Costa neoRomantica to join Celestyal Cruises fleet
Costa neoRomantica is the seventh ship to be sold from the Carnival Corporation fleet in recent weeks

Costa Cruises’ Costa neoRomantica has been sold to Celestyal Cruises, which operates itineraries in the Greek Islands and the Eastern Mediterranean.

The 1,800-guest ship, which is the seventh vessel to be sold in the Carnival Corporation fleet since the Covid-19 pandemic, will join the fleet alongside Celestyal Olympia and Celestyal Crystal.

Built in 1993 and extensively refurbished in 2012, Costa neoRomantica boasts multiple bars and lounges, dining and entertainment venues, a gym, a spa and two pools. There are 789 guest cabins, including 132 with private balconies.

“While Covid-19 has brought a temporary pause to our operations, it is important that we look to the future with optimism and continue to deliver on our strategic plan to grow the business and enhance the award-winning Celestyal experience through investment,” said Chris Theophilides, CEO of Celestyal Cruises. “I’m delighted with the addition of this mid-size cruise vessel to our fleet. She is ideally suited to our business model and is very well appointed following her significant transformation in 2012. I’m confident that she will prove to be a very popular choice amongst our valued guests and will allow us to continue providing truly unique experiences to our valued guests for years to come.”

Celestyal Cruises will reveal more information about the ship’s delivery and itineraries at a later date.
