The 2003-built ship will be operated as Mediterranea by Adora Cruises following a refurbishment bringing new livery, upgrades and adaptations for Chinese passengers.
It is scheduled to enter service in the fourth quarter.
The 86,000gt Mediterranea can accommodate up to 2,680 passengers in 1,057 staterooms and suites.
In January 2020, Costa Atlantica had transferred to the joint venture between China State Shipbuilding Corp. and Carnival Corp. & plc, with Costa Mediterranea following. It was idle during the pandemic.
