Costa Deliziosa will be the first Costa ship to set sail, offering itineraries from Trieste, Italy

Costa Cruises to gradually restart operations from Italian ports on 6 September following the Italian Government’s approval for the resumption of cruising in the country.

Costa Deliziosa will be the first ship to set sail on 6 September, offering a total of four cruises from Trieste to ports in Italy. Meanwhile, Costa Diadema will restart operations on 19 September and sail a seven-day cruise from Genoa to destinations in Italy. The itineraries can only be booked by Italian passengers, taking into account a regulation issued by the Italian Ministry of Health regarding mandatory checks for travellers returning from some European and foreign destinations. 

The cruise line will protect the health and safety of its guests, crew and local communities by rolling out its new Costa Safety Protocol, which includes new operating procedures designed to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

“Costa Cruises is working with flag state authorities and the destinations to ensure a responsible, smooth and well organised application of the new regulations and protocols, in close cooperation with the local institutions, health authorities, harbour master’s offices, ports and terminals and RINA,” said the company in a statement.

Costa’s other cruise operations will remain suspended until 30 September 2020.
