The Minerva and Costa neoRomantica were both reintroduced to service on Friday March 2, 2012

Two cruise ships re-entered service after extensive refits last Friday, with Swan Hellenic reintroducing its Minerva with a new forward lounge, a new promenade deck and more balconies, and Costa Cruises’ renaming its Costa Romantica as Costa neoRomantica, with two extra half-decks, 111 new cabins and 120 new balconies, as well as a complete interior redesign. This week, we also look at the South Africa route, where this year’s first northbound sailing has already left Cape Town, and next year MSC Cruises will send MSC Opera and MSC Sinfonia south. Elsewhere, Royal Caribbean’s Rhapsody of the Seas has entered Sembawang Shipyard in Singapore for a month-long mid-life refit, before heading for Alaska this summer.
