Both cruise ships are the youngest ships in the Vista class. The 323 meter long units were originally intended for use in the Chinese market. The corona pandemic destroyed this plan. The concept developed for the use of the ships flying the Carnival flag is intended to combine Italian design and Mediterranean flair with the American fun philosophy. According to unconfirmed reports, the model called "Costa by Carnival" intends to let both cruise ships operate visually unchanged. The names are also retained. The crew and the routes are adapted to US needs.
