Carnival Corp’s sale of the Costa Victoria to Italy’s San Giorgio del Porto Shipyard (SGdP) puts Italy on the cruiseship recycling map. The purchase plays a significant part in the yard’s plan to become Europe’s first facility capable of recycling large cruiseships in accordance with European Union environmental regulations. The ship will be used as a trial vessel in a project to recycle cruiseships. The Costa Victoria is the first active cruiseship that Carnival Corp has sold for recycling in its 48-year history.
