Costa will protect the health and safety of its passengers, crew members, and local communities by rolling out its brand new Costa Safety Protocol, including new operating procedures designed to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

In a statement, the company said Costa Cruises was "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, harbor master’s offices, ports and terminals and RINA."

Costa Cruises' other cruise operations remain suspended until September 30.
