Fincantieri Delivers Costa Favolosa

Fincantieri delivered the 114,500-ton Costa Favolosa to Carnival Corp today at the shipbuilder’s Marghera yard this morning.

Costa Favolosa is the eighth of nine ships that Costa ordered from Fincantieri. The next ship to enter service will be Costa Fascinosa, also under construction at Marghera, to be delivered in the spring of 2012.

Costa Favolosa will be christened on July 2 at Trieste, and will be the largest ship to fly the Italian flag.

Congratulations were in order at the handover ceremony. Shown are Pier Luigi Foschi, Chairman and CEO Costa Crociere SpA, left, and Attilio Dapelo, Fincantieri Marghera plant director.
