Costa Cruises’ Costa Mediterranea has entered dry dock this week as part of the line’s four million euro fleet maintenance.

The ship will be off-duty from 21 November to 4 December 2013 in Palermo.

The servicing will include routine maintenance work on the hull and engine section and the hotel section. The hull will also be cleaned and repainted and the hotel department will receive new carpeting, curtain, upholstery and other items.

After completing her servicing, she will depart from Savona on a transatlantic cruise to Guadalupe.
