Costa neoRiviera to Be Transformed into AIDAmira

By ,   September 26, 2019 ,   Cruise Industry

Costa Group announced its decision to bring the neoRiviera ship to Genoa for a major (EUR 50 million) drydock refurbishment project at San Giorgio del Porto shipyard. The agreement was signed at Costa Group’s Genoa headquarters by Michael Thamm (Group CEO Costa Group and Carnival Asia) and Ferdinando Garre (CEO of San Giorgio del Porto).

The 1-month long drydock will transform Costa neoRiviera (currently part of Costa Cruises fleet) into AIDAmira (to be transferred to AIDA Cruises). Both brands are part of Costa Group (fully owned subsidiary of Carnival Corporation). The project involves ~1000 workers, of which 150 shipyard employees.
