Costa neoRiviera (built 1999 as “Mistral”, last refurbished in 2013) is currently the smallest Costa cruise ship. The neoRiviera ship’s name was changed 3 times. As the newbuild ms Mistral, she operated for THE Festival Cruises LINE between 1999 and 2003. After the Festival lines’ bankruptcy, THE VESSEL was sold to Carnival CorpORATION and transferred to the fleet of Iberocruises (2003 to 2013) sailing as “Grand Mistral”. The neoRiviera ship is in the Costa Cruises fleet since November 2013. As one of the line’s “neoCollection” ships, she is related to Costa neoClassica and Costa neoRomantica.

Cruise ship Pepper robots
An innovative AIDA and Costa Cruises program implemented latest cyborg technology fleetwide. Humanoid robots greet and guide passengers upon embarkation. They also assist them throughout the cruise by providing information and tips on dining (restaurants, bars), entertainment (lounges, scheduled events, presentations, promotions) and Costa Cruises shore excursions and tours (offered in ports of call along the cruise ship itinerary).
These robots (named “Pepper”) are able to communicate in 3 different languages (English, German, Italian), to move fluidly and even to interpret human emotions by analyzing voice tones and face expressions.
Designed by the companies ALDEBARAN and SoftBank, the Pepper robot was launched in Japan (June 2014) as the world’s first “emotional” robot. The machine's main statistics are:
- height 120 cm / 4 ft
- weight 28 kg / 62 pounds
- 3x wheels (omnidirectional)
- 17x joints
- 1x 3D depth sensor
- 2x HD cameras
- 4x microphones
- touch sensors (in its head and hands)
- a 10-inch (25 cm) touch screen
The new technology was first tested on the AIDAstella ship where Pepper learned to engage with passengers and crew. The first set of robots were introduced on Costa Diadema and AIDAprima in April 2016. By the end of summer 2016, Pepper robots were added on all AIDA and Costa ships.
