Costa Cruises has announced it is to restyle and rename its Romantica ship later this year. The 1, 697-guest vessel will be renamed Costa neoRomantica and is to be refitted in a EUR90m investment starting at the end of October to the end of January next year. This will include complete new areas and services including a wine bar, a coffee bar, a show lounge bar with dance floor, a cabaret and a nightclub. A new Samsara Spa and restaurant club will also be introduced, as well as 111 new cabins and 120 private cabins on two new half decks. This will boost its capacity from 1, 697 to 1,800 passengers. Once its drydock in Genoa has been completed, neoRomantica will sail 11-day cruises to the Canary Islands from Savona and will then be moved to North Europe for two-week brand new itineraries.
