Several passengers on the Costa neoRomantica have mentioned to me that the cruise ship experienced a power loss during last week’s cruise. Here’s one comment:
" . . . i was on the Costa Neoromantica on her last cruise between Savona and Marseille. At the entrance of the Marselle port, the ship was in total blackout during 1h10. And she leave again 2 hours after the beginning of the technical problem. During the blackout, the ship restart 2 times but with no success. The 3 time was the good.
Passengers don’t panic but the ship drift at the beginning of the blackout because the wind was very hard. The ship tilt really a lot. The anchors were dropped.
Finally, the ship arrived in the Marseille Port with 2h15 late. The ship just out of a drydock 15 days in Genoa."
Costa neoRomantica (formerly the Costa Romantica) was completed in 1993 as a sister ship to Costa neoClassica. In 2011, the cruise ship underwent a major refurbishing in excess of $100 million, including the addition of two new decks. After the refurbishing, the ship was renamed neoRomantica.
