Costa Cruises obtains RINA Biosafety Trust certification

Luigi Filoramo

Costa Crociere continues to work for a responsible and safe start of its operations and becomes the first cruise company to earn the Biosafety Trust Certification from RINA.

The certification process, carried out through audits, examines all aspects of life onboard and ashore, assessing the compliance of the system with the scheme procedures aimed at the prevention and control of infections.

Based on the actual epidemiological situation and considering the opinion of experts, Costa will also perform the antigenic Covid-19 swab tests to all embarking guests. The quick antigenic test will identify any suspicious cases that may be subjected to a PCR test for a further check, thus determining the possibility of embarkation.

Our return to cruise operations will be progressive and in the name of maximum safety for guests, crew, and destination communities. The first cruises with Costa Deliziosa on September 6th from Trieste and Costa Diadema on September 19th from Genoa will be for Italian guests, to explore Italy. We will be ready to welcome all other guests soon.
