Costa Smeralda to be Delivered a Month Late

Citing technical complexities, Meyer Turku is delaying the delivery of the cruise ship Costa Smeralda one month from mid-October to mid-November.

With its new LNG propulsion system and many sophisticated rooms with stage and audio/video equipment the complexity and sophistication of the ship is very high in order to create a unique Costa-style passenger experience. Aside from its unique design features also its size of 180,000 GT is much larger than the recently built ships at Turku shipyard.

In getting this all to work together with many involved persons and companies, Meyer Turku had a slower progress speed than needed.
