Newly minted Costa Diadema heads to Trieste

Costa Crociere
Costa Diadema departs Marghera, bound for Trieste
The newly minted Costa Diadema left Fincantieri's Marghera shipyard on Thursday, bound for Trieste, which will be the first port to welcome the vessel, on Friday.

It will be an occasion of celebration for the whole city, with a party organized on board and fireworks over Trieste at night.

Costa Diadema will embark on its vernissage cruise from Trieste Saturday, with calls at Dubrovnik, Corfu, Malta and Naples. The voyage will end in Genoa on Nov. 7, where the christening is to take place.

The 132,500gt vessel was handed over to Costa Crociere last Saturday.
