Costa Cruises has completed a $21 million upgrade to four of its ships.

The Costa Victoria, Costa Marina, Costa Concordia and Costa Classica each went into drydock in Genoa or Palermo during November and December. Costa said its ships are put into such drydocks about once every two-and-a-half years to perform maintenance on technical systems and to upgrade furnishings.

The hull on each ship was cleaned and painted to prevent erosion and to improve sailing speeds.

In the hotel areas, the public spaces and cabins were restyled, with furnishings, carpeting, curtains, fabrics and wall linings replaced. In addition, LCD television screens were put into cabins and the flooring on the outer decks was replaced with teak.
