Ex-Costa Allegra to be Scrapped in Turkey

The Costa Allegra, which suffered an engine room fire earlier this year, has been sold and is set to be scrapped, according to various reports.

In a statement to Cruise Industry News, Costa Crociere confirmed the sale of the 820-passenger vessel.

“Costa Cruises confirms the deal for the sale of Costa Allegra has been completed and formalized,” said the company. “The ownership of the vessel has been passed to Themis Maritime Ltd. The financial terms of the operations cannot be disclosed. We are not aware about the programs established by the new owners about the future use of the vessel.”

The ship has since been renamed the Santa Cruise under a Sierra Leone flag, and has been sold to Turkish scrappers. She is currently said to be in Genoa before her final voyage to Aliaga, Turkey.

Phone calls and emails from Cruise Industry News to Ferrando & Massone, the broker believed to be involved in the deal, were not returned.
