The first steel was cut today, July 30 2019, at the Meyer Turku shipyard in Finland for our Costa Toscana, the sister of Costa Smeralda. Costa Smeralda and Costa Toscana, slated for delivery in October 2019 and 2021 respectively, will both be powered by LNG – liquefied natural gas, the world’s cleanest burning fossil fuel –  and will both be tributes to the best of Italy.
The steel-cutting ceremony for Costa Toscana is another step forward in our sustainable development plan.  LNG propulsion for cruise ships is a major innovation, pioneering a new era in the use of low-carbon fuels that will significantly reduce exhaust emissions to help protect the environment without compromising on safety, in line with our top priorities.  and her sister ship Costa Smeralda may be highly innovative products, but they will retain that inimitable Italian hospitality that has been Costa Cruises’ hallmark since the brand’s inception, conveying the exhilaration of ocean travel and providing enhanced guest experiences for repeat and first-time cruisers alike – said our President Neil Palomba.
