Costa invests 'millions' in fleet maintenance

Date Posted: 13 Feb 2009

Over the last three months Costa Cruises has invested more than 22 million euros in fleet maintenance.

Each of Costa's 12 ships undergoes maintenance every two years and this year it was the turn of the Costa Serena, Costa Europa, Costa Atlantica, Costa Romantica and Costa Concordia.

The Costa Serena was dry-docked earlier this month at the Fincantieri Palermo shipyard, where improvements were made to its fuel and energy systems.

Work was also carried out on the ship's air conditioning system in public areas.

"The other operation involved the application of a special ecological silicone-based coating that inhibits the growth of micro-organisms on the hull's surface without releasing toxic substances into the sea," Costa said.

Maintenance work also involved a makeover of the hotel section, with curtains, carpets and other upholstery items replaced.

Other ships in Costa's fleet include the Fortuna, Romantica and Classica.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
