Two ships are leaving the Costa fleet and heading to China to serve that country’s growing cruise market.

The first of these ships, the 85,861-ton, 2,210-passenger Costa Atlantica, is scheduled to be transferred to a new Chinese cruise line by the end of 2019.

Costa Atlantica’s sister ship, the 2,114-passenger Costa Mediterranea, will be transferred at a date still to be announced.

The new Chinese cruise division, CSSC Carnival Cruise Shipping Limited, is the result of a new joint venture between Costa Cruises parent company Carnival Corp. and China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC).
