Costa Cruises Costa Allegra Future In Doubt

During today's earnings call Carnival Corp stated that the Costa Allegra will not be returning to service under the Costa banner. The ship which has been up for sale for years, suffered fire damage on February 27, 2012 and needed to be towed to port after spending 4 days without power. Carnival Corp has determined that the price to repair the ship does not make good economic sense. Carnival Corp has said to lower the price of the ship making it appealing to other operators interested in repairing the ship or potentially scrappers.

The Costa Allegra was built in 1992 on the hull of a Johnson Line container-ship and has been a favorite among passengers in the Mediterranean. When introduces the ships were futuristic and modern. Her eternal design is very pleasing and I do hope she finds further employment.
