Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri held an official float-out ceremony today for Costa Firenze, Costa Cruises’ second ship designed and built specifically for the Chinese market.

The ceremony was held at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Marghera, where the ship is being built with scheduled delivery for September 30, 2020, once the interior fittings have been completed.

Costa Firenze is the sister ship of Costa Venezia, built by Fincantieri at Monfalcone shipyard and launched in Trieste in early March 2019.

With a gross tonnage of 135,500 tons, 323 meters in length and a capacity for over 5,200 guests, Costa Firenze and Costa Venezia are the biggest ship introduced by Costa to the Chinese market, according to the shipbuilder. The units are part of the company’s expansion plan that includes a total of 7 ships being delivered to the Costa Group by 2023, for a total investment of over EUR 6 billion (USD 6.65 billion).

“Costa Firenze is a further proof of Costa Cruises’ long-term commitment to China market,” Vanessa Li, Vice President Marketing of Costa Group Asia, said.

After its delivery, Costa Firenze will be heading to Singapore, starting offering cruises for Chinese customers from October 20, 2020.
