Costa to Receive Two of Carnival’s Nine-Ship Order

In March Carnival announced plans to build nine ships for delivery from 2019 through 2022. They are going to be split between Fincantieri and Meyer. Meyer will build four and split them between their Papenburg and Turku facilities.

Last month when the contract with Meyer was finalized, Carnival said the two ships built in Papenburg would go to their German brand, AIDA. Today they revealed that the two built in Turku will go to Costa for delivery in 2019 and 2020.

Details appeared in the July 28 edition of Cruise News Daily
