Today Micky Arison, CEO of Carnival Corporation, revealed that the Costa Allegra, which suffered a fire in the Indian Ocean last month, will not be returning to service with Costa Cruises.
Micky Arison said that the Allegra will either be sold or scrapped in the next few months. It’s about time.
The Costa Allegra which weighs 28,500 tons is the oldest and one of the smallest ships in the Costa fleet. Micky Arison said that the Allegra has been for sale for some time before the fire in one of its engine rooms on February 27th.
The Costa Allegra was replaced by the smaller, 900 passenger ship, Costa Voyager.
