Set to debut for Carnival Cruise Line in 2023, the Costa Venezia is wrapping up its final crusing for Costa Cruises right this moment.
Marking the tip of a program within the Jap Mediterranean, the 2019-built vessel returned to Istanbul to disembark passengers of its last cruise within the area.
After departing from the identical port on Nov. 20, the 11-night voyage sailed to Turkey, Egypt and Israel, visiting Izmir, Kusadasi, Bodrum, Alexandria and Haifa.
The Vista-class cruise ship will now enter an operational pause earlier than being formally added to the Carnival fleet.
Through the interval, it will likely be tailored to showcase what the U.S.-based firm calls “Carnival Enjoyable Italian Type.”
In response to the model, the brand new idea combines Carnival’s signature expertise with the Italian theming of the ship.
Initially constructed for the Chinese language market, the Venezia options public areas, amenities and décor impressed by the Italian metropolis of Venice.
The ship’s foremost theatre, as an example, was impressed by the Venetian La Fenice theatre, whereas the primary atrium remembers the well-known Piazza di San Marco.
Different themed areas contains the primary eating places, which had been devoted to the standard structure of Venetian alleys and have unique, life-sized gondolas made by native artisans.
Whereas being ready to launch service for its new operators, the ship will even obtain a few of Carnival’s signature actions and experiences, reminiscent of Carnival Waterworks, Piano Bar 88 and the Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse.
Different additions embody Bonsai Sushi, Seafood Shack, Cloud 9 Salon & Spa and the Serenity Grownup-Solely Retreat.
The Venezia can also be receiving a brand new livery that mixes Costa and Carnival colours, highlighted by the Italian model’s yellow funnel.
A second ship is being added to the “Carnival Enjoyable Italian Type” lineup in 2024, with the debut of the Carnival Firenze.
