabrics, and accessories are all made in Italy and have been designed specifically for the Costa Toscana by 15 companies. The cruise ship features 21 restaurants, 19 bars, four swimming pools along with over 2,660 cabins.

The Costa Toscana is scheduled to enter service in March 2022 sailing weekly cruises from Savona, Italy.
