Costa to Test All Guests for COVID-19

Posted by

Costa Cruises has announced that for its restart in September and beyond it will perform antigenic COVID-19 swab tests to all embarking guests.

The restart starts with the first departure of the Costa Deliziosa, scheduled for September 6 from Trieste.

Costa also said it became the first cruise company to earn the Biosafety Trust Certification from RINA,

The certification process, carried out through audits, examines all aspects of life onboard and ashore – from the embarkation procedures to hotel services, catering, fitness, relaxation areas and shore excursions – and assesses the compliance of the system with the scheme procedures aimed at the prevention and control of infections.

To obtain certification from RINA, specific training modules for crews have been created in strict compliance with the new health protocols and with the associated shipboard management system implemented by Costa.
