Port of Barcelona welcomes Costa Smeralda

Costa Cruises' flagship vessel Costa Smeralda made the line's first port call in Barcelona since operations were suspended more than a year ago
Costa Smeralda is the first of Costa Cruises’ vessels to visit Barcelona since the start of the pandemic, arriving at the city’s port this morning.

It is also the first cruise operation powered by an LNG-powered vessel since the pandemic began.

The vessel will now operate seven-night itineraries around the Western Mediterranean, departing every Monday.

MSC Cruises' MSC Grandiosa called at the port last week.
