Costa Cruises has shown their support for the Ligurian port city of Savona by announcing that their 16th ship, Costa Fascinosa, will be named there on 6 May 2012.
The 510 million euro Fascinosa will be the first cruise ship to be inaugurated in Savona during her maiden voyage departing from Venice on 2 May 2012.
Costa will also continue investing in the growth of the Savona Palacrociere cruise terminal with work commencing on the second terminal in January 2012. Approximately 9 million euros has been invested in the terminal with an expected completion date of March 2013.
