Finnish Meyer Turku shipyard has decided to postpone the delivery of the Costa Cruises’ liquefied natural gas-powered cruise ship, Costa Smeralda. 

The company noted that the delivery has been pushed back from mid-October to mid-November.

With its new cruise ship LNG propulsion system and many sophisticated rooms with stage and audio/video equipment, the complexity and sophistication of the ship is very high in order to create a unique Costa-style passenger experience, the shipyard said.

“In getting this all to work together with many involved persons and companies, Meyer Turku had a slower progress speed than needed, despite counter-actions,” the statement reads.

The vessel will be the first LNG-powered cruise ship in the Costa fleet and one of the first ones to sail the seas.
