March 4, 2019 - On February 28th, the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone officially handed over the new cruise ship Costa Venezia to Costa Crociere.

The baptism was performed by a Chinese family.

Costa Venezia can only be booked for Chinese guests. From May 18, 2019, the new building will set out on cruises in Asia from Shanghai. A Chinese godmother was therefore selected for the ship's christening. Godmother Gan Beiye and her family are big Costa fans. They made their first Costa trip in 2011. Families like those of the godparents are the ideal guests that Costa Crociere woos with the Venezia.
