Costa Toscana, the newest Italian-flagged ship in Costa Cruises' fleet, is setting sail today, March 5, from Savona (Italy) on her maiden voyage.

Costa Toscana is the latest-generation ship powered by LNG (liquefied natural gas), the most advanced technology available in the maritime sector to reduce emissions. The parent company of Italy-based Costa Cruises and Germany-based AIDA, Costa Group, was the first in the cruise industry to use LNG. The company has 4 ships powered by the technology: AIDAnovaAIDACosma, Costa Smeralda, and Costa Toscana.

Costa Toscana marks the restart of Costa Cruises' fleet after the COVID crisis pause. After Toscana, 7 more liners will return to operation. Until this summer, the entire fleet of 12 cruise ships will be operational.

From spring 2022 to winter 2022-2023, Costa’s schedule features a total of 1,800+ cruises, with itineraries ranging between 3-127 days in length. The line’s ships will visit 179 destinations with a revamped excursion offer, which provides ~1,800 different tours to enjoy experiences in the heart of each place, also due to long calls in ports.
