Costa Pacifica is a Concordia-class cruise ship for Costa Crociere. She was handed over to Costa Crociere on 29 May 2009. Her sister ships, Costa Concordia and Costa Serena, were launched in 2006 and in 2007, with Costa Favolosa and Costa Fascinosa launched in 2011 and 2012 respectively. Onboard facilities include the Samsara Spa and PlayStation World, an area boasting PS3 consoles, and the first recording studio at sea. The ship was inaugurated in a dual christening ceremony, along with Costa Luminosa on 5 June 2009.

Concept and construction

Costa Pacifica is the third ship of the Concordia-class, preceded by sister ships Costa Concordia and Costa Serena and was followed by Costa Favolosa and Costa Fascinosa on 2011 and 2012, all part of the expansion program of Costa which entailed an investment of 2.4 billion Euro, and is currently the largest fleet expansion program in the world.

Costa Pacifica was ordered on 14 December 2005, by Carnival Corporation, the parent company of Costa Crociere. The order was four ships, which includes; Carnival Dream, for Carnival Cruise Lines; Nieuw Amsterdam for Holland America Line; and Ruby Princess for Princess Cruises, at a total cost of US$3 billion.

The bow section of Costa Pacifica was built at the Fincantieri Palermo shipyard and was launched on 24 July 2007. The section was then towed to Fincantieri's Sestri Ponente in August 2007 for further work, which also marked the announcement of the ship's name. She was launched at Fincantieri's Sestri Ponente shipyard on 30 June 2008. She returned to Sestri Ponente from her sea trials on 30 March 2009, for the fitting-out process. Almost 3,000 workers helped in the construction of Costa Pacifica.

She was later christened at Genoa, Italy on June 5, 2009, in a dual christening ceremony, together with Costa Luminosa. The dual christening ceremony was the world's first which set a Guinness World Record in the new category "Most ships inaugurated in one day by one company".
