Costa Cruises to Roll Out New Livery Fleetwide

Now in its 70th anniversary year, the Costa Cruises fleet will sail with a new livery that pays tribute to Italy, the company's homeland since its foundation, the cruise line reports.

A stylized Italian flag, as well as the name of the ship, will be painted on the bow in a specially designed new font in larger lettering than previously used.

The first ship to display the new livery is Costa Mediterranea. The logo was painted during a short cruise in the Mediterranean: on Thursday, April 5, during a port call at Marseille, France, the left side of the bow was painted, and the day after in Savona, Italy, it was the right side’s turn.

This exclusive, invite-only event focused on the luxury travel market brings together world-class travel agency owners and managers with the most opulent, luxury suppliers to cultivate collaboration, share insights, and help carve a path into the future of luxury travel.

By the end of the year, the rest of the Costa fleet currently in service will also be painted, according to the cruise line. The project also covers the new ships under construction, including Costa Venezia and Costa Smeralda, scheduled to be delivered in March 2019 and October 2019, respectively.

Soon the Italian flag will wave at the bow of Costa ships, as well as at the stern, taking “Italy's finest” to around 250 destinations across the globe, the cruise line said.
