Costa Firenze is a Vista-class cruise ship currently under construction at Fincantieri's shipyard in Marghera for Costa Cruises, a division of Carnival Corporation & plc. She will exclusively serve the Chinese market along with her sister ship, Costa Venezia, after arriving in China in fall 2020.

At the time of her delivery, Costa Firenze and Costa Venezia will jointly be the second largest ships in the Costa Cruises fleet, behind Costa Smeralda.

History

Planning and construction

Carnival Corporation entered a strategic agreement with Fincantieri in March 2015 about 5 cruise ships for delivery between 2019 and 2022. The Enchanted Princess was ordered in April 2016. In December 2015 Carnival and Fincantieri signed a memorandum of agreement about 4 cruise ships of them. In January 2016, Carnival Corporation announced that they were expanding the Asian fleet for Costa Cruises through a commitment they had established with the shipbuilder, Fincantieri. This would consist of two vessels at 135,500 GT each, with a guest capacity of approximately 4,200 passengers. The contracts were finalized in April 2016, which were built off of a memorandum agreed upon between the cruise line and the shipyard earlier in 2015. The ships, comprising a new class of vessels in Costa's fleet, were planned to continue carrying Costa's Italian-style interior designs and features for the Asian clientele.

On 6 May 2019, Costa Cruises announced that the second of the two vessels built specifically for the Chinese market would be named Costa Firenze, named after Florence, Italy, and have interior features inspired by Florentine history and culture. The ship was floated out from the shipyard on 6 November 2019.

Delivery

Costa Firenze is scheduled to be delivered on 30 September 2020.

Itineraries

Carnival Corporation announced on 6 May 2019 that Costa Firenze would initially spend her first month in service sailing the Mediterranean, calling on ports in Italy, Spain, and France. Her maiden voyage was scheduled for 1 October 2020, departing from Trieste and calling in Bari, Barcelona, and Marseille, before arriving in Savona. Then, she was to depart from Savona on 2 November to begin a 51-day cruise to Hong Kong, arriving on 22 December.

However, in late-August 2019, Costa Cruises announced changes to Costa Firenze's maiden deployments. These changes scrapped the maiden voyage and her month of Mediterranean sailings that were planned and the ship will, instead, head for Singapore immediately following her delivery and debut for Chinese customers on 20 October.
