Fincantieri floated out Costa Venezia at its Monfalcone yard on June 22, 2018.
The ship is being built for Costa Cruises, a subsidiary of the Carnival Corporation, and follows Costa designs.
Costa Venezia will enter service in March 2019, once the interior fittings have been completed, and will primarily operate in China.
Costa currently has seven new ships on order for delivery by 2023.
