Vulkan Built Cruise Ship Leaves Dock For Bremerhaven

The Costa Victoria, an 820-ft. (250-m) cruise ship being built for theJtalkan com- pany Costa erociere S.p.A., recently had its hull completed at Bremer Vulfean shipyard, and left the dock destined for the Lloyd shipyard in Bremerhaven for outfitting. The shipbuilder used about 14,800 tons of steel for the 74,000-ton luxury vessel. In Bremerhaven, Lloya — the ship repair and conversion specialist—will install more than 1,000 cabins. The ship is due for its first technical voyage in February 1996, and its maiden voyage in June 1996.

The vessel is being built to meet the latest international safety standards, and will be one of the most technologically advanced luxury liners in the world. Joint responsibility for the project is being taken by four Vulkan Group companies: Bremer Vulkan, Schichau Seebeck and Lloyd shipyards; as well as STN Atlas Elektronik.
