Costa Smeralda
Costa Smeralda will become the flagship of the fleet when she arrives in November 2019

Costa Diadema, at 132,500 tons, became the biggest cruise ship ever to fly the Italian flag when she arrived in October 2014, but Costa Smeralda will take over the mantle of flagship when she arrives in November, 2019, becoming the first ship in the fleet to be powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG).

The company - part of the Carnival group of cruise lines - began operations in the1860s when its first ship was used to transport olive oil from the family-owned refinery in Genoa - still the home of Costa Cruises - to South America.

All of the ships in the Costa fleet have been assigned RINA’s Green Star notation certifying that they are operated in compliance with the highest environmental protection standards.
