2012 continues to be a year of cancellations and itinerary shuffling for Costa Cruises, in the wake of the Costa Concordia disaster and the Costa Allegra fire.
In the wake of the Costa Allegra fire, February 27th, Costa Crociere is replacing the 28,500-ton, 1,000-passenger Costa Allegra with the 24,400-ton, 927-guest Costa Voyager, starting March 18.
The company has not determined how long it will take to repair and bring Costa Allegra back into service and restore planned cruises. Costa Cruises continues to conduct inspections and technical evaluations to ascertain what caused the generator-room fire.
