Rescued fisherman express gratitude to Costa Victoria's captain and crew

Representatives of the rescued crew express gratitude to Costa Victoria's captain Viscsafé
Twelve Chinese fishermen who were rescued last month by Costa Victoria from a burning vessel in the South China Sea met with the master and his team to officially thank them for spotting the troubled boat and getting them safely to shore.

A representative for the fishermen said, ‘On behalf of my crew and I, we would like to give our sincere thanks to Costa Victoria for taking action at such a crucial time for us and  saving our lives.  Your heroic instincts brought us here today.’

Paolo Viscafé the captain of Costa Victoria said: ‘Costa has continuously strived for the maritime safety as our top priority. As a responsible company, we feel a duty to devote ourselves to provide humanism assistance when we are needed. This time it occurred in the South China Sea, which is a part of the China market that we place great importance on.’

Next year sees three Costa ships deployed in the China market.
