Final stages of construction can now begin which includes setting up all the interior areas of the ship. Many different contractors will go onboard and transform the inside to a floating hotel.

[quote_box_center]Costa Crociere S.p.A. CEO Michael Thamm commented: “The Costa Diadema will be our new flagship and our tangible commitment to the future success and growth of our Company. She is the 10th cruise ship built in Italy by Fincantieri for Costa since 2000, with a total investment worth almost 5 billion euro. This investment creates wealth and employment for the country as a whole – not only during the building, but also when the ships are in service. The Costa Diadema’s winter itinerary will include 3 ports in Italy: Savona, Civitavecchia and La Spezia. At the same time, thanks to her innovative features, the Costa Diadema will open up new horizons for Costa.”[/quote_box_center]

The technical launch ceremony of the float out was very traditional with the welding of a coin to the base of what was previously the mainmast which is suppose to bring good luck to the ship. The godmother to the Costa Diadema, Ms. Franca Grassoof then cut the red tape and of course which is very popular in the cruise industry the champagne bottle hitting the bow of the ship.
