Costa Diadema Arrives at Trieste

Earlier this week, Fincantieri delivered the 132,500-ton Costa Diadema to Costa Cruises. Yesterday it left the shipyard, and today it made its first port call at nearby Trieste (Italy). Trieste will be the site of a huge celebration tonight with a gala dinner and fireworks display over Trieste. Tomorrow the ship will leave on a cruise to Genoa where it will be christened and from which it will depart on its inaugural cruise. Costa Diadema is the largest ship ever to fly the Italian flag.
