Costa Cruises' Costa NeoRomantica Emerges From Refit

Overshadowed by the recent events of the Costa Concordia and Costa Allegra, Costa Cruises recently reintroduced the substantially refurbished Costa Romantica. Renamed the Costa NeoRomantica, the ship underwent a $120 Million dollar refit in Genoa, Italy. The 5 month refit included the construction of new areas and the introduction of services that represent
a major evolution in the Costa product.

Above the ship's bridge, two decks were added forward making way for 111 new cabins. In addition, work included the refitting of 120 cabins and suites with balconies.

The modifications to the Costa NeoRomantica increased her occupancy levels from 1,697 to 1,800 and the number of cabins from 678 to 789. The new gross tonnage will be around 56,000, up from 53,000gt.

New areas on the Costa NeoRomantica Included a wine and cheese bar, a coffee & chocolate bar, a new pizzeria, a cabaret lounge and a nightclub. The Spa facilities on the ship were extensively expanded.

The Costa NeoRomantica spent February and March sailing from Savona on 11-day cruises to Spain, Morocco, the Canary Islands and Madeira. In the Summer she will sail in North European waters.

September 2012, the Costa NeoRomantica embarks on a 107-night voyage from Italy to Australia and New Zealand.
