Default Costa New Build

Costa and its parent Company Carnival will shortly announce the finalization of plans for a sister ship to the CostaAtlantica. The decision was made in light of the excellent reception the CostaAtlantica received upon its innaugural. The new ship, not yet named, will debut in July, 2003.
